Underage girls rescue themselves from trafficking without NGO help.

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.

Underage girls rescue themselves from trafficking without NGO help.

Tough little girls. :thumb:
Three suspected human traffickers were arrested on Tuesday evening in a raid of their home that rescued 12 under-age girls who were to be sent to Thailand to work in massage parlors, according to the Deputy Chief of the Military Police’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection unit.

Major Duong Sokchea said the raid was carried out on a residence in Chroy Changvar’s Phum 3 district after a 15-year-old girl escaped and complained to police...

Khmer press reported this differently to Khmer Times and the daily.

Kampuchea Thmey and Koh Santepheap report the girl was being asked to 'massage' (ធ្វើសរស) a customer in Phnom Penh and she refused. She then phoned relatives who came to the villa in person to take her home. The boss refused to let her leave so the relative (Kampuchea Thmey report Aunt and an older sister, Koh Santepheap report Mum) phoned the authorities who raided the villa.
Kampuchea Thmey also report the girls were getting a monthly salary of 17,000KHR in addition to room and board and were being taught spa skills. They were all also in the middle of practicing manicures and pedicures when the authorities and media raided. No mention of Thailand.

Thanks Rama. Interesting how the story changes from paper to paper, a bit like a sort of Chinese whispers, where each adds their own little touch to the information given.

that sounds better, but I cannot believe that a 12 years girl get 170.000 riel per month in a massage place. The basic salary of the older girls is often not a lot more than it.

Looks like it was the Khmer media that got it wrong. The article from the CD is quite definite that this was a trafficking situation.
Military police have identified the suspected leader of what they believe to be a sex trafficking ring masquerading as a masseuse-training agency as a 40-year-old businesswoman with Cambodian and Thai citizenship who owns karaoke parlors in both countries...

...Military police were tipped off to the operation after a 15-year-old girl called a relative in Phnom Penh on Tuesday and related how her captors intended to send her to Thailand to work in a karaoke parlor.

Mr. Komon said the three detained suspects were being questioned on Thursday and would be sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court today to face charges of trafficking and unlawful detention.

It's quite normal for girls to learn spa and salon skills without being paid. Most schools operate like that, with apprentices not paying to learn, but working for free until they get good. Not saying it's right or wrong, this case is quite different.
