Cambodian child sexual abuse victim seeks compensation in Australian legal first

A Cambodian victim of an Australian child sexual abuse offender has launched a claim for compensation through the Australian courts, in the first case of its kind.

In January, 47-year-old Australian Geoffrey William Moyle pleaded guilty to 11 offences, eight of which related to the sexual abuse of children overseas aged between 10 and 12. The eight offences occurred in Cambodia between 2002 and 2005.

Moyle is awaiting sentencing in the South Australian district court. He is next expected to appear in court in March.
