Four garment workers have filed a police complaint accusing their Chinese supervisor of sexual harassment.
The alleged attacks took place at a factory in Prey Lovea village in Por Senchey district.
Por Senchey district police chief Yim Sarann wrote on Facebook: “The Chinese supervisor allegedly committed sexual harassment at work and tried to rape the garment workers when they entered the bathroom.
“Police received a complaint from four victims on Friday. There were many more victims who did not file a complaint.”
Mr Sarann identified the suspect as Jin Xoun Ding, 52. He said Mr Jin repeatedly invited garment workers to sleep with him for $100 but was rejected.
The officer said Mr Jin’s actions degraded the honour and dignity of Cambodian women.
Mr Jin tried to get the matter settled privately but police managed to send the case to court.
Contacted by phone, Mr Sarann said: “The suspect confessed to touching the ladies, but not to the level of sexual harassment.
“He said he did not attempt to rape them, but the four victims pointed the finger at him for committing all these offences.”
