Couple caged for running brothel

A husband and wife were given three-year jail sentences, with one year suspended at Phnom Penh Municipal court yesterday for running a brothel in a massage parlour. Say Thim, aged 26, and his wife Soeun Chenla, aged 25, were arrested during a shop raid in the capital’s Chamkarmon district in March, during which seven women were rescued. Say Thim’s father, 50-year-old Sum Neang, said following the verdict that the couple was innocent and they had only been staying with their cousin at the parlour while finding work in the capital.
