Australian drug smuggler sentenced to 23 years in Cambodian

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Makes me sick that the AFP know about it but prefer tipoff the Cambodians when they could arrest the guilty in Australia and have them serve a fair sentence.

Cambodian justice is swifter and cost a fuck of a lot less.

They made the right move an it sets a deterrent for other potential Australians) like the Balinese case

If you cant do the time, don't do the crime!


What sad is that all these little busts do absolutely nothing to stem the tide of illegal drugs anywhere. The big guys seldom get caught.
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

The squeeze should come pre-trial and certainly pre-sentencing, I would think.

I think she'll be getting squeezed eventually.

I've actually met Precious a bunch of times (pre-incarceration). He is a charming fellow.
