Well damn. Do you have anything to back up these claims of his arrest? I haven't seen it in the local news yet.

I also don't believe the bit on the underage kids thing. sounds like a petty and vindictive swipe to fling mud at the guy and if it turns out you did make this up then sunwukong500 I hope the same happens to you. Don't know the guy and don't care but often you'll get people throwing the "underage kids" thing at people arrested with no proof, guessing you did that as he likes men. Anyway have heard rumors he is in the can awaiting deportation but as you say General nothing in any of the papers seems kinda odd.

Was told by a local that the place was full of people taking out papers and stuff the other day, and there were staff meetings and they were all locked out. Rumour was the German had done a runner. Seemed to be a few staff working there yesterday so it looks like it may still be open. He has some nice cars and so do his business associates so they have assets if it is a local administrative issue, but that will not help if the German police have managed to get an extradition order. I would not put much credence in some of the ngos's that come under "well known NGO dealing in child trafficking". Child trafficking is not necessarily child prostitution. Children are trafficked as beggars and domestic staff and clothes factory workers and brick makers and labour on building site (which his hotel still is). They could have been with hotel guests, or staff. it will come out eventually

Wearing bathroom slippers when meeting with Cambodian officials, that's a new one.

Curious that the OP appears seemingly purely to smear this guy. Sock account?

I don't think Germany has an extradition agreement with Cambodia.

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.
