Lawyer for Graham Cleghorn says his appeal hearing went well and they presented a good case

The lawyer for a New Zealand man convicted of sex charges in Cambodia says his latest appeal hearing went well.

Graham Cleghorn was convicted in 2004 of raping five women who worked for him, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Yesterday, a Cambodia court heard Cleghorn's appeal in private, after a previous appeal was abandoned when witnesses were not summoned.

Cleghorn's Cambodian lawyer, Ry Ourky (Ree Oak) says three out of the five complainants were cross-examined.

Ry Ourky says the court will make a decision on the appeal next week.
