Trial set for Brit in Cambodian scandal; 'sex' photos caused offence.
A CAMBODIAN court has started the trial of a British man who was among a group of foreigners arrested for allegedly posting photos on social media of sexually suggestive dancing.
Daniel Jones, who has been charged with producing pornography, appeared before the Siem Reap provincial court.
Daniel He was among 10 Westerners arrested in January for allegedly posting the photos from a party, and faces up to a year in prison if convicted.
One of the lawyers for the defendant, Ouch Sopheaktra, said 31-year-old Mr Jones was not granted bail and is the only one on trial because he organised the party. The other nine were released on bail and were ordered to be deported last month. The charges against them have since been dropped.
Siem Reap provincial court spokesman Yin Srang said the court has set a one-day trial.
Jones The 10 Westerners were detained when police raided a commercially organised party at a rented villa in Siem Reap town and found people dancing by a swimming pool at an event described as a pub crawl.
Siem Reap is near the famous Angkor Wat temple complex.
