Swede sentenced to four years in Thai prison
A Swedish man has been convicted of paedophilia and sentenced to four years in prison by a Thai court. The man was arrested in 2009 after police found he had bought sex from a 13-year-old boy, tabloid Aftonbladet reports.
He was arrested together with two other men for allegedly having molested several boys, all under the age of 15. All three were later released.
The 61-year-old denies the allegations and claims that Thail police forced him to confess. He has one month to appeal the ruling.
