Bunny Bar on Street 104 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia Raided by Police for Prostitution & Underage Staff

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Considering who owns most of these establishments i would think a mass closure is unlikely.

It's not illegal to employ minors in bar/hospitality here.

However, as we all know, to facilitate, enable, coerce or force somebody into sex work is illegal. Its made worse if that person is underage.

Interested to see what happens here.

Could establish a precedent that closes all bars and beer gardens and KTV joints in the whole country, lol.
How to fix Jerry?

A simple rule of no one under 18 working in a bar of any description? It would be a start, no?

An old pal of mine ran a regular bar (not Riverside). He had two staff in the kitchen who were under 18. They sometimes came front of house to serve food. But if you instigate 18+, these poor kids would be out of work.

Where do the authorities start?

I call you out

I am not an angel as anyone who knows me will agree - in fact i am an obnoxious twat but start a straw man and i call you out. the guy was caught fair and square being a ponce of a nonce. my argument is not with the best of CEO like rozzie and jamie and jb but with anyone who can defend what happened - sorry about that but all my friends in cambodia hate these people - no need arguments. i agree due process

I presume you mean me. Call me out all you want. I've never (nor will I) defend a nonce. I abhor them as much as you. Sadly there are some who will defend them. There is a process, it will be followed and we'll see what happens. Unfortunately, there is so much murk, that none of us really know everything. I'll stick to being an outsider looking in, and hope the authorities nail any f***er that exploits women or (especially) kids. The evidence will speak for itself when it becomes clear and available.

your post just says "trust the police, I'm 100% sure"
the officlal report has already changed in the space of a day, and is still vague

Yeah, I guess a solid work safe policy would be a start.

Personally, when I owned my bar, hiring minors was not considered.

I even balked at the teen kids of some customers hanging around too much without their folks around.

Call out YOU for a a start hey!!!

John Henry Carr, a 70-year-old Australian (bar owner), Shane Alan Robins, a 60-year-old British man (bar manager), and Cambodian Nop Ratana, a 29-year-old woman, girlfriend of the owner.)

The four suspects were arrested by the Ministry of Interior’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Department on August 26, 2019 in a crackdown on the BUNNY bar in the neighborhood of Wat Phnom, Daun Penh District, Phnom Penh.

During the search, the authorities rescued eight Cambodian women, including minors.

The crackdown came after reports from people living near the BUNNY bar were abusing children and engaging in sex trafficking.

Not in court for fuck all are they???

Get real

call me for what?
you seem quite sure they employed minors, from just the PPP report?
as i said, let's see
i find it unbelievable, but maybe i'm just naive
it seems sure they were offering "extras" on site, which is reason for a bust
i hear that was going on for years though, and no different to virtually every massage place
