A Chinese man was arrested on May 10th by officers of the Phnom Penh police, with support from AIM SWAT, on suspicion of illegally having sex with a 14-year-old Cambodian girl. After this man had tricked her into having sex with him, the girl’s family filed an official complaint.
In an interview with the suspect, he admitted to having intercourse with the girl despite having a wife in China. He was then charged with unlawful intercourse with a minor and will await his trial from prison. Police suspect that he intended to traffick the girl back to China with him, but currently there isn’t sufficient evidence to proceed with that charge.
The girl has been returned home to her family, and our legal team will represent her and her family in the coming trial.
