Siblings allegedly ran coffee shop/brothel

A brother-sister duo was tried yesterday by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for pimping prostitutes at their coffee shop in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district.

Presiding Judge Duch Kimsorn said sister Ven Thi Yung, 31, and brother Ven Yang Doeuk, 30, were arrested last September for allegedly harbouring prostitutes – aged 16 to 17 – at their coffee shop, where the girls solicited customers.

Thi Yung denied the charges, saying she didn’t “know it was illegal to have those girls stay with me. I did not offer their sexual services or get any benefit from them.”

But the girls painted a different picture, saying customers would book sexual services with Thi Yung, to whom they paid a cut of their earnings.

A verdict will be announced March 6.
