LICHADO Official Beaten by Cambodia’s Security Forces During Land Protest

On Monday Oct 10, 2016, Doun Penh district security forces attacked the demonstrators who carried lotus flowers, banged drums, waived the national flag and unfurled banners demanding a fair solution to a land-grab dispute.


Protestors and human rights observers told RFA’s Khmer Service the attacks were a surprise. Am Sam Ath, a senior coordinator for the rights group LICADHO, was monitoring the event when he was severely beaten, suffering blows to the face, neck and head. Photo: RFA/Khmer Service
