Australian man to face trial in Cambodia

An Australian former Catholic school teacher will face trial on pedophile charges next week after an appeals court in Phnom Penh rejected two annulment attempts, deigning one was outside the court’s jurisdiction and in the second he had no right to question police interviews, his lawyer says.

Mulroy, from Lismore in northern New South Wales, was not allowed to attend Tuesday’s closed hearing and instead awaited the decision from his prison cell in the northwest city of Siem Reap.

His lawyer So Mosseny said he was disappointed by the decisions, adding there was no right of appeal for annulment.
