A man who attempted to rob a police officer of his motorbike was beaten to death by a mob of villagers in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district on Friday, provincial police said yesterday, adding that no suspect had so far been identified.

According to district police chief Seng Socheat, a police officer identified as 33-year-old Chhay Sina was riding his motorbike alone – wearing his police uniform – in Prek Koy commune’s Svay Tany village on Friday when four men on two motorbikes yelled at him, demanding he stop.

Sina refused and shouted for help, quickly gathering a crowd of villagers who caught up with two of the four robbers and severely beat them before handing them over to the police. One of the robbers, Chamroeun Seyha, 26, died in the hospital after succumbing to his injuries.

Chao Vuthy, director of the Kandal provincial crime office, yesterday said authorities “had not identified the real suspects” in the beating, but added that he was “working on the case very attentively”...

There's a whiff of retribution in this case. Maybe the foursome are loathed by villagers and they saw their chance.

Locals Say Police, Not Mob, Left Man Dead

by Khy Sovuthy and Matt Surrusco | October 25, 2016

Prek Koy Commune, Kandal province – Police are still standing by their story that a mob of villagers beat two men during a roadside confrontation on Friday, causing one of them to die. But locals say that police delivered the beating in the first place, and that it wasn’t until the men were detained in the local police station that serious injuries were inflicted.

Tith Leap, 22, said he and his brother-in-law Chamroeun Seyha, 26, were beaten by multiple officers while detained at the Sa’ang district police headquarters on Friday night after they were involved in an altercation on National Road 21 with district police officer Chhay Sina, who later had them arrested.

This tale smelled very fishy from the first report - is it remotely possible that the police broke the law and - somehow or other - ended
up killing someone?

Kandal cops on the lam after fatal beating

Tue, 25 October 2016
Kim Sarom

Three police officers have been implicated in the murder of a man in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district on Friday, contradicting an earlier claim that the man had been fatally beaten by a mob after attempting to steal one of the officers’ motorbikes.

The three police officers are now at large, a police official said yesterday, with the victim’s family maintaining that no robbery had even taken place.

Family plans petition amid beating inquiry

The family of a man allegedly beaten to death in police custody in Kandal’s Sa’ang district on October 21 has collected thumbprints from nearly 100 fellow villagers for a petition seeking justice from “other institutions” should current investigations prove unsatisfactory.

“We have collected about a hundred thumbprints [in the past few days] . . . We will consider whether to collect more after we see the result of the investigation by the court and the provincial police,” said the deceased’s father-in-law, Mom Kry, adding that no police officer had enquired about the murder since the funeral.

Chamroeun Seyha, 26, was allegedly beaten to death by three police officers after being mistaken for a robber and hauled in with four friends by district police officer Chhay Sina, 33 – a claim backed by accounts from witnesses and a survivor – despite authorities initially laying the blame on a mob of villagers...
