Battambang Province, Cambodia News: According to a law enforcement official, the investigating judge of Battambang provincial court is questioning a suspect on the afternoon of April 14, 2019, in the case of a rape committed in 2013.
The accused is named as Sok Pov, 25, from Bousak Village, Baksar Commune, Russei Kiri District, Battambang. He had returned to his home village to celebrate Khmer New Year, thinking that his case would be forgotten. He was charged with rape by the Battambang Public Prosecutor in March 2015, but fled to Thailand. He now faces charges almost 6 years after the alleged crime.

It's more than likely the rape victim has not forgotten the incident and recognized him when he returned to the village .
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Police do seem to be active and effective. They have raided many gambling dens in Sville, rounded up visa-less foreigners, broken up boiler room and romance scams, raided prostitution joints employing teenage girls, raided popular night (drug) clubs owned by kingpins, chased down the rich girl who killed the girl on a motorcycle, apprehended men who rape and murder upcountry. I'm probably forgetting a few other crimes but, all I can say is, well done.
