In Brief: Illegal nightclub owners sentenced

The

Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday sentenced the owner of the

Mikado Club to seven years in prison and its manager to eight years,

for aggravated procurement of prostitution. Sor Sarivoan, also known as

Jacki, 60, and his manager Pov Thoeun, known as David, 38, were

arrested in March 2008 in a police raid. Chou Bun Eng, a secretary of

state at the Ministry of Interior, told the Post: "I welcome the

conviction, but I am still concerned about their website, which shows

naked Cambodian girls. It impacts women's morality and must be banned."
