2 Found Guilty of Sex Trafficking Deaf Girl

Post by General Mackevili » Fri Aug 29, 2014 11:18 pm

Two people were found guilty of trafficking a 13-year-old deaf and mute girl into a brothel and handed 15-year jail sentences at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Thursday.

Em Sophea, 44, and Lonh Chan, 28, were both sentenced to a decade and a half in prison for selling the girl to a brothel in Phnom Penh’s Chamkar Mon district, where she claims she was forced to have sex with multiple men in June 2013 before managing to escape.

The two were each ordered to pay 4 million riel, about $1,000, to the victim.

They were arrested in July 2013 after police received a complaint from Sok Phalla, executive director of the NGO New Hope for Cambodian Children, who had provided shelter for the girl, who was HIV-positive, after her parents died of AIDS.

The girl had gone missing while visiting a friend in Phnom Penh.

Ms. Sophea, who claimed in February that she was gambling at NagaWorld casino at the time of the crime, maintained her innocence after the verdict was handed down on Thursday.

“How many years am I jailed?” she asked. “Why don’t you.....

So this kid is deaf/mute, gets sold into sex slavery, where she acquires HIV, and becomes orphaned - and the courts award her $2,000?

The courts seem to be taking these cases more serious then before.

I didn't read the article but given the girls parents died of aids it's more than possible this girl was born with hiv or contracted it whilst breast feeding.

Sure:
They were arrested in July 2013 after police received a complaint from Sok Phalla, executive director of the NGO New Hope for Cambodian Children, who had provided shelter for the girl, who was HIV-positive, after her parents died of AIDS.
theGeneral makes a valid point though, she may have been born with it.

You drunk?

You claimed she was infected whilst working as a sex slave. I asked for your source on that and all you did was quote an article that said she was hiv positive.

Please back up your previous statement about being infected on the job.

If Somaly taught us something is that lies cheapen the whole issue.

I think it's a step in the right direction that the smugglers have been prosecuted but I fear this is the exception rather than the norm.

Not drunk, but I am unwell.

I thought in my previous post I backed away from that adequately enough by admitting that theGeneral may have had the truth of it, but if it's important to you - I recant the part of my comment about her contracting HIV as a sex slave. Not sure why you're reading an easy mistake as a lie, but hopefully you're happy now.
