The Supreme Court will deliver a verdict on July 15 in relation to an appeal filed by media translator Ratt Roth Mony, who has been convicted for his involvement in a Russian documentary about sex trafficking in Phnom Penh.
Ratt Roth Mony was convicted by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on June 26, 2019, for incitement and sentenced to two years in prison. Last November, the Appeal Court dismissed an appeal by Ratt Roth Mony upholding the lower court’s verdict.
Government officials have denied the claims in the documentary, produced by Russian-state media outlet RT called “My Mother Sold Me”, with the lower court ordering Ratt Roth Mony to pay around $16,500 to the two subjects featured in the video.
