FROM THE AIM RESCUE TEAM DIRECTOR:
During the afternoon of Wednesday, 3rd February, the Siem Reap Anti Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Police Department (AHTJP) together with Officers from the AIM Rescue Team executed a raid of a brothel in Siem Reap that had been disguised as a KTV (karaoke bar). The raid followed an undercover operation showing that 2 young girls were being forced to have sex with customers inside the brothel. Both girls were rescued alongside 5 women, while 2 traffickers were arrested. The girls are now being cared for at a partner aftercare center and both traffickers have been charged with child sex trafficking related offenses and are currently in jail awaiting trial.
