Six arrested in Preah Sihanouk over sexy leaflets

Preah Sihanouk provincial authorities on Sunday arrested six men for allegedly distributing leaflets in a public area that depicted sexual images to promote a massage parlour.

Preah Sihanouk town police chief Phul Phorsda said the six planned to operate an illegal business in Cambodia by opening a massage parlour that offers sexual services.

On the night of August 12, the Preah Sihanouk City police, with the help of the provincial police force, arrested the six and confiscated all the leaflets in their possession.

They were identified as Lu Jian, Fan Chao Jun, Wen Xiao Hu, Ly Yuhang, Li Zhu Zhi, and Li Ziming.

“The suspects, along with the evidence, were sent to the Preah Sihanouk provincial police station for questioning,” he said.

However, the case took a different turn during investigations.

After examining the leaflets that were written in the Chinese language, the officers discovered that the printed materials did not refer to any sexual services or prostitution, which is illegal in the Kingdom.

The police then released the suspects after they signed a document saying they will not engage in illicit activities in the country.
