Protester Files Attempted Murder Complaint Against Guard Who Shoved Her

A woman protesting the jailing of her husband, an ex-opposition official, filed a court complaint on Friday alleging attempted murder by a Phnom Penh security guard who threw her to the ground during a demonstration earlier this month.

Seng Chanthorn, the wife of former Kampong Thom provincial councilor and Cambodian Independent Teachers Association unionist Sun Thun, gathered outside the Phnom Penh Municipal Court in the morning alongside about 10 other women. The group has been regularly protesting the jailings of their husbands, who are former officials of the dissolved opposition CNRP.

Chanthorn said her attempted murder complaint was filed against Chhoam Prasidh, a Prampi Makara district security guard.
