Appeal delay for New Zealander jailed in Cambodia

A New Zealander jailed in Cambodia on sex charges has been dealt another blow in his bid for an appeal.

Graham Cleghorn, 60, was convicted of raping five of his workers. His latest appeal against his conviction has been adjourned.

He was due to have the appeal heard on Thursday, but the Cambodian authorities did not transfer him from prison to court.

Cleghorn's New Zealand-based lawyer, Greg King, says it is another delay and they are at the mercy of the Cambodian justice system.

He says Cleghorn just wants to get the appeal heard but that will not happen till the end of this month.

Mr King says Cleghorn is becoming increasingly frustrated with the delays and the conditions in which he is incarcerated are deteriorating
