Abuse of minor: Frenchman gets 7 years for child sex

Abuse of minor
A French national was sentenced to seven years in prison yesterday by the Preah Sihanouk provincial court after being found guilty of having sexual intercourse with a minor.

Juan Ordonez Camacho, 50, was arrested in January this year at a guesthouse by anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection police in Preah Sihanouk and initially charged with purchasing child prostitution and having intercourse with a minor. The prostitution charge was dropped yesterday by the court, said APLE country director Seila Samleang.

“He [Camacho] was ordered to leave the country after he gets out of prison,” he said. The victim’s attorney Noun Phanith sought US$10,000 compensation for her client, however none was awarded.
