French Woman Allegedly Gang Raped in Kampot, Cambodia

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

FWIW. Not so long ago Kampot was such a sleepy town, that yes of course you could walk or stagger home late at night, male or female.
Not exactly.

As far as I remember, the woman victim was not roaming around late at night when she was attacked. And this one terrible case dates from 2013. It's not exactly an epidemic.
But, as I said, the town has changed.

My take on this...

The scum in Kampot have been learning from the evolved, more dangerous scum from Westport.

Nothing good happens wandering the street at 3 AM. Doesn’t matter where.

Pity the poor lady. Hope she recovers.

Hopefully this gets nipped in the bud. And mass kidnappings and extortion schemes aren’t next for Kampot.

It has been my experience all my life that you can walk down almost any street anywhere at 3am,
IF you are clear headed, have your senses fully awake, and carry yourself with quiet confidence. (even if you have to fake the last one)
Forget guided city tours or learning all about a place from an expat blog (even a fab one like this)
go take a stroll at 3 am and see what's underneath all the tinsel of the town.

I don't think it's fair to say it's the fault of some beer swilling white geezers from moved to town from Sihanoukville that three local guys gang raped a French lady in Kampot.

Walking around as a woman - presumably alone - at around 3 AM is not a good idea, anywhere in the world.

You may shout: but hey that's not fair!!! That's right, it's not fair, but it's something you have to think about.

And my main point: not just in Kampot, nor in Cambodia, ANYWHERE in the world walking around alone at 3am is a risk, especially as a woman. Sorry to break the news....
Walking alone in Tokyo at 3am is just so chill and comfy.

Cambodia News UPDATED (Kampot): On October 11, at 5 PM, the police received a complaint from a 43-year-old French woman, [name removed], lived in Kampong Bay Khang Cherng village, Sangkat, Kampot.

The victim said on October 11, 03 pm, she left from Golden Time restaurant to go to her house. At Makeng village, three unidentified men in a Camry rode very close to her. They offered her a ride home, but they took from Kampot to Kep instead, where all 3 of them raped her (some reports say only 2 of the men raped her). At 05:45 am, they took her back to Kampot and dropped her off at Durian roundabout in the city.

According to questioning, the victim told the police where she got raped and where the suspects dropped her off. The police checked the CCTV security cameras where she said it happened, but they didn't find any evidence to back up what the victim told them (she also wasn't very certain where it happened). The policehe police want her to show where she got raped, she said that she forgot. The police said this had unclear information and very little evidence to investigate.

So far it does not sound like she has stated what nationality the men were or what language they spoke. Also, an article from the Khmer Times:

Frizzie77 is not victim blaming. He's stating the bleedin obvious! If you are out alone at 3 am and a woman, there is a risk that something untoward might occur. It's the sad truth.
...They offered her a ride home, but they took from Kampot to Kep instead
It also doesn't help if you get into a car in the middle of the night with 3 unknown men......

Well, that sounds like victim blaming to me.

"When she was near the Kampong Bay Bridge the three suspects in a Toyota Camry came really close to her Then they got out and grabbed her and dragged her into the vehicle."
