Theft after sex
Three men accused of hiring the services of four different prostitutes and robbing them after sex will be sent to the Battambang Provincial Court today to be charged after police arrested them on Tuesday.

Chet Vanny, deputy provincial police chief, said the three suspects – Sun Chamnab, 27, Sok Ratana, 23, and Eng Ty, 27 – would hire a prostitute and have sex with her at a guesthouse.

When they were done, they would threaten the woman with a fake gun and rob her, said Vanny, who added that they have robbed four women so far.

Their most recent victim in Battambang town had her “money, phone, necklace, ring and motorbike stolen”, said Vanny.

He added that the men has confessed to the crime and said they had done it four times.

Heng Sayhong, Battambang provincial monitor for human rights group Licadho, said he has received many complaints about these men.

He said: “These women are being sexually exploited, and we will intervene for them as well.”
