Escort hoax-Stars press for action

IENG Sithul, director of the Khmer Artist Association, which represents actors and singers, called on authorities to pursue the individuals who purported to manage escort services with celebrities. Movie star Doun Zorida, who also presents an entertainment show on TV5, said she has asked all female film stars whose names allegedly showed up on escort service lists in high-end nightclubs to band together to press authorities to pursue the case. "We want to make it clear that the bodies of Cambodian actresses are not for sale. If we can find out who did it, we don't want (financial) compensation or to punish them; we just want them to publicly apologise to all Cambodian actresses." Phnom Penh police Chief Touch Naruth said he had "heard about the case but had not received an official complaint yet" from the actresses. He said police had searched clubs but could not find any evidence of the scam."We need the actresses to come to us with the evidence - the places where they saw the photo. We need evidence to make arrests," he said.
