The judge issued the sentence on Monday against former United Nations official Peter Dalglish, who was arrested last year and convicted last month of sexually abusing children.

He was issued separate sentences of nine years and seven years but they will overlap, so he will be in jail for nine years in total, Kavre District Court official Thakur Chandra Trital said on Tuesday.

The judge also ordered Dalglish to pay 500,000 rupees (US$4,500) as compensation to each of the boys, who were then 12 and 14 years old.
