Frenchman JACQUES JACQUET Under Investigation in Siem Reap After Picking Up Underage Prostitute in Cheers Pub

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Mar 08, 2018 11:02 am

Posted in the Teachers in Siem Reap Group:

"Siem Reap French week has been rocked by news of a 70-year-old sex creep who has been preying on young girls in the tourist town.
The man’s latest victim was a 17-year-old girl who was dancing with her friend in popular Pub St venue Cheers.

It is understood that the man, Jacques Jacquet, encouraged the girl to drink and then started offering her money for sex. It is believed that the girl initially refused but that the man continued offering higher amounts until she conceded.

The girl, who had been in a steady relationship for the 18 months prior lost her partner and job which paid $650 a month, over the incident.

The girl is now working as a sex worker as she had no other income.

Mr Jacquet has continued to pay the girl for sex since the incident and has had the girl stay at his home.

The girl’s family are not aware that she lost her job and that she is now working as a prostitute.
The man had been in a long-time relationship with a Cambodian girl who is said to be devastated by the allegations.

However other well-known Siem Reap sex workers have been linked to the man.

The office of the Ambassador of France in Cambodia, Her Excellency Mrs Eva Nguyen Binh, is aware of the incident and is believed to be investigating.

One person close to the incident said the man had robbed the girl of her future.

“She had a job and a long-term partner one day and the next this monster harassed her into sex with his money and she has lost everything and has been forced to have sex with strangers for money.

“This man has ruined her life. “
Local police interviewed the man yesterday; however senior provincial police are expected to become involved in the case in coming days.

It is believed that Cheers, which has a reputation as sex haven for prostitutes, is also going to be subject to a serious investigation into why it is admitting people under the age of 18 into the venue. The investigation is also expected to cover whether the venue is providing a haven for sex workers.

Another Pub St venue is also believed to be part of the investigation.

Pub St has already undergone a major clean-up this year with the banning of street carts selling alcohol in the street.

This second stage of the clean-up has been prompted by the actions of Mr Jacquet who is said to be well known among the local French community and sex workers."

A 17 year old isn't a child prostitute.

This guy might be a sleazebag, but it's not fair to link him to paedophilia.

Agreed the age of consent is 15 in Cambodia however the law for having sex with a girl for payment in Cambodia is 18 below that she is legally considered a child

The age of consent between a foreigner and a Cambodian is actually 18, 15 between Cambodian and Cambodian... This is actually a written law.

The whole story in the OP just sounds fishy, too much just doesn't add up.

Cambodia's version of Indecent Proposal. Yeah, at best that story sounds more than a little convoluted.

She's probably already working out how much she's going to claim, egged on by others who will get a cut.

$650? IN her dreams.

Not that I wish to condemn women to a life of prostitution but losing your long term boyfriend at 17 is not the end of the world, really. Also, I too call BS on the $650 a month job, that's as much as a government official. They don't get fired for having side jobs. But yeah, no banging under-age chicks, that is a crime, the dirty old perv. If they're 18 they can fuck whoever they want for money.
