A Japenes man has been handed a two-year prison term on charges of paying for sex with children in Siem Reap province, with 16 months of the sentence suspended. Nobuyuki Oi, 33, was arrested in November last year by Siem Reap provincial police, who received assistance in their investigation from child protection NGO Action Pour Les Enfants. He was fined 3 million riel (US$749) in addition to his jail sentence following his guilty plea on Wednesday. Nuon Panith, a lawyer for APLE who represented a 15- and a 16-year-old boy who claimed they were victims of Oi, said the sentence was unacceptable lenient. “It makes me disappointed because it is a light sentence for such a horrible crime,” he said.
