Appeal Postponed

 

An appeal hearing for a New Zealand man serving 20 years in jail for raping five young Cambodian women has been postponed.

Graham Cleghorn, 60, was convicted three years ago of raping the women, all of whom had worked at his home in the town of Siem Reap.

The New Zealander has repeatedly denied the charges, saying that he was framed by an activist group.

Local media reports say the appeal was postponed after a change of judges was requested by Cleghorn's family .
