Demonstrator files complaint over guard’s use of violence

The wife of a former council member of the Cambodia National Rescue Party on September 25 filed a lawsuit against a district security guard who hurled her to the ground during a protest calling for the release of her jailed husband.

Seng Chanthorn, 49, the wife of former Kampong Thom provincial council member Sun Thon, filed a complaint with the Phnom Penh Municipal Court against security guard Chhoam Praseth, who she accused of using violence against her during a demonstration on September 4.

That day, a group of about 15 relatives of jailed former CNRP members rallied near the courthouse demanding the dismissal of the charges against the 17 who have been apprehended since January for their alleged involvement in a plot to topple the government.
