A Cambodian activist has been deported from Thailand and is now facing jail for helping RT make a documentary about the sex-trafficking of children. Cambodian authorities insist it included fake accounts to “defame” the country.
Rath Rott Mony, 47, helped shoot RT’s viral documentary “My Mother Sold Me,” which includes harrowing accounts of young women whose own parents forced them into prostitution to help feed the family.
Mony was detained in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday as he was preparing for a trip to the Netherlands, his wife, Long Kimheang told RT. He was about to retrieve his passport from the Dutch embassy that day, she said, and the police refused to let her film the arrest.
