Man and his Car beaten badly #PublicJustice

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.

That was a crazy beating and I don't think it can be justified. Stopping him and giving him a few slaps while waiting for the police sounds reasonable, but stoving in his head is just savage. I understand the catch 22, but who says the mob will be calm if you do stop, especially if you believe the accident was not your fault? According to the PPP article, it was the fact that he disagreed that he was responsible that whipped the mob to a frenzy - where do you go from there?

The only way to change things is to apply the law equally, but since that's about as likely as HE quietly stepping down later this year, mob rule will continue.

Just out of interest, when the Swiss teacher failed to stop after an accident a few months ago and was eventually chased down, what saved his ass? Was it the fact he hadn't injured someone? Just shows how unjust mob rule is.
I'll just assume you are not from Libya.

Mobs are inspirational and usually started by dumbasses.

How people get out of it is quite a big deal. It's called survival of the fittest.

The End
So blunt, so quirky, so witty, so insightful. I'll assume you couldn't find Libya on a map and certainly have never travelled there. It has one of the highest rates of fatalities per 100,000 inhabitants in the world - about 5 times higher than Cambodia and I never heard of mob justice resulting from an accident while I was there.
If you are female I will let you mob me ... depending.

It looked like the guy in the blue/yellow shirt with the tactical-style belt smacked him a few times and then grabs a rock that's just whacked the driver in the head and whacks him in the arm/head with it. Smacking someone around is one thing but this was particularly brutal.
He looked like a teenager in the video, I'm surprised he's old enough to be a competent member of the sangkat police.

They say that he is Pheach Kimhak, a former Duan Penh District Security Officer.

Mob beating victim seeks compensation
Buth Reaksmey Kongkea / Khmer Times

A defence lawyer for the university professor who was severely beaten by an angry mob on Sunday after fleeing from multiple hit-and-run accidents has filed a lawsuit seeking $300,000 in compensation from the suspects.

The mob beating took place on Sunday afternoon at about 3pm in Tuol Kork district’s Toek La’ak II commune.

Kong Chantha, a traffic police officer with Phnom Penh municipal police, identified the victim as Suy Samreth, a professor at the University of Cambodia.

He said Mr Samreth was driving his car alone along National Road 5 in Russey Keo district on Sunday when he hit a motorbike and seriously injured its driver.

After the accident, Mr Samreth fled into the city. The professor proceeded to crash into two more motorbikes near Depo Market in Tuol Kork district.

Angry motorists, who saw the accident, drove their motorbikes in pursuit of Mr Samreth and finally stopped him near Preah Kossamak Hospital in Toek La’ak III commune.

They proceeded to severely beat Mr Samreth, who has now been hospitalised in Vietnam.

Chhy Sambath, Mr Samreth’s lawyer, submitted a lawsuit to the municipal court on Mnday, which was obtained yesterday.

In the lawsuit, Mr Sambath claims his client had a collision with a drunk man on a motorbike, after which people accused him of killing the driver.

“He was afraid that he would be beaten by crowd of people,” the claim said. “So he decided to flee.”

Mr Sambath said his client was flustered and as he fled slightly hit another motorist, whom he tried to help afterwards.

But an angry mob who was chasing him intervened and began beating him, he added.

“They wanted to kill him,” he said in the claim. “After beating him unconsciousness, they destroyed his vehicle.”

Mr Sambath added that some suspects also robbed his client of money and possessions, worth at least $3,000.

“To find justice for my client, I would like to ask for a full investigation and the arrest of those people to be punished by laws so that they cannot repeat such cruel acts against anyone else,” he said. “I would also like to demand a total of $300,000 from them in compensation for the injuries suffered and damaged caused to the vehicle.”

The Daun Penh district office yesterday issued a statement distancing itself from one of the suspected perpetrators, a former Daun Penh security officer named Pheach Kimhak.

“The Daun Penh administration does not support such violence and appeals to the competent authorities to arrest the perpetrator for legal punishment,” the statement said.

Phnom Penh police chief General Chuon Sovann said officers have not yet been able to arrest the main perpetrators of the beating, but are working on the case.

Time for the guys whose motorcycles were damaged to file a $300,000 counter-suit

This is a criminal case, not a civil case, you don't sue, it goes to court automatically, doesn't it?
