RSF Calls Pornography Charges Against Ex-RFA Reporters ‘Grotesque’

The Appeal Court on Monday agreed with the Phnom Penh Municipal Court’s decision to send their pornography case for further investigation, despite completing the entire trial in August.

A press freedom advocacy group has called the continuing pornography proceedings against two former Radio Free Asia reporters as grotesque and said that the charges needed to be dropped.

The two former RFA reporters, Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin, have been charged for espionage and a baseless pornography charge for which the prosecution has not produced any evidence so far. The content was allegedly found on one of the reporters’ computers and was produced with a foreign citizen.
