Provincial court hears pedophile’s case

The Banteay Meanchey provincial court yesterday tried accused Korean-Australian pedophile Charles Sohn, NGO officials said.

According to a release from the NGO Action Pour les Enfants, Sohn forced two girls, both under age 10, to perform sexual acts and took nude photos of them.

“Two neighbours got suspicious about the suspect taking one of the girls into his house, and opened the door [to find] Mr Sohn with his pants down,” the release read.

Juvenile protection police chief Sith Los said the verdict will be issued August 14.
