Australian Expat JAMES NEAL PASCOE Arrested in Phnom Penh for Selling Oranges & Orange Juice

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:27 pm

Phnom Penh: On February 6 at 9:35AM a 54 year old Australian man JAMES NEAL PASCOE was arrested for selling oranges and fresh orange juice for nearly 1 month on street 350/173, Khan Chamkarmor, Phnom Penh.

The source said that the Australian man has a Cambodian wife who lives in Sankat Pkar Derm Tkov, Khan Chamkarmorn. The police and people who travel on that street have been interested to see the "Barang" selling oranges and orange juice in the neighborhood. After someone reported him, the police from Khan Svay Prey and immigration police came to question the Australian man.

After interrogating James Pascoe, the Australian man said he was just out there helping his wife sell the oranges as it wasn't even his business.

The kind police officers took him to the Department of Immigration for reeducation and later released him to his Cambodian wife and let him know he shouldn't be working.

He needs to move around like the PieMan. That's probably a lot safer.

I went past that guy about a month ago and gave him a double take. He only had about ten oranges stacked up in a pyramid, and I did the math and wondered how it was even worth the time. There's nothing wrong with selling orange juice but it's something local people manage quite well. It's a crummy as fuck stretch of road there too, so I was also wondering whose bright idea it was to set it up on a giant kerb on a pot-holed dusty bottle-neck.

This maybe the first of the retiree visa holders to get a caution, for working on the wrong visa.

I think the Australian Embassy has had stern words with him for bringing Australia into disrepute by being caught in the possession of non alcoholic drinks :stir:

Wow. That sux. The dude was probsbly trying to keep himself occupied so he wouldn't spend all day boozing with his mates.

The last sentence is amusing.... he shouldn't be working.
The police were probably concerned he was single handedly going to change Cambodian tradition. 'Dude, the women do this, not the men.' 'Go lie in your hammock or something.'

Did he have to pay the cops a bribe?

How much did they squeeze out of him?
