Cambodian Man Jailed 3 Years For Insulting King
"The court announced a verdict against Ieng Cholsa which sentenced him to 3 years in prison and ordered him to pay five million riels ($1,250)," Phnom Penh Municipal Court spokesman Y Rin said.
The Facebook posts, which the court found had insulted King Norodom Sihamoni, were uploaded in June last year, Y Rin said.
Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The defendant could not be reached for comment and the court did not say whether he had a lawyer.
