Cambodia's Virginity Trade Is On The Rise

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri May 27, 2016 5:37 pm

Court Ordered to Temporary Imprison a Mamasan Who Convinced Schoolgirls to Sell Their Virginity

Phnom Penh: According to Kampuchea Thmey Daily News, the judge of municipal court temporary imprisoned a woman who was accused of convincing young schoolgirls to sell their virginity. The trade normally took place at the hotel.

Anti-human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection said that in the evening on 26 June 2016, police cracked down on virginity trading related crimes when a woman was found brining some young schoolgirls to the hotel for their virginity trade business located in Chea Sim Blvd, Phnom Penh Thmey commune, Sen Sok district, Phnom Penh.

Police arrested a woman named Eng Bopha, 32 years old and saved four young schoolgirls whose age ranged from 17 to 23 years old. Police also confiscated $1,000 USD.

Police said, “They [saved victims] told police that they were brought to Cambodians who live abroad for the price ranging from $1,500 to $2,500. However, after they had slept with the customers, they only received $200."

The police added that, “The suspect confessed to committing the crime of human trafficking."

After questioning, the victims were sent to Social Ministry in Phnom Penh while the suspect was sent to court and later temporary imprisoned.

What makes you think it is "still on the rise"? I don't have the stats, but on casual observation it looks to be down in Cambodia in comparison to before.

And what race/ethnicity was the mama? This seems an important feature in many CEO news stories that is missing here.

The equation is quite simple really; More money = More honey. Asian styley.

Incidently, she doesn't look much of a king-pin if that's the only phone she's got.

Not sure. She does have suspiciously small eyes, but if the offender in Viet, that is almost always mentioned, even if she was caught jaywalking, which makes me think, maybe she is some other non-foreign ethnicity.

Also, a 23 year old schoolgirl?

I think the Cambodians are mystified by this whole barang age of consent thing. They probably have the mistaken idea that barang think a female is a child up to the age of 35.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

As I understand it (and I may well be quite wrong) the Letter of the Law is that it is permissible
for an over-18 to engage in hanky-panky with consenting young persons of 15, 16 and 17
PROVIDED THAT NO FINANCIAL INDUCEMENT* CHANGES HANDS - but that the
over-18s can strike whatever bargains they wish with other over-18s.

* But what does that mean? A restaurant meal, a new pair
of shoes, a new T-shirt or only plain hard cash?
