A 57-year-old Frenchman yesterday denied accusations that he sexually abused at least 15 Cambodian boys in Kandal province, claiming police set him up.
 
Bernard Louis Francois Soudeller was arrested in June 2015 at his rental home in Koh Thom district.
 
Lao Lin, chief of the anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection unit, said during the trial at Kandal Provincial Court that Mr Soudeller’s arrest was sparked by a complaint.
 
“He was arrested based on the complaint of the mother of a 12-year-old-boy whom he committed sexual abuse against and had sex with,” said Mr Lin. 
 
“But after his arrest and more investigation, we discovered he committed sexual abuse and had sex with 15 Khmer boys aged seven to 13.”
 
The hearing continues on Friday of next week.
