Four underage girls were rescued in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh from the hands of a 69-year-old British child sex tourist during a raid on his apartment. The man could be arrested, thanks to the help of Terre des Hommes’ partner Action pour les Enfants (APLE).

Sexual exploitation

The police seized two computers, a hard drive, condoms and sex toys. According to the police, it concerns a retired doctor.

Terre des Hommes partner assists in police investigation

In February of this year, an informant notified Terre des Hommes’ partner APLE of the child abuse. APLE passed this information on to the local police, and assisted in the investigation and in the identification of the man’s victims.

Paying for sex with children

According to the police, the man gave money to children on a regular basis; the amounts ranged from USD 20 to USD 200. The man is charged with sexual abuse of children for money. If found guilty, he may be sentenced to 7-15 years in prison. A 31-year-old woman has also been indicted on a charge of offering children to the British child sex tourist.
