Cambodia: Drop trumped-up charges in child sexual exploitation documentary case

Ahead of the hearing in the case of Rath Rott Mony at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court today, Nicholas Bequelin, Amnesty International’s Regional Director for East and Southeast Asia said:

“Mony is being punished solely for his role in exposing the horrors of child sexual exploitation in Cambodia. The bogus charges against him are designed to intimidate anyone whose work contribute to exposing this scourge – and the government’s woeful inaction.

“The authorities should drop the prosecution of Rath Rott Mony and release him immediately and unconditionally.”
