CAMBODIA – Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday sentenced a British former school teacher to two years in prison for sexually assaulting three minors.  Judge Kim Rathnarin found 36-year-old guilty of “committing indecent acts” against brothers aged eight, 10 and 11.

As well as the prison sentence, “he will be fined 4 million riel [$1,000] and is ordered to pay 10 million riel [$2,500]” to the victims’ family, Rathnarin said yesterday afternoon.

After his imprisonment, Fruin will be deported from Cambodia, he added.

Fruin, a former English teacher at Phnom Penh’s Universal English School, was arrested in October at a guesthouse in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, where anti-human trafficking police found him with the eight-year-old boy.

He denies all charges against him. In 2005, Fruin was convicted by a court in England of 15 counts of producing indecent images of children. – By
