Domestic Violence: Two Step-Fathers Arrested for Raping their Step-Daughters

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

CEO News notes: Today's Khmer news carried two cases of step-fathers who raped their step-daughters. This can and does happen in any country, but these two cases are part of what appears to be an increasing trend in Cambodian domestic violence this year.

[Please note that this assumption of increasing domestic violence is solely a personal impression based on the increasing number of Khmer news reports of violence within families and between couples, and it is too soon to know if this impression will be confirmed by domestic violence statistics later.]
