Bov Srey Sros, who is discarried in clash between authority and Boeng Kok residents, is speaking in news conference held Thursday in Boeng Kok complaining that she has been insulted by the police commissioner
PHNOM PENH (Cambodia Herald) - Phnom Penh Police Commissioner Phoung Malai dismissed Thursday a newspaper report that he had insulted a woman who reportedly suffered a miscarriage during a clash with police.
On Wednesday, the Khmer-language edition of the Phnom Penh Post quoted Phoung Malai as asking "was the victim woman young or old? Does she want to sue me to get her baby back. If she wants her baby back, I'm still young."
In rejecting the report, Phoung Malai said he was "not so silly to use such language," he said.
The woman, who identified herself as Bov Srey Sros, meanwhile held a news conference Thursday to complain that she'd been insulted by the commissioner. She urged First Lady Bun Rany Hun Sen to help reduce violence against women.
It was not immediately clear why the woman attended the protest while pregnant.
