The lawyer for 10 Westerners arrested in Cambodia for allegedly posting photos on social media showing themselves engaged in sexually suggestive dancing says they may have offended local standards of morality, but should be expelled from the country rather than jailed.
The 10 — from the United Kingdom, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands and New Zealand — were arrested last Thursday when police raided a party at a rented villa in the northwestern town of Siem Reap and found people "dancing pornographically" at an event organizers called a pub crawl.
Lawyer Sourng Sophea said Tuesday he did not know what conditions were like for his detained clients since he had not yet met them in jail. They face up to a year in prison if convicted.
