Ing Chhorvy sits in a two-room condominium in Phnom Penh’s upscale Tuol Kork district. The 38-year-old mother of five is neither the owner of the condo nor does she live there, but the developer wants mortgage payments for the posh unit her cousin owns.
Ing Chhorvy is worried about her children’s future after the arrest of her cousin, Ven Rachana, who went by Thai Srey Neang on Facebook and owns the condo.
“The important thing is that she is the breadwinner of the family. When she is imprisoned, what else do we have?” said Ing Chhorvy, who lives in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Sangke commune.
