Locals Beat & Tie Up Known Troublemaker

Phnom Penh: A man was beaten by locals and handed over to the police the night of August 6, 2021, along the riverside road in front of Wat Chas in Sangkat Chroy Changva, Khan Chroy Changva, Phnom Penh.

The man was named Nut Sitha, alias Mov, male, around 30 years old, currently living near the scene.

After educating and instructing him to return home, on the day of the incident, the man came back to upset the monks and the villagers again, holding a knife, threatening people and attempting to set fire to property. The local people then fought back, causing the man to be seriously injured, and tied him to a lamp post, then reported to the authorities to intervene. AREY

    Time to tighten the actions against drug addicts creating havoc in Cambodia. Lecturing and releasing these kind of addicts don’t work as we can see in this case.
    Hello “Human Rights” Activists, where are you to protect society when needed. You only appear when drug addicts are jailed etc. so now is your time to save society or else we will slip into the same rat hole like the Mexican Border to the US. For education go to the Philippines and learn how to cope.
