General assaults worker for staring at him

General in custody for pistol-whipping man
Mech Dara | Publication date 30 April 2018 | 06:50 ICT
A brigadier general who allegedly pistol-whipped a man on the street for staring at him is behind bars after being charged with intentional violence on Saturday.

Suoy Samith, Boeung Keng Kang III commune police chief, said Brigadier General Pech Tonghang was sent to PJ Prison for allegedly assaulting a man on Tuesday.

Boht Khin San, the Chamkarmon district police chief, and Song Ly, Phnom Penh deputy police chief, declined to comment.

According to local media reports, Tonghang allegedly drove his car near a warehouse and loudly honked his horn, prompting the workers to stare at him. He then allegedly got out of his car, pulled out his gun and pistol-whipped a man on the head, supposedly for staring at him.

The victim reportedly received several stitches as a result of the injury, according to local media, with Tonghang allegedly offering him $4,000 to withdraw a complaint.

if in another 3rd world country, any general probably will have enough cloud to cover this up, but this is KOW, where everything is done half fucked, so a general rank is merely a major :D

The fact that he was sent to PJ Prison and not Prey Sar says a lot. That's where VIP prisoners get sent, the conditions are far better than CC1 (Prey Sar).
