The Phnom Penh municipal court Tuesday officially detained the editors of a khmer-language newspaper, allegedly for demanding $30,000 from a Karaoke star, over sex videotape.
Court judge Kong Seth says the court has ruled to temporarily detain the men on extortion charges.
The anti-human trafficking police arrested the three men at a coffee shop Saturday.
Police says the men attempted to blackmail the actress by threatening to publish still video shots from a porn video featuring a woman that looked similar to her.
