A Kompong Speu province man was arrested Friday after his wife found him allegedly raping 15-year-old girl behind their house Thursday nigh, police chief Khoem Samoron said 45-year-old Kel Boub confessed to have sex on multiple occasions with the victim but claimed its was consensual.

“Even if the victim did agree with the suspect, the suspect still violated the law because the victim was underage” he said, adding that the suspect lured the victim with money, and because she was uneducated and impoverished she was likely unsure that the suspect’s actions were inappropriate. According to Ly Vantha, provincial anti-human trafficking police chief, the alleged rapist is still being questioned, and is expected to be sent to the court today...

“There are a lot of rape cases in this province” he said, adding that he did not remember exact figures but that “It is worse in the remote areas because there is a greater opportunity for rapist to commit crimes”. (Site from Cambodia Daily news)
