Child protection NGO Action Pour Les Enfants (APLE Cambodia) applauded the Phnom Penh Municipal Court’s ruling on Friday which barred a Briton from returning to Cambodia after he was sentenced to 15 months behind bars for sexual abuse against minors.
At his trial on Friday, Stephen John Loryman was found guilty of “committing sexual acts against minors under 15” according to the Law on the Suppression of Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation.
The court suspended three-months of his sentence and banned him from entering Cambodia for three years after serving his jail terms. Loryman was also ordered to pay six million riel ($1,500) in compensation to two victims and an additional fine of three million riel.
