GIRL RAPED AFTER PORNOGRAPHY BINGE
Two 12-year-old boys have been accused of raping a 10-year-old Vietnamese girl living in Russey Keo district’s Svay Pak commune after watching pornography late last month. The girl’s parents filed a complaint to the local authorities immediately after finding out that she was raped on May 30. The two perpetrators confessed to police, saying that before raping the girl they watched pornography on a mobile phone. The police released the boys after “giving advice” to them, and said that since they were below the age of 14, they could not be charged. KOH SANTEPHEAP
