PHNOM PENH, June 22 (Xinhua) — Cambodia on Thursday mid-night expelled a notorious Russian pedophile Alexander Trofimov, 44, to his home country after he had served a jail term in Cambodia, according to the website of Cambodia’s National Police on Friday.
Arrested in 2007, Russian tycoon Trofimov was sentenced in 2008 to 17 years in prison for sexual abuses on 17 minor girls, and the sentence was reduced to 8 years by the Court of Appeal.
He was released last December under a royal pardon from Cambodian King Norodom Sihanomi.
Prior to his arrest, Trofimov was a developer of a 300 million U.S. dollars resort in the country’s coastal Preah Sihanouk province.
Lt. Gen. Kirt Chantharith, spokesman for the National Police, said that the deportation was made under the immigration law because Trofimov hat not document to prove his stay in Cambodia.
