“I have more faith in a superstitious ritual than I do in the judicial system,” she said, adding that three officials and a surveyor had died since the villagers’ first curse.

Obviously not "sleight of hand" magic.

Witches are offering a "protection racket" type of service. ie: health, wealth, and good luck. Same as many religions.

If you live by the sword be prepared to die by the sword.
Yes, but also this.
The killings often disguise family feuds or land disputes.

Take the urine of a young boy, a black buffalo and a cow. Mix in the leaves of a plant and vines renowned for their noxious odour. Lastly, add the penis of a black dog and leave the mixture to stagnate in an outdoor pool. Now take a bath in it...

^^^ Actually, I was thinking of going into the black dog breeding business.



In my first few months in the country, back in 1999, a local friend invited me to join him to eat black duck. When I asked about the color, he assured me that black duck tastes better than the other ducks.

UT the same holds true for dogs as well. They are the color of the day at a barbecue in our village.

Villager Accused of Black Magic Shot Dead

by Buth Kimsay | July 6, 2016 | អានជាភាសាខ្មែរ

A man accused of using black magic to sicken people in his village was fatally shot five times inside his home in Pursat province in what police described as a revenge killing.

An attacker approached the home in Kandieng district’s Anlong Vil commune at about 8:30 on Monday night and shot Chhem Yin, 34, with an AK-47 assault rifle, striking him in the chest, leg and shoulder, commune police chief Srey Chhumneth said on Tuesday.

“Our police are searching to arrest the murderer who escaped from the scene,” Mr. Chhumneth said.

Prek Takong village residents had made four previous attempts to kill Chhem Yin after accusing him of sickening villagers with his sorcery, and had filed complaints with police in 2014, Mr. Chhumneth said.

“This murder is revenge because villagers believed he was a sorcerer,” he said.

In rural Cambodia, there is a widespread belief in black magic, and those suspected of using it for ill intentions often face violence.

AKs are military or police issue (unless someone found a buried rusty one).
