Keo Tha, of Women Network Union, said: “This is the first time we will cooperate with each other to promote rights for sex workers.” Bith Kimhong, director of the Department of Anti-human Trafficking at the Ministry of Interior, said the government is trying to eliminate sex trafficking by increasing cooperation between victims and authorities, implementing tougher sentencing for offenders and setting up outreach programmes. “Some sex workers do not even know they are victims of trafficking.” he said.
