Under-age girls freed in massage parlour bust

Anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection police raided a massage parlour on Monday that allegedly doubled as a brothel, rescuing several under-age girls and arresting two managers, police said.

Chief of Phnom Penh’s anti-trafficking task force Lieutenant Colonel Keo Thea said Ing Vuthy and his Vietnamese wife, Taing Thimi, were arrested during a raid on the Yang Me Massage Shop in the capital’s Daun Penh district on Monday afternoon.

He confirmed that 15 women between the ages of 14 and 20 were removed and taken to the Ministry of Social Affairs rehabilitation centre.

“Ing Vuthy and Taing Thimi were arrested because they had provided illegal sexual services in their shop,” the chief said. “They ... will be sent to court for their charges on Wednesday.”
