Porn charges: Blackmailed by jilted lover

Porn charges: Blackmailed by jilted lover

A man was charged with producing pornography after he allegedly took nude photographs of his girlfriend and threatened to post them on the internet, police said yesterday.

Provincial police said Ngen Kumpheak, 26, was charged on Saturday following a complaint from the parents of his former girlfriend, with whom he had been secretly involved.  

Yi Sokha, director of the province’s anti-human trafficking unit, said the man had taken the photos and threatened his 21-year-old former girlfriend in an attempt to stop her from marrying another man.

Yi Sokha said the suspect asked the woman to meet for one last encounter on November 17, promising to return a necklace. When she arrived at the guesthouse, he forced her to undress, took photographs and told her he would put them on the internet if she became engaged to another man.

Ngen Kumpheak confessed the allegations were true, Yi Sokha said.
