MOD officer throws wife and kids out on the street

22 April 2018
Phnom Penh: A mean-tempered army officer is arrested after mistreating his family.

The suspect is named Men Virak, a 32-year-old military officer with the rank of Lieutenant General of the Ministry of National Defense.

According to the wife's statement, she has been married to her husband since 2009 and they have two children, a boy and a girl. However, throughout their marriage, the husband has insulted and repeatedly harassed and used violence against her. She attempted to divorce him, but was unable to, and eventually she took the children back to live with their father.

On this occasion, on the night of April 20, the suspect came home dead drunk and in a mean mood. He insulted and raped his wife, then he locked his wife and children out of the house and threw their belongings out on the street.

Following a complaint by the woman, the police arrived and arrested the husband for acts of violence. He was taken down to the police station for questioning and charges.

Must be a very good soldier and pass all required courses to get promoted.

It's not as if he is a Star General or anything silly.

One would assume his dad is the star general.

Is it just me or does that ID look pretty sketchy? Besides the photo falling out it looks a bit copy-shop.

Yeah, I think anything printed more than about 10 years ago looks pretty fake. Maybe because quality has come a long way or something.
