In Cambodia’s prisons, pregnant women and young children are inmates

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.

In Cambodia’s prisons, pregnant women and young children are inmates

The Cambodian Daily

Held in pretrial detention, guards took Chamroeun to a hospital when she went into labour. After giving birth she remained there overnight. With potential medical complications, she says, she should have stayed longer, but the guards returned her to prison the next day when she could not pay a bribe. Chamroeun and her one-day-old baby spent the following night on the concrete floor of a prison cell.
