Sex charges: ‘Broker’ in court over teen case

A Vietnamese woman was charged yesterday over allegations that she supplied a teenager, also from Vietnam, to be used as a prostitute by Chinese businessmen in hotels in Phnom Penh.

Chea Meth, vice prosecutor at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, said 25-year-old Le Thiyim, a massage parlour worker, was charged with “procurement
of prostitution”.

“Her case now has been sent to investigative judge for further decision,” he said yesterday.

Thiyim was arrested at her rental house in Daun Penh district’s Phsar Thmey II commune on Sunday, according to the chief of Phnom Penh’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Unit, Lieutenant Colonel Keo Thea.

“She was a broker. She brought a Vietnamese girl aged 14 to have sex with Chinese men in hotels in Phnom Penh in exchange for getting commissions,” he said.

He added that – following questioning of the victim earlier this month – police understand that the girl was paid $100 per encounter, half of which went to Thiyim.
