Belgian Murder Suspect (Olly) Flees Cambodia on Bail

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.

I actually don't think that was the case in this situation, or at least not the main issue.
Happy to defer to more experienced heads!
Sorry, I didn't mean for that to sound snotty, I just didn't have TIME to respond at length. This case was a big deal and there was a lot of external pressure (France, whoever cares about tourism in the Cambo gov) to get this solved as quickly as possible. Lots of reasons to pin it on a foreigner, especially someone that had been acting erratically and had been having problems with several people in town. They probably really thought he did it (or at least didn't have any better suspects). Maybe if he had offered them 80k on first arrest before it hit the papers it would have helped, but if you really hadn't killed someone your first response probably wouldn't be to offer that kind of money. I can't imagine the police ignoring a viable suspect in a case this high profile for chump change, and the French police were also involved, making it harder still.

I'd say Giblet is about right on this story. He was acting like a total dick around town at the time,which involved the cops sometimes. The French lady was murdered and they either had no idea,or a very good idea who did it,but decided Olly would fit the bill with his recent sillyness. I believe the Belgian authorities were quite involved in the case,on Olly's side,so it looks like this pressure and the total lack of any evidence,resulted in the judge having to let him go. The passport being held stuff was simply to make it look like he was still guilty,to save face. They knew full well he would leave the country. They,in their eyes don't look daft and Olly goes free. Makes me think,we shouldn't be making a nuisance of ourselves here. You never know. I will say though,that Olly still owes my restaurant for a soda and a beer. $1.75. Thats without two years interest.

Since you're trying to sell your business, I suggest you not highlight such small debts, as it makes it look like the amount is important. Image
