Trial delayed for french national

Preah Sihanouk provincial court on Wednesday postponed the trial of a French national accused of committing indecent acts with underage boys, as two new charges emerged, court officials said. Michel Roger Blanchard, 44, was arrested in 2008 and charged with abusing five boys between the ages of 11 and 16, and has already been convicted on one charge. He has now also been charged with two new crimes pertaining to allegations that he engaged in sexual acts with a 17-year-old boy in Sihanoukville.
