Pardoned Australian filmmaker to be deported from Cambodia

BREAKING NEWS


PHNOM PEHN, Cambodia: An Australian filmmaker was awaiting deportation from Cambodia on Saturday after receiving a royal pardon for his conviction on spying charges for flying a drone over a political rally.

A spokesman for immigration police said that James Ricketson will be deported on Saturday morning, a day after being released from prison.

 Ricketson repeatedly insisted he had no political agenda and his work making documentary films was journalistic in nature.
