Child Sex Exploit, Canadian Man Probed Further

He posed as doctor, conducted examinations on several children where sex offences are alleged to have occurred

The arrest of a Canadian for sex crimes against Cambodian children has sparked further probes into his activities.

Andrew David Eyre, a 43-year old Vancouver man was charged last week with aggravated rape and indecent assault of a child.

According to Khmer Times, the victims are aged between eight and 12, said Child Protection Unit director James McCabe.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police was reported to have said they were looking further into Eyre’s activities in Canada and abroad.

“The RCMP’s liaison officer in Thailand and the National Child Exploitation Crime Centre are looking further into Eyre’s activities in Canada and abroad,” wrote Sgt. Caroline Duval in an email to CBC News.

The liaison officer is also assisting the investigation team in Cambodia.

Further Probe

McCabe said investigators in Cambodia were planning to look into further what Eyre’s actions were in that country.

According to McCabe, Eyre allegedly visited a remote community in Kandal province, 75 kilometres outside of the capital, Phnom Penh.

He claimed to be a medical practitioner and conducted examinations on several children and during these examinations the offences are alleged to have occurred.

McCabe said the welfare and condition of the victims are being monitored.

Eyre is expected to remain in pre-trial custody and if convicted, is liable to be sentenced to seven to 15 years in prison. Indecent assault penalties range from a fine of up to three years imprisonment.
