FROM THE AIM RESCUE TEAM DIRECTOR:
At 4pm on Wednesday, 17th February, the Municipal Anti Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Police together with AIM Rescue Team executed a raid on a brothel fronting as a Vietnamese café in the Toul Kork area of Phnom Penh. Prior undercover investigation showed that 3 minors were being held and sold for sex inside the café to between 15-20 buyers per day. All 3 were rescued and are currently receiving aftercare with an NGO partner. Two suspected traffickers were arrested (husband and wife) and have been charged with child sex trafficking related offenses. Both are currently in prison awaiting trial. The AIM Rescue Legal Team will represent the victims throughout the legal process.
