Accused madame calls cops extortionists

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday heard the case of a female massage parlor owner charged with providing accommodations for prostitution, court officials said. At the hearing, defendant Kouch Sokleng, 34, said that she had specifically told her workers not to have sex with patrons. She said that a client who had come in with a condom called the police, who tried to extort $200 a month in exchange for letting her off. Three workers who testified supported the owner’s claim that they never had sex with clients. The verdict will be issued on July 20.
