PHNOM PENH – Authorities in Cambodia are routinely and unlawfully detaining and abusing sex workers, New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in a report Tuesday, citing interviews with more than 90 female and transgender sex workers.
In a 76-page report titled "Off the Streets: Arbitrary Detention and Other Abuses against Sex Workers in Cambodia," Human Rights Watch said police beat prostitutes with fists, sticks, wooden handles, and electric batons and on occasion rape them in detention.
