Briton to be extradited to Cambodia on rape charges

A Thai court was favorable to a Cambodian request of extradition to David John Fletcher, a British citizen of 65 years old that had a children’s charity center and is accused of rape charges, according to The Bangkok Post. Fletcher was arrested and charged in Cambodia, but he managed to escape to Thailand last August. He denied the accusation and said that he is a victim of a group of influential people with whom he did not want to cooperate in money-laundering. He even said that he was threaten to dead. The Thai criminal court did not find the claims of Fletcher of enough weight and order his extradition to Phnom Penh.
