Rights groups have called for an immediate investigation into sexual misconduct accusations leveled against Kampong Thom Police Chief Ouk Kosal by four female officers.
The four officers wrote a letter addressed to Interior Minister Sar Kheng on July 30 accusing Ouk Kosal of physical assaulting them. The assault accusations include inappropriate touching and non-penetrative sex acts.
The women allege they were threatened by the police chief to keep the alleged assault secret or risk repercussions, such as losing out on promotions. All four women signed the document.
