Out of Cambodian jail, filmmaker strolls on beach back home

CANBERRA, Australia: Australian filmmaker James Ricketson took a stroll on a Sydney beach at dawn as he recuperates from more than a year in a Cambodian prison.
Ricketson landed in Sydney on Sunday night two days after his 15-month stint in a Phnom Penh prison ended with clemency granted by Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni.
His nephew Bim Ricketson said on Monday the imprisonment had taken a toll on his uncle’s health.
The 69-year-old filmmaker was sentenced on Aug. 31 to six years in a trial his sympathizers described as farcical.
