Monks charged in rape of two schoolgirls

KANDAL provincial court yesterday charged two 15-year-old novice monks with raping two 6-year-old schoolgirls, deputy prosecutor Vong Bunvisoth said. Kea Sophal, a lawyer for the victims provided by the rights group Adhoc, said the suspects – Thy Dina and Kuy Kimhong – faced prison terms of between 15 and 20 years. Police said on Sunday that the two girls were raped on Wednesday morning of last week after the novice monks lured them into a generator room by promising them packages of noodles.
