Swedish Pedophile Convicted in Cambodia

A 62 year old Swedish man has been sentenced to 6,5 years imprison in Cambodia for sexually abusing three boys over a period of several years.

Swedish police informed the prosecution in Phnom Penh about the man's background, but were otherwise not involved in the case. He has earlier been sentenced in Sweden for sexually abusing children.

Swedish courts have the option of sentencing its citizens who commit crimes abroad. If the man had not been convicted in Cambodia, the police was planning to start an investigation here, according to the news agency TT.
