Child porn conviction upheld on appeal

The Appeal Court yesterday upheld a conviction against a Japanese national sentenced to six years in jail for producing child pornography. Shunichi Nakagawa, 32, was arrested on August 17, 2008, after taking photographs of several Cambodian boys aged between 11 to 15 in Sihanoukville. In July 2009, Sihanoukville provincial court sentenced Nakagawa to six years jail and ordered him to pay US$125 in compensation to each boy. Yesterday, Judge Choun Sunleng also dismissed a demand from a lawyer representing the victims that the compensation payment be raised to $5,000 for each child.
