Cambodian court convicts two Japanese in murder of taxi driver

Two Japanese men in their 20s were convicted Thursday in the murder of a taxi driver in Cambodia’s northwestern province of Siem Reap earlier this year and sentenced to at least a decade in prison.

Handing down the verdict, Um Chanthol, presiding judge of the Siem Reap Provincial Court, meted out a 13-year term to Ryuji Nakakuki and a 10-year term to his friend Reimon Ishida.

The pair were also ordered to pay compensation of 100 million riels (¥2.6 million) to the bereaved family.
