Cambodia’s anti-sex trafficking icon, Somaly Mam, has been accused of being a fraud.
Named one of TIME Magazine’s Most Influential People, Somaly generated millions of dollars and celebrity backing for her work against sexual slavery.
But following reports that she lied about her past, the foundation bearing her name closed. Now, she’s fighting to rebuild her reputation and to look after the girls and women in her care.
On 101 East, Somaly talks on camera for the first time about what she says are false claims.
With sex trafficking rife in Cambodia, we ask, did Somaly Mam lie to save girls from the trade?
