Rape case meeting

New Zealand's ambassador in Thailand is to seek a meeting with the Cambodian Justice Minister over convicted New Zealand rapist Graham Cleghorn's case. Cleghorn, 58, is in a Phnom Penh prison after being convicted of raping five teenage girls. He says a women's centre bribed teenagers to testify against him. Matters the ambassador hopes to raise include that an appeal was held in Cleghorn's absence. A New Zealand child advocate has questioned whether the centre would have the financial means for bribes.
