Briton to stand trial

A BRITON who headed a children’s charity in Phnom Penh has been charged in Thailand with the rape of a Cambodian minor, local authorities said yesterday. David Fletcher, 65, faces expulsion from Thailand after the Cambodian government filed a request with Thai authorities last week for his extradition, said Bith Kimhong, director of the bureau of anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection at the Ministry of Interior. “Cambodia will arrange the extradition of Mr David next week,” he said, and Fletcher, who was detained on immigration violations on June 27, should be back to face trial within 60 days.
