10 held on porn party charges
TEN foreigners charged with producing pornographic photos during a party near Cambodia’s famed Angkor Wat temple complex have denied wrongdoing, a prosecutor says.
However, Siem Reap provincial prosecutor Samrith Sokhon said there was “enough evidence to prove they violated the law and therefore they must face charges”.
Five people from the UK, two from Canada and one each from Norway, the Netherlands and New Zealand were charged on Sunday.
Police said they raided a rented villa last Thursday and found the foreigners “dancing pornographically” during what organisers called a pub crawl.
Almost 90 foreigners were detained, before all but 10 were released.
They were charged with producing pornographic pictures, which the prosecutor said were later posted on social media.
