Suspected killers of a British web designer in Pattaya, Tony Kenway, escape to Cambodia

Our neighbors to the West... many of us have a love for Thailand and it's certainly got plenty to talk about, so lets talk about it here so that it doesn't overwhelm our regular Cambodia sections.

Counting dollars can confuse people.

It seems reasonable to assume that Toby Nelhams must have quite a bit of money and/or be well connected. Negociations are probably underway at present, as he has yet to be charged or deported, despite the fact that he was previously reported to have been arrested on 5 Feburary. [Here they say "Tuesday", presumably 14 Feburary.]
Thai authorities, who were blaming the Cambodians for their lack of action,seem to be no longer actively seeking Nelhams deportation, but this could change. Stay tuned.

Death case Briton quizzed again
Buth Reaksmey Kongkea Friday, 17 February 2017

-A British businessman linked to a murder in the Thai resort of Pattaya has been detained for further questioning by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court as the mystery deepened over Thai authorities’ failure to seek his extradition.

Court clerk Leng Sokha said yesterday that Toby James Nelham was questioned by deputy prosecutor Seang Sok, but had not been charged.

Yesterday, officials from the British embassy were present during the questioning of Mr. Nelham, which took longer than normal because of the need for translation.

“His questioning has not completely finished yet. It will continue tomorrow [Friday],” he said.

Court spokesman Ly Sophana confirmed that the prosecutor had not decided whether to charge Mr. Nelham.
However, he declined to give any more details about the case.

Cambodia’s National Police have received a report from the Thais about the murder, but have not been asked for help in arresting the suspects despite widespread publicity about their flight into Cambodia.

Mr. Nelham was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly entering the country illegally and staying and working without proper documents.
He has been described as a web designer, but has known links to what are known as boiler room scams...

Mr. Sophana said police were seeking information on the Springtide International company of which Mr. Nelham was chairman in Cambodia.
The company is said to be based in Phnom Penh and in Preah Sihanouk and Siem Reap provinces.

Police are also trying to trace other people who are related to his activities.

General Chhay Sinarith, the Deputy National Police Commissioner, General Sopha, the head of the immigration police department at the Interior Ministry, and Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak could not be reached for comment yesterday.

UPDATE: Toby Nelhams will be charged with illegally entering Cambodia and for lacking the proper documents, such as passport, visa, work permit, business licence. It is possible that he will be sentenced on these minor charges, given a hefty 'fine', and released or deported. If there is still no official request for his deportation to Thailand or an international warrant for his arrest, he will probably be free to leave the country.
No comment so far from the British authorities.
Cambodia’s General Commissariat of National Police recently received a report of a murder allegedly committed by foreign suspects in Pattaya who fled to Cambodia, Pol Gen Sinarith said. However, Thai authorities had not requested Cambodia’s cooperation in arresting the suspects, he added.

Kong Sarith, an officer with the Interior Ministry’s immigration police, said Mr Nelham was the chairman of Springtide International, which was based in Phnom Penh. with branches in Preah Sihanouk and Siem Reap provinces.

“He was arrested by Cambodian immigration police because he illegally entered Cambodia and illegally stayed and worked in the country,” he said.

“He is accused of illegally crossing the border and illegally entering Cambodia, staying in Cambodia without authorisation and working in Cambodia without legal documents.

He [Nelhams] was charged under the immigration law for entering the country illegally and fraudulently altering resident or work cards—crimes that carry maximum prison sentences of six months and 15 years, respectively—Mr. Sok said. Breach of trust is punishable by up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 6 million riel, or about $1,500.

Uk Heisela, chief of investigations at the Interior Ministry’s immigration department, confirmed Mr. Nelhams’ imprisonment, but said he had no information about his alleged connection to the murder.

“The court charged him for not having a passport,” Mr. Heisela said, adding that he had not received a request from Thai authorities to extradite Mr. Nelhams, who had been living in Cambodia for eight years.

Mr. Heisela added that Mr. Nelhams was not cooperating with authorities.

“He did not speak with us. So we cannot learn anything,” he said.

On Thursday, a U.K. Foreign Office spokesman said in an email that the office was “in contact with the local authorities following the arrest of a British man in Cambodia.”

Background:
- Suspected murderer Toby James Nelhams was charged with fraud and immigration violations on Friday, while the former employee(sic) of one of his alleged accomplices claimed Nelhams lived in Phnom Penh in the months prior to the killing...

A chef at the recently closed Fisherman’s Cafe restaurant in Pattaya yesterday said that Nelhams had owned the establishment for about six years, but was rarely there in person.
“He only came to the restaurant twice in the last two years,” the man said yesterday, telling The Post he didn’t think Nelhams had ever actually lived in Pattaya.

The manager of a Phnom Penh bar that Caldeira once worked for said Nelhams and Tucker frequently came to the bar when Caldeira was working as a bartender.

“They sat right there all the time,” he said, gesturing to one section of the bar.

Caldeira’s former employer said the alleged hitman claimed he had just arrived in Phnom Penh when he began working at the bar “around six or seven months ago”. Facebook posts depict Caldeira in Cambodia as early as 2013, and seem to show that his mother lived in Phnom Penh.

“It’s strange to see he killed somebody. I’m shocked, I don’t believe it” he said about Caldeira, adding that Nelhams was also “such a nice guy”. Tucker, he said, never spoke...

Widow of Murdered Boiler Room Boss Wants Briton Toby Nelham Extradited from Cambodia
Image

JOMTIEN – The widow of Briton Tony Kenway who was gunned down in broad dayligh in Pattaya is calling for the extradition of Toby James Nelham, 44, who reportedly ordered Kenway’s murder and was arrested in Sihanoukville last week.

According to the Pattaya Mail News, Somporn Kenway, went to Nongprue Police Station to push for the extradition of Nelham, believing that the UK was blocking Nelham’s extradition from Cambodia to Thailand, due to it having the death penalty.

Mr Nelham, 44, was arrested by Cambodian immigration police in Phnom Penh on Feb 15th and taken to Phnom Penh Municipal Court for questioning.

Toby Nelham is accused of hiring Briton Miles Dicken Turner, 24, and South African Abel Bonito Caldeira, 28, to kill Kenway after a falling out over their joint boiler room operation that swindled people in the U.K. and Australia out of their life savings through bogus investments.

Nelham allegedly owed Kenway 8 million baht and, when Nelham didn’t pay, Kenway ratted him out to police and tried to have him arrested. Nelham fled to Cambodia where he reportedly set up a similar call center operation which later failed, another thing for which he blamed Kenway...
