Tourist arrested for sex pics

Siem Reap
Siem Reap police have arrested a Japanese tourist for photographing a Cambodian couple having sex in a rented room.

Sun Bunthong, deputy chief of the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit, said last week that a Siem Reap resident telephoned police to report that a 22-year-old Cambodian man and a 28-year-old Cambodian woman were going to “perform a sex act” for the tourist.

Police said the tourist, identified as Takayama Go, 28, and the unidentified couple were taken into custody, adding that the tourist claimed to have arranged the photo shoot for entry to the Angkor Photo Festival, which ended on Saturday.

“Takayama  said he hired the couple for US$40 to perform sex acts while he photographed them. We decided to detain him because we saw 78 photos of sex acts in his camera,” Sun Bunthong said.

“The police arrested them while the sex act was occurring, so we charged them with taking indecent photos and implementing a sex act,” said Siem Reap Provincial Court Judge Sok Leng.

Sok Leng added that he was unsure when the court would schedule a hearing.
