Finnish Backpacker/Expat Hannah Sirkiä Arrested AGAIN in Cambodia! This Time in Kampot For Property Damage

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.

Kampot, Cambodia: Hannah Sirkiä, a backpacker from Finland who was arrested in December of last year during a MDMA drug bust in Sihanoukville (only to be released a few days later without charges) has been arrested again, this time in Kampot and for damaging an ATM machine.

She has been accused of damaging an ABA Bank ATM.

Could she have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time twice in less than 5 months? Seems more likely that she's on a downward spiral.

Image

In a seemingly unrelated story, another foreigner identified as James Benjamin, was arrested in Kampot for damaging property at One Night Guesthouse while under the influence of alcohol.

Anymore news on the outcome of this story?

On Facebook it seems she's left Cambodia, but not certain. I hope she has. Total waste of space.

The poor dear was probably trying to raise funds to attend a Halloween party in Sihanoukville.

I bet the glory hole was happy she didn't turn up. Although she would have won the best Halloween dress.

How much money did she have to pay to get out of that MDMA charge?

A 2$ buzz cut and a little more eyebrow pencil and it’d be difficult to tell them apart.
