Although the arrested Westerns were accused of "singing and dancing pornographically", the photographs released by the Cambodian government (many of which include people who were not arrested) show the individuals wearing clothes and laughing while they rolled around on the floor and mimed various sexual positions. If convicted, they'll face up to one year in prison.
Ten tourists that attended a raucous pool party near Cambodia's sacred Angkor Wat - a religious temple complex - were arrested and accused of human trafficking and producing pornography.
The scandal began when Cambodian authorities arrested almost 90 foreigners during a party at a rented villa in Siem Reap near the Angkor Wat temple complex, according to CBC.
The organization claims to offer "Cambodia's premier backpackers parties" that give travelers free drinks and several pools to party in, The Sun reported.
CNN reports that the President of Cambodia Law Services, Sam Onn Kong, said he didn't believe what the tourists were alleged to have done was actually illegal under Cambodian law, and it wasn't clear to him why they were arrested.
Five of the ten tourists released a statement claiming their innocence.
"We're innocent. We don't know why we've been arrested - we're getting different stories from different people", said one of the many detained that day.
The villa was allegedly a stop on a pub crawl through the popular tourist town.
"Consular officials are in contact with local authorities to gather additional information", said a spokesman, who added that he wouldn't comment further to protect the privacy of those involved.
"It was really confusing".
They were arrested on Thursday after images emerged of people appearing to imitate sex acts at a party in a villa in Siem Reap in the north-west. There's a lot of us parents on it, and I'm in touch with them, but it's hard. Some of them were tourists.
"They just did what they were told in the hope they [Khmer authorities] would say "oh, well we'll get you all to sign these papers and nothing will happen". When caught, they have been expelled from the country.
