Cambodian residents outraged after man found not guilty of killing Cambodian wife

Cambodian residents here are furious over a recent court ruling that acquitted a Korean man of charges of killing his Cambodian wife in a “disguised” car accident in order to receive insurance benefits.

A Cambodian woman in her 30s, married to a Korean living in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi Province, said, “We are all talking about the news in our chat rooms. I cannot believe the husband was released to live on insurance benefits. Now I have grown a little suspicious that my husband asked me recently to buy life insurance.”

Another Cambodian immigrant in her 30s said, “I was furious and disappointed when I heard the news. We (married immigrants) are already facing hardships due to social discrimination, and this ruling shows we are not even legally protected.”
