I don't believe that house is used much, at least I've never seen much activity around it, other than the usual handful of security. Try throwing stones at his house in Takmau and you might end up in a slight bit of bother. It's got a big military base protecting it.

Anyone know how His house is doing in Sihanoukville ? It's such a lovely location with view over the magnificent Occheuteal beach, surely nobody would any throw rocks there, or dare to vandalise the area by constructing ugly high rise buildings on the beachfront which would destroy the view and the peaceful environment there ? :wink:

Where are you seeing these shackles? They are sometimes used here but I can't see any in the pictures.

The poor man needs medical treatment, not prison, and as usual it will be his family that will suffer.

Man nabbed for throwing stone at PM’s house
Mech Dara | Publication date 09 January 2020 | 23:15 ICT

Daun Penh district police said on Thursday that the authorities are questioning a 31-year-old man who was arrested for throwing a stone at the house of Prime Minister HE in the capital’s Chaktomuk commune.

District police chief Tieng Chansa identified the man as Rom Piseth. He is said to have thrown the stone on Thursday morning.

“The authorities will take the necessary legal action against him,” said Chansa.

Lieutenant General Dy Vichea, National Police deputy chief and the Ministry of Interior’s central security department director, said the suspect is mentally ill.

He asked for money for treatment from his mother but she refused so he threw a stone at the Prime Minister’s house to ask HE to take him to the hospital, said Vichea.

However, Chaktomuk commune police chief Chuob Sokun rebuffed claims of mental illness, saying that the suspect is a teacher at the Mith Samlanh organisation.

“There is no document that proves he is mentally ill. That being said, I don’t know why he did that to the Prime Minister’s house,” said Sokun.

Piseth’s mother, Hean Tieng, said on Thursday that her son had suffered mental illness in 2017. He recovered the following year, which allowed him to return to work. But his illness recurred two months ago.

“He has a mental illness. He has been ill for two to three years but can function normally when he takes his medicine. But he has relapses from time to time.

“We have a medical certificate from the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital to prove this,” she said.

The authorities, she said,informed her that they will send Piseth to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.
