Dead man found guilty of child-sex crimes

A BRITISH man who died in August was found guilty of purchasing child prostitutes yesterday by the Siem Reap provincial court. Judge Sok Leng said that a police investigation had found that 54-year-old Robert Layland was guilty of buying child prostitutes, even though the UK national maintained his innocence until his death from tuberculosis on August 31. “Robert Layland was accused by the four underage children who were working in his souvenir shop,” the judge said. Layland was arrested in Siem Reap town in January  this year.
