Phnom Penh – The family of Rath Rott Mony, a fixer who was jailed for working on an RT documentary about sex trafficking in Cambodia, has gathered at the Russian Embassy in Phnom Penh to call for his release.
The documentary, “My Mother Sold Me”, which aired in October, depicted a young Cambodian woman apparently selling her daughter’s virginity. After the film aired, Cambodian government officials claimed the film was fabricated and damaging to Cambodia’s reputation.
Long Kim Heang, Rott Mony’s wife, said the group had organized the protest to draw attention to her husband’s plight.
