Expat detained
An American doctor has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing two teenage boys.

The United States citizen was arrested in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district at 9:30am on Friday, said Keo Thea, director of the capital’s anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection police, yesterday.

He said that the suspect had been detained by police and was being questioned regarding the purchase of child prostitution services in Cambodia.

The man was also sent to court to face further questioning yesterday.

“I expect that he will be charged by the municipal court on Monday,” he said.

The American, he added, had been arrested following contact with the FBI and a search had been conducted of his home. A computer was seized during the raid.

“According to our investigations, he is a person who preferred to have sex with boys and young people,” he said.
