Undercover Cops Pose As Customers; Masseuses Caught "Red-Handed"

Couple arrested over secret brothel
January 10, 2019
Police have arrested a married couple who allegedly ran a massage shop offering sexual services in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district.

Major Sok Sothea, an officer with the Interior Ministry’s anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection department, yesterday identified the couple as Sok Ratana and his wife Duong Sreypov.

Maj Sothea said the couple was arrested on Tuesday at about 8pm after their massage parlour was raided by a prosecutor and district police.

“They operated a massage business for gentlemen who preferred getting massages in the city,” he said. “But they also operated an illegal prostitution shop hidden inside.”

“They allowed their masseuse, who were employed by the couple, to have sex with clients for about $20-$30 per session,” Maj Sothea added. “The couple took up to $10 from each masseuse.”

He noted that prior to the raid, anti-human trafficking police from the Interior Ministry sent two police officers in posing as businessmen in December.

Maj Sothea said based on the evidence collected by both of the officers, an arrest warrant for the couple was issued by the court.

“While we were raiding the shop, two of the masseuses were caught red handed having sex with customers,” he said. “They [clients, masseuses, owners] were arrested red-handed.”

Maj Sothea said a total of five masseuses were arrested and noted that two were underage. Police also confiscated a ledger, along with used and unused condoms from the shop.

Lieutenant General Pol Phiethey, chief of the anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection department, yesterday said the couple has been accused of procuring with aggravating circumstances and could face up to five years in jail if convicted.

Lt Gen Phiethey added that the couple is now detained at the Interior Ministry and will be sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Friday.

The five masseuses and the clients were sent to be re-educated before they were released.

I'd hate to be the one who had to collect the evidence.

So, in order to gather sufficient evidence, did the cops have to endure the attention all the way to a "happy end"?
