Police have arrested a Turkish man and the two Cambodian women who allegedly procured teenage prostitutes for him after he brought two 14-year-olds into a guesthouse.
Anti-human trafficking police arrested Turkish national Andyin Goktepe, 59, and Cambodian citizens Doeung Srey Neth, 22, and Saing Thoeun, 53, on Wednesday night.
The three were arrested after police raided the Malis guesthouse in Wat Phnom commune, said Keo Thea, chief of the municipal Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Unit.
“[Goktepe] had brought two underage girls to a guesthouse” for sex, Thea said. “The two Cambodian women are sex-trafficking brokers.”
Srey Neth and Thoeun are charged with procuring child prostitutes, and Goktepe is charged with purchasing child prostitution, Thea said. If convicted, they could each receive five to 15 years in prison.
The three are to appear in Phnom Penh Municipal Court today.
