Child rape alleged: Cops doubt pimping accusations

A mother was arrested for allegedly pimping her 9-year-old daughter to a Vietnamese man in Kampong Cham town on Monday.

The girl’s grandmother, 51, filed a complaint with Kampong Cham police on Sunday, saying her daughter-in-law, a 34-year-old beer promoter, allowed a 34-year-old man to rape her daughter, deputy provincial police chief Iem Vanny said.

However, since police arrested the pair on Monday, the investigation hasn’t validated the claims.

“A medical examination showed the girl was not raped, as she remains a virgin. What the girl claimed is not believable either,” said Vanny, adding that revenge could be behind the accusation.

The girl was being raised by her grandmother after her parents were jailed for dealing drugs, but the daughter paid her mother a visit following her release.

Hang Vannthon, deputy police chief of Kampong Cham town, said the pair was questioned yesterday and would be questioned again today.
