Women jailed for hiring out girls to rich clients

Two women were sentenced to prison after being convicted at Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday of procuring two girls, one as young as 16, for prostitution between 2011 and 2012. Presiding judge Chaing Sinath said Tith Phon, 47, and Chea Kimyenh, 32, were arrested based on the complaint of the two girls, who claim they were brought to have sex with rich male clients for money in exchange for commission. Phon was sentenced to five years in prison while Kimyenh has been sentenced to two years, with all but nine months of it suspended. Neither the two accused women nor their defence lawyers could be reached for comment yesterday.
