Man Tortures Wife for Decade

via CAAI News Media


Meas Kunthy, the owner of a restaurant in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, is currently behind bars and awaiting prosecution for brutal domestic violence against his wife.

Kunthy´s wife claims that she had been sexually, mentally and physically tortured by her husband since their marriage in 2000, but she thought it was normal and was too frightened to say or do anything about it.

The victim says she is relieved Kunthy is in prison as he had been threatening to kill her and her parents.

In a 2005 study in Cambodia, one-quarter of female respondents reported suffering violence at the hands of their husbands.
