• Vietnam jails Canadian for sexually abusing homeless boys


    HANOI: Vietnam has jailed a Canadian teacher for four years for sexually abusing underage homeless boys he met on Hanoi’s streets, a court official said Thursday, in a rare prosecution for the offense. Vadim Scott Benderman, 46, who taught English at a foreign language center and played music in bars in Hanoi, was found guilty at a trial in the capital Hanoi on Wednesday. According to local media reports, Benderman met the boys in central Hanoi before luring them to his apartment and paying them around $13 for sex. Benderman will be deported after completing his four-year jail term, the clerk added.
