Nine Chinese men arrested in Cambodia for online child sexual exploitation

Nine Chinese men were arrested last week in Siem Reap, Cambodia for trading large scale pornographic materials of children. The men were arrested during raids on guesthouse rooms and rental houses at three different locations in Siem Reap’s  Svay Dangkum and Slakram communes. The provincial immigration police department also took part in the raids because the case involved foreign nationals.

Terre des Hommes and local partner APLE acquired dozens of explicit images from the police which they will send to cybercrime to coordinate further investigations with Interpol.

Online child sexual exploitation (OCSE) continues to spread in Cambodia and Terre des Hommes is working very closely with the Ministry of Social Affairs / Cambodia National Committee for Children to conduct a national Situation Analysis on OCSE that should result in the development of a national action plan that will address issues around OCSE.

OCSE is a form of  exploitation and child sexual abuse that occurs on ICT platforms, such as websites and other online platforms, phones, and mobile apps and includes production, possession and distribution of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) online; grooming of potential child victims online with the intention of sexual exploitation; live streaming of child sexual exploitation and abuse and corruption of children, involving adults or other children exposing children to pornography online, and sexual extortion of children.
