Ten men arrested for child sex exploitation

Ten men were arrested on Tuesday in Phnom Penh’s Chbar Ampov district for allegedly sexually exploiting women and children in China, the National Police website said.

National Police deputy chief of immigration Chul Chek said police conducted two raids in the district’s Niroth commune in which the 10 Chinese nationals were arrested.

Commune police chief Heng Sovandara said the men were renting two homes in the commune.

The Ministry of Interior’s General Department of Immigration chief of investigations, Uk Hei Seila, said Chinese police informed local police about the men’s activities and asked for assistance.

“The police in China requested our help and cooperation as the victims were also believed to be Chinese nationals living in China,” he said.
