PHNOM PENH, Feb. 16 (Xinhua) -- Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday convicted two Bangladeshi and one Nepalese nationals for terrorism and sentenced them to 8 years in jail according to the Kingdom's Anti-terrorism Law, Sin Visal, presiding judge, announced the verdict.

The trios were convicted of terrorism stemming from signing a letter that threatened to attack American, Australian and British embassies in Phnom Penh last April and identified themselves in the letter as members of the al-Qaida.

"Despite their denial, they don't have enough evidence to substantiate their denial," Sin Visal said.

The three are Rafiqul Eslami, a 42-year-old Bangladeshi national and former owner of a restaurant in the capital's Chamkarmon district, Miah Muhammed Huymayan Kabir, a 62-year-old Bangladeshi national, and DP Paudel, a 44-year-old Nepalese national.

DP Paudel will be deported from Cambodia after his serving the eight-year term as he lived in Cambodia illegally.

Miah Muhammed Huymayan Kabir told reporters after the verdict that they will file to the Court of Appeal against the verdict.
