Alleged pimp charged

Police from Phnom Penh’s anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection office sent a Vietnamese woman to municipal court yesterday on charges of pimping nine other Vietnamese women, six of them under 17 years old.

Keo Thea, the office’s director, said that Rin Thiyong, 31, confined the nine victims in a house and forced them to have sex with customers.

“We investigated this case for nearly three months before Friday’s arrest,” he said.

If convicted, she will face a five to eight year sentence.  

The anti-human trafficking office also sent two Vietnamese pimps to investigation by municipal police yesterday following their arrest while allegedly bringing two girls to customers at a Phnom Penh hotel on Friday.

“We found four girls prepared to offer sexual services already at the hotel,” Ten Borany, deputy director of the Mistry of Interior’s anti-human trafficking department, said.

The two suspects, Chum Sreymuch, 28, and Tith Hun, 47, admitted that they had worked as procurers twice this year, he said.
