In Brief: Human trafficking ignored by courts

Some 141

human trafficking cases were reported last year, but only 15 were heard

by the courts, according to a new report by the Cambodian National

Council for Women. The group said the lack of prosecutions was partly

due to limited knowledge of a new law introduced last year to combat

trafficking and sex crimes. It said 172 suspects were arrested in 117

cases, but the courts had to date heard just 15 cases.
