Australian missionary fights to free her husband from Cambodian prison over charity dispute

An Australian Christian missionary is being held in a Cambodian prison over a legal dispute involving a charity-run school project he volunteered for, and a local construction company.

Forty-nine-year-old Martin Chan was arrested and jailed in November as he and his wife Deborah Kim were boarding a flight to visit family in Hong Kong.

The couple met studying in Sydney in the early 1990s and have lived in Cambodia for seven years, spending most of their time working as Christian missionaries for a Korean charity called His Child.
