Cambodian Singer on Child Sex Offence Charges

Yesterday, the Phnom Penh Municipal Court heard the case of famous Cambodian singer Chanta S., charged with Procurement of Child Prostitution and Unlawful Removal of a Minor with Purpose. She is accused of bringing a 14-year-old girl to a man for sexual purposes in exchange for money.

APLE’s 3 month long investigation into this, executed by APLE’s child protection team, after receiving complaints received from the child’s parents, eventually triggered legal action by the Police. The anti-human trafficking police arrested the 36-year-old karaoke star at beginning of this year in her premises.

The minor explained to police how she was groomed by the accused, who tricked her, by promising, she’d become a famous singer, after she had sex with Chanta S’s clients.

After yesterday’s unfinished hearing, the victim is scheduled to testify about her suffering in court at a later date.
