This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
Phnom Penh: According to a source from the Facebook account Pich Staneli posted a miserable message: "Please, Bun Rany and Samdech HE, please help me: "I was threatened by a man who was physically and verbally abusive because he worked at the Ministry of Defense. I am a normal citizen. What do I do to be fair?"
The woman said that she had an affair with a boyfriend, a military officer who worked for the Ministry of Defense, and she thought that they would be married and live happily ever after. But her dreams were destroyed when her lover beat her up and physically abused her, causing serious injuries to her body.
The victim said that she does not want to name the officer or make him lose his job, but he has a high rank and she has nothing, so she is reaching out to Samdech HE on social media to ask for justice.

She doesn't want to name him or for him to lose his job, but she wants justice... I don't understand.
So far, she has not revealed his name, and if he agrees to pay her compensation for the assault (justice),then she will not splash his name all over social media. However, if he does not want to pay ... name and shame

What kind of a country is it where you have to reach out to a godlike PM instead of going to the police and then it takes the normal way in the justice system?
The power of social media. She presumably thinks it'll likely get more attention and the result she's seeking...especially if it goes viral. Could backfire on her too tho.
