`Institutional abuse` claims in Cambodia

"The British founder of a Cambodian orphanage is facing prosecution for sexually assaulting a boy in his care."

"Nicholas Griffin, 52, was held when police raided his isolated base in countryside near Siem Reap, in the north-west of the country."

"Up to 100 children were moved to a safe house in an operation that involved British and local investigators."

"Mr Griffin, originally from Wales, left Britain in 2006 before founding the Cambodia Orphan Fund, one year later."

"He faces a potential 10-year jail sentence over a claim he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy..."

"Jim Gamble, of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop), said Cambodian police are now examining claims of `institutional abuse` within the orphanage, which occupies an unusual fortress-like building."
