Pedo on new charges in Siem Reap

A Dutch man who was released on bail after being convicted of sex crimes two years ago has been charged in a new case alleging he recently sexually abused two boys, age 6 and 9.

Sebastian Reuiji, 40, will be detained at Siem Reap’s provincial prison, said Duong Thavry, chief of the provincial Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Unit.

“[Reuiji] was charged with indecent acts against a minor under the age of 15,” Thavry said. Officers from the unit arrested Reuiji in his Siem Reap rental house on Wednesday, after receiving complaints of sexual abuse from the victims, Thavry added.

In October 2011, Reuiji was convicted of sexually abusing five children between the ages of 7 and 13 in Siem Reap, Thavry added. The court sentenced him to three months in prison, but he was released on bail.

Samneang Seila, from NGO Action Pour Les Enfants , said Reuiji should be deported.

“He is a dangerous person.”
