Despite all the victims withdrawing their complaints during the court proceedings, Mr. Reuijl was found guilty of all charges
I assume that translates as "he attempted to buy them all off"?

Re: What can't you get hold of in Cambodia that you wish you could???

Re: 47yo Czech man, Marek Haitinger, found hanging. Sihanoukville.

His visa expired in December. The previous one extended 12 months but this one only six. Maybe he ran out of money, and hope.

Re: Sihanoukville: reports of up to 40 foreign passports lost or stolen.

I saw three Americans the other day on Street 51 who asked if I knew where the "Immigration police" (tourist police?) were as their passports had been stolen. They didn't stop long enough for me to actually help them though. Not sure what day it was, maybe Thursday.

Sorry for your loss. A lot of people struggle in life and we cannot always be there, and even if we can, it's sometimes still not enough. RIP.

No, A tap will not reduce the pressure, it will only reduce the flow rate. To reduce the pressure you need a pressure reducing valve. OK s...
