Australian filmmaker James Ricketson has been sentenced to six years in jail by a Cambodian court for espionage despite the prosecution’s failure to even identify the country for which he was allegedly spying.
The 69-year-old raised his arms in court and said “unbelievable” after the judges handed down their ruling — a decision for which they offered no justification.
“Please tell me which country I was spying for,” he said, a question he has raised again and again throughout the course of the 14-month ordeal since his arrest.
