69-year-old British doctor arrested for sexually abusing minors
69-year-old British doctor has been arrested for paying girls as young as 12 years old for sex in Cambodia.
Clive Cressy from Hove, East Sussex, was arrested at a cafe in the capital Phnom Penh last Thursday after a police investigation. During the arrest, a suitcase packed with children’s clothes and Barbie dolls was found with him.
Police accused him of paying for sex with four girls aged 12, 13, 14 and 15. He was also said to have paid up to £2,300 to have sex with a virgin.
Apart from what was found on him, after raiding his address, the police are alleged to have found a stash of lubricants and sex toys.
The report also has it that his Vietnamese girlfriend Chea Sokthy, 27, was also arrested at his apartment after being accused of procuring the youngsters.
The pair appeared at the The Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday and were both charged and remanded at the Prey Sar prison to await trial.
Investigations are on on the matter as the police are saying there might be more children who had been abused by the duo.
A Cambodian news portal, NKD news, claimed Cressy had been in Cambodia for a while as a tourist and that he had been under investigation for some time after the police received complaints from the mothers of the girls who had allegedly been abused. Punch
