Stone thrower released, mother vows treatment

The 31-year-old man who was detained for throwing stones at Prime Minister HE’s residence has been released after it was confirmed that he suffered from a mental disorder, according to his mother, Hean Teang.

She said: “He was released by the police. They accepted that he suffered from an illness after we provided them with a letter from a certified psychiatrist and our village and commune chiefs.

“We are grateful for his release, and now we have the opportunity to treat my son. If we ignore him any longer, his illness will intensify.”

Daun Penh district police detained the man for questioning on Wednesday after he lobbed stones at the Prime Minister’s residence near Independence Monument in the capital’s Chaktomuk commune.

Teang said her son had attempted to meet HE on several occasions but was refused access by the Prime Minister’s security.

“He said he wanted to meet with Samdech [HE] because he thought HE was a god. He said that the only man he [wished] to meet was Samdech,” she said.

She also expressed remorse over her son’s actions and said she would take him to the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital to treat his disorder. ... -treatment
