Would the cops have intervened and arrested the doctor if the pregnant lady gone to them first?

This is Cambodia. Even the locals know the deck is stacked against them. They have to find ways to even the odds so justice can happen.

The next question is ...

How will the judge rule?

Or will it ever reach a judge?

[Mod edit: trolling] you might have seen the clinic had to pay the patient $400. Seems like a fair outcome.

Sorry, CEO Cambodia news didn’t mention the payment, only the accusation. No links to the original article or follow up. My apologies for not having access to the original sources as others have.

Was this a private settlement between the two or was it the court ruling he was guilty and ordering him to pay the fine?

So what happens in the West when a physician is convinced of a sexual assault in his own clinic? Does he only get a $400 fine?

I don't seek to enter into the above dispute, but this seems like a fair question.

It’s a serious offense, as is any sexual assault - they would lose their medical license at the very least.
