41-year-old American man was questioned Thursday by an investigating
judge at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on suspicion of purchasing
child sex. Bith Kimhong, the director of the Ministry of Interior's
Anti-human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Department, said the man
was arrested February 24 in Siem Reap. Bith Kimhong said the man was
being investigated for paying two boys - aged 13 and 14 - for sex in
Phnom Penh and was currently being held at Prey Sar prison in the
capital. The suspect's lawyer denied the charge.
