Prison guard in child rape arrest

A prison guard was arrested yesterday morning on suspicion of raping a three-year-old girl while at work in Preah Sihanouk province.

Be Sivanna, police chief of the province’s anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection bureau, said yesterday that the 22-year-old provincial prison guard had been sent to his office for questioning.

The guard was arrested after the father of the girl  – a fellow guard – found his daughter and made a complaint.

The suspect was sheduled to be sent to a provincial court today.

Chiep Sotheary,  who is a coordinator for human rights group Adhoc, said yesterday the allegations were concerning.

She added that in the first four months of this year, Adhoc had dealt with two cases of rapes of underage girls and three cases of adult rape in Preah Sihanouk province.

Earlier this month, an 11-year-old girl was found raped and killed in Kampong Cham province. The girl had attended a dance in Sre Kchach village, Tamper commune, Dambae district.
