Ministry Investigating Sexual Abuse Claims Against Police Chief

The Interior Ministry is investigating sexual abuse complaints from several female police officers against their male boss, the Kampong Thom provincial police chief, who was accused of both physical abuse and verbal threats in an unverified letter leaked to the press last week.

Interior Minister Sar Kheng said on Tuesday that he had received information about the allegations against provincial police chief Ouk Kosal, and forwarded the case to National Police chief Neth Savoeun and Kampong Thom provincial governor Sok Lou.

If Kosal was found guilty of abusing the women officers, he would face legal action, Kheng said in response to questions from reporters after a National Committee Against Torture event at the Interior Ministry headquarters in Phnom Penh.
