Massage shop's owner arrested for human trafficking

A massage shop owner in Phnom Penh was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly pimping her workers, anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection, officers said yesterday.

Srey Mom, 24, was accused of human trafficking, according to Phat Phalla, an anti-human trafficking official.

Four of her workers arrested in the sting operation were sent to the Ministry of Social Affairs for questioning and re-education.

“The sex trade at the massage shops is hard to investigate, because it is not done openly,” Phalla said.

Surveillance of the shop lasted 11 days before anti-trafficking forces moved in, Phalla said.

He noted that the raid took place on Tuesday night in Chamkarmon district’s Boeung Trabek commune.

Mom will be sent to court today to be charged.
