The Phnom Penh Municipal Police arrested 15 people related to surrogacy who were together in a house in Sen Sok district.  Eleven of the persons arrested on Thursday (Nov.8) are surrogate mothers, two cooks for the ladies, and two unspecified men.


Surrogacy is an arrangement whereby a woman agrees to bear a child for another person.  And that other person will ultimately become the parent of the child.

According to National Police, the detainees were sent to the Anti-Human Trafficking Office for questioning.

In June, the police arrested 40 people related to surrogacy in a house in Russey Keo district: 37 women, two brokers, and a Chinese national.
