Seven years for British national for child sex

A 38-year-old British national was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined two million riels (about US$500) in Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday, over charges of child prostitution and indecent acts against two underage girls. Matthew John Harland, 38, was arrested in May last year in a guesthouse in the Boeung Tumpon village of Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district. He was charged with sexual acts against two girls under the age of 15 in Daun Penh in 2006, according to Presiding Judge Kor Vandy.
