Cambodia police chief sacked over sexual misconduct in landmark case but faces no prosecution

A high-ranking Cambodian police official has been sacked over sexual misconduct at work in a landmark case in the South-east Asian nation but will not be prosecuted to “protect the dignity” of the women involved, a police official said.

Two-star general and Kampong provincial police chief Ouk Kosal was suspended last month pending an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct made by four junior female officers that hit the headlines.

In a rare public outing of sexual misconduct by an official, he was accused of forcing the female officers to perform sex acts at work under the threat of blocking their careers.
