Verdicts due in child sex cases

Verdicts are expected to be handed down by Phnom Penh Municipal Court today in the cases of British national Gareth Ashley Corbett and Ho Nguy, a Cambodian-Vietnamese man, both in connection with child sex charges filed earlier this year, deputy court prosecutor Ek Chheng Huot said on Thursday. Samleang Seila, country director of NGO Action Pours Les Enfants, said the organisation would attend. If convicted, Corbett faces one to three years in prison for indecent acts with a 13-year-old. Nguy faces seven to 15 years for acting as an accomplice in the purchasing of child prostitution.
