New Zealander arrested for 'producing pornography' in Cambodia released on bail

The group of eight men and two women, aged between 19 and 35, were charged with producing pornographic pictures and told they could face up to a year in jail if convicted.

Those released can not leave the country yet as their passports were taken away, a court spokesman said.

Three of the alleged party organisers - from Britain, the Netherlands and Norway, remain in custody.

Yim Srang, a court spokesman in the northwestern province of Siem Reap, said the investigation had been completed and seven of the suspects were released on Wednesday, but no trial date has been set. Investigating judge Chhe Virak declined to comment.

The 10 - from Canada, the U.K., Norway, the Netherlands and New Zealand - were arrested on January 25 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.

Sourng Sophea, a lawyer for the ten foreigners, said he did not know seven had been released on bail because his clients did not contact him.

"I was lucky to have Jessica in there with me", Kazoleas said. "I think that the provincial court sped up the case".
