Looks like a land cruiser to me. How many taxi drivers drive them?

It wouldn't be surprising. In SHV and around, you need something solid to get through the shite roads, potholes, flood zones etc.

I am happy the outcome and the confessions - as the lady's evidence was looking somewhat shaky for a conviction (according to the press releases).

The boys CAN do a good job as we have seen time after time.

I sincerely hope the lady rebuilds her shattered life and manages to trust people again.

I am sure that 1. these 3 persons are not first offenders and 2. the victim was not a chance victim. As a rule, the later victim may already have been observed in the bar before, but at the latest at the entrance or off the ground to the path along the river to the bridge. Unfortunately, I do not know the local conditions such as public or private camera surveillance, video recordings in the bar and surrounding shops, since with great certainty at least one of the 3 people or just in the hours before something has shopped and certainly not have changed the clothes. Hardly any group spends hours in the car at night without being seen and recorded.

3. The vehicle itself, also here there are good starting points, because these perpetrators are certainly not driven for such a crime a hundred kilometers. The perpetrators should therefore within a radius of max. 100 KM to live. Other details and clues I leave out here and unfortunately I do not know the work and procedure of the Cambodian police, I hope that since the French Embassy seeks education and assistance and victim protection. For me this is a scandal - and of course that is certainly not conducive to a woman - alone and at night, no matter where in the world to be on the road - yet here are some comments so out of place that I'm really for such A (Beep ), ashamed!

I am glad that these 3 bastards could be arrested very quickly. I would really like to thank the Cambodian police for their swift action and expertise in this case. I will even prosecute this case in court.

Which comments in particular offended you please?

I am not a mod but I am sure people are interested in the specifics - myself included.

We can all learn.

Three men charged for gang-raping French tourist in Cambodia
By RFI Issued on 19-10-2019
A Cambodian court has charged three men with gang-raping a French tourist in the coastal province of Kampot after offering her a ride in their car, police said Saturday.

The victim, from Paris, told police she was walking home from a restaurant in Kampot last Friday when three local men pulled up alongside her just after 3am and offered her a lift back to her hotel.

The men allegedly pulled her into the car and drove to a remote location where they held her captive.

All three men then repeatedly raped her before driving her back, she said.

The men -- a 36-year-old taxi driver and two construction workers aged 19 and 23 -- "were charged with rape and placed in pre-trial detention on Friday evening," Kampot provincial police chief Mao Chanmathurith told the AFP news agency.

They could face up to 15 years in jail if convicted.

It hasn't been mentioned yet but..... most cases of rape here are rape-murder cases.
I wonder why they let her go after?
