Pregnant woman accused of adultery
Pursat provincial police have arrested a woman, who is eight months pregnant, and accused her of adultery. The woman’s husband demanded that police arrest his allegedly wayward wife after he caught her in bed with another man, who is also reportedly married. Police said the woman confessed to having sex outside of marriage three times since September, saying that her fellow accused adulterer gave her food. The woman blamed her husband for drinking wine and not giving her enough money to feed her children.

Karaoke owners sing the blues
Two women who own a karaoke parlour in Svay Rieng province are accused of forcing their employees to have sex with customers. Their accuser says she came to the bar in Tachor village looking for her husband but took a job after she ran out of rent money. The accuser claims she tried to leave after she was harassed by clients. But the owners allegedly refused and demanded she pay US$10 in order to leave. She claims the owners locked her in a room before she escaped. A subsequent police raid on the parlour turned up another six girls in a similar predicament.
