Convicted paedophile Richard William Fruin, who was once jailed by Gloucester Crown Court, has been caged again for two years, this time for sexually abusing three boys in Cambodia according to reports by the Hong Kong based newspaper The Standard.
The 36-year-old former school teacher was charged at Gloucester Crown Court back in 2005 with 15 counts of producing child pornography. He was released on bail and fled the country for seven years.
The anti-paedophile organisation Action Pour Les Enfants reported that he travelled to Africa and South East Asia before returning to the UK last year, where he was re-arrested and sentenced to one year in prison. On his release, he flew to Cambodia.
Today he was hauled before the Phnom Penh Municipal Court in the country where he was jailed for two years for sexually abusing three boys under the age of 15.
Judge Kim Rathnarin said Fruin was guilty of committing 'indecent acts', adding: "He will be deported from Cambodia after serving the jail term."
He was also ordered to pay US$2,500 in fines to his victims.
Fruin denied the charge against him during a trial.
Campaign group APLE Cambodia welcomed the guilty verdict and deportation order. Spokesman Yi Moden said: "We can be sure that this man will not hurt any child in Cambodia anymore. The victims do not have to be scared that he will ever hurt them again.''
Fruin was arrested in a guest house in October last year where an eight-year-old boy was also found. He was arrested after parents of other children sexually abused by him came forward with complaints.
