Another KTV (karaoke business) operating as a brothel in Kampong Cham province has been shut down thanks to a month-long covert operation.
After confirming that minors were being sold for sex at the KTV, officers of the Kampong Cham Police and AIM SWAT conducted a raid on July 19th and rescued a 16 year old girl and 2 adult women. Following the search for and seizure of evidence, the KTV/brothel was officially closed by local authorities and the suspected trafficker was arrested.
During interviews with police, the girls shared that they were being sold for sex to the profit of the suspect who will await trial from prison for his child sex trafficking-related charges.
The 16-year-old is receivng care at a partner shelter and the 2 women were transferred to the local District Social Affairs Office, all of whom will be represented by our legal team throughout the coming court procedures.
