Carnage on Monivong: accident causes 3 dead and 6 injured

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.

Hit and run driver who killed three sentenced
2 Feburary 2018
A man who killed three people in a hit-and-run crash last March – and then was beaten into a coma by a mob – was sentenced to three years in prison yesterday.
Phnom Penh Municipal Court Judge Nou Veasna also ordered Meas Sokheng, 30, to pay a $2,500 fine and $40,000 to the families of the three dead and one of the injured.
Three years is the maximum sentence for Sokheng’s charges, although Veasna suspended one year of the sentence. Sokheng has already spent 10 months in prison.

Sokheng was charged last year with “careless driving” after he tried to flee a minor collision and knocked over several motorcyclists as he sped the wrong way up Monivong Boulevard, killing a family of three and injuring eight more.

A mob, captured on video, quickly caught up to and brutally beat Sokheng into a coma and tried to set his car on fire.

At his trial in December, Sokheng appeared to have cognitive difficulties and was unable to recall even basic information such as his date of birth and where he lives...

I would class him as being ''normal ''
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.

fuck arresting him should have let the crowd finish him off the cunt
RIP
I hope this was sarcasm :facepalm: One of the reason these "i hit one car little -> panic -> i try escape and then accidentally hit more people" things happens because of this "beat the the guy who crashed" attitude in Cambodia. I just wish you never accidentally hit anyone when driving out there.

what is in the khmers ( and thai's as well) make up that makes them always want to attack people? Sure he fucked up, but....

Is it cause they know that justice will NOT be given?
Yep, so they say. So they want to give justice themselves.
Never heard of anyone beat for a minor accident here. It seems to happen to those who are driving recklessly and injure others and flee.
