Five charged over sex toy distribution

Five Chinese nationals were charged yesterday with selling and distributing sex toys in Phnom Penh. Two women and three men were charged with the offence at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court following a raid on Monday on a Chinese shop in Veal Vong commune, in the capital’s Prampi Makara district.    During the raid, police seized 10 penis-shaped sex toys, two vagina toys, a sex doll and sex-related medicines. Pen Rath, deputy chief of the Phnom Penh police, said     the importation and sale of sex toys and products was banned in Cambodia because it could affect Cambodian culture and traditions. He said police would continue to crack down on such activities. “According to Cambodian law, if they are found guilty, they will be sentenced to at least   a week to a month in jail,”   Pen Rath said.
