The court in Sihanoukville has released Briton Stewart Mansel, who was accused
of trying to buy sex from a 12-year-old boy. Judge Sok Soeun said there was
insufficient evidence to charge Mansel, who was released on March 18, and might
bring a defamation claim against those who had the 57-year-old arrested. Dy
Borima, Mansel's lawyer, said his client had nothing to do with the boy. Mansel
returned to the UK on March 19.
