Minor jailed for sex sale

A 17-YEAR-OLD boy was sentenced to two years in prison at Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday for procuring sexual services. Horm Siev Fy, a local high school student, was arrested in December while allegedly bringing three women from Hun Sen Park in Chamkarmon district to a nearby guesthouse to have sex with clients, judge Chey Sovann said. “Based on the police report and the testimony of the suspect, he was found guilty because he really brought many women from parks and the riverside to sleep with guests at hotels and guesthouses prior to his arrest,” Chey Sovann said. Horm Siev Fy declined to comment yesterday.
