German sentenced to 7 years for sex with boys

A German tourist was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined nearly 15 million riel for charges related to child prostitution and indecent acts against a minor less than 15 years of age.

Hans Gandner, 69, has been ordered to pay 14 million riel [$3,500], according to Sin Visal, a judge at Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

“Hans Gandner will be expelled from Cambodia after he has served the term of his sentence in prison,” he said.

Gandner is accused of luring two boys to sit with him by the riverside in Daun Penh district and then offering them money in exchange for sexual favours.

Police caught Gandner on the way to the airport on April 23, arresting him before he could board a flight out of the country.

Gandner declined to comment, but his defence lawyer Chhoeun Sokha confirmed an appeal was submitted following the announcement of his client’s verdict.
