"The Wellington lawyer for a New Zealander serving 20 years in a Cambodian prison for raping five young employees plans to ask the New Zealand Government for money to fund his appeal."
"Graham Cleghorn, 58, was convicted of rape in 2004."
"This year, he won the right to a second appeal after successfully arguing that the first appeal hearing was unfair as neither he nor his lawyers knew about it until it was over."
"The new appeal date has been set for July 10."
"However, the defence received another setback this week when Cleghorn's lawyer in Cambodia, Dy Borima, quit the case, citing "frustration" at the corrupt court system."
