Frenchman faces child sexual abuse charges involving six underage boys

Phnom Penh: On 11th September 2021, the Phnom Penh Municipal Court charged a French national, 56, from Vierzon with Indecent Acts against Minor under 15 Years and Sexual Intercourse with Minor under Fifteen Years, Article 43 & 42 of the Law on Suppression of Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation for alleged sexual abuse of 6 boys aged between 08 and 15 years.

The Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection police of the Interior Ministry began to investigate the alleged abuse by the Frenchman in June this year after they received a tip-off from APLE’s child protection worker. At least, 6 boys were initially identified by the police and confirmed multiple sexual acts perpetrated by the Frenchman who was self-employed and provided free English classes to numerous children at his rented house in Toul Sangke commune, Russey Keo district. More children are being identified by the police.

According to the investigation, the Frenchman often invited children from the neighbourhood to his house where he would teach them English and entertain them with food, computer games and movies. He also lured some of his victims and their families with money and expensive gifts.       

APLE has provided immediate psychological supports to the affected children and their families during the course of police investigation and is currently working with its aftercare partner to ensure their safety and access to appropriate services.
