Kampot Provincial Court yesterday charged a 23-year-old man with producing pornography after he posted nude photos of his ex-girlfriend on Facebook because she left him for another man.

Captain Sok Phearum, deputy chief of the provincial Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Department, identified the accused as Phuong Korea, a farmer from Toek Chhou district’s Prek Thnoat commune.

Cap Phearum said Mr Korea was charged with producing pornography and is now in prison pending trial.

He said the accused was arrested on Monday after the ex-girlfriend, 23, lodged a report claiming that Mr Korea on Friday posted five nude photographs of her on Facebook.

Second Lieutenant San Chea, a district police officer, said that according to the victim’s complaint, the photographs were taken at guesthouses in Kampot, where they often met to have sex after beginning a relationship in January.

Sec Lt Chea said the pair were dating from January until last month, when they got into an argument and the woman left the accused for another man.

He said the accused pleaded with the victim to resume their relationship, but she spurned him, leaving him heartbroken and thirsty for revenge.

“He was angry with her for ending the relationship,” Sec Lt Chea said. “To get revenge, he posted the nude photographs on his Facebook page in order to defame her.”

“When she saw the photographs, the victim lodged a report at the district police station,’’ he added.

Sec Lt Chea said that during his interrogation, Mr Chea admitted posting the photographs and said that he did so because he was angry with his ex-girlfriend for ending their relationship.
