The British citizen jailed for distributing smut, in the form of an on-line promotion for a pool party using images deemed “pornographic”, was released from prison.
Yin Srang, Siem Reap Provincial Court spokesman, told Khmer Times on Wednesday morning that “Daniel Jones was released from the prison on Tuesday [March 20] evening.”
The court declined to go into more detail, but Mr Jones’ attorney, Sourng Sophea, said: “My client left prison at around 5 pm on Tuesday,” but had no idea as to whether Mr Jones wishes to stay in Cambodia or emigrate.
Daniel Jones, 31, was one of the 10 foreigners arrested in January in police raid on a pool bash at a private Siem Reap villa in. The court dropped charges against everyone but him.
The Siem Reap Provincial Court found Mr Jones guilty as charged and sentenced him to one year in prison but suspending the greater part of it [Khmer Times reported].
