Cambodia News (Siem Reap): On December 24, 2019, at 3:30 pm, the Department of investigation and procedure at Siem Reap Immigration Office received a 50-year-old Norwegian man, BARD GARCIA DE PRESNO ESPELAND, from Siem Reap police station. The Norwegian man was arrested with a packet of marijuana.
Image
The man came to Cambodia on a one month tourist visa on November 29, 2019, through Poipet border from Thailand. After that, he was found sleeping in the public street in Siem Reap, and he was arrested while he was high, lying down on the floor at Chok pagoda. The police found a pack of marijuana on him, and he didn't have his passport with him, though they found it later.

The police sent the Norwegian man to the deportation office in Siem Reap to follow the legal action.

Well that year since he got his passport issued hasn't been kind to him.

And he looks like he's holding about three folds of loose abdomen skin up in an effort to look half-respectable. :facepalm:

He doesn't have a belt on and is holding up his shorts.
His haggard look sure as fuck is not from smoking weed. So, his passport was back at his guesthouse..How many of you carry your passport around with you?
I would like to know how long he has been on the road.
He has a look of hard drinking and hard drugs on his mug.
The bag of weed is FULL by the way.
Poor schlub...got hammered and passed out on the fucking street for Christmas.
Probably had some Thai gal wreck him and he stumbled across the border when his visa was up.

Shame! Shame!

Publish his photo all over the planet then tie him to a stake and burn him alive.

Shame Shame
Howl like wolf - or a pack of running dogs...

These stories make me puke!
and make feel dirty for even looking at them


Nothing personal CEO News - you know i love you.
' just imo. but it deserves consideration i reckon. ??.
there are many CEO members who have bought a bag of weed in Cambodia and would hate having their photos plastered all over the planet for that - let alone for the state of their gut.

I notice the endless stream of cambodian meth addicts and .2grm dealers that appear on CEO seems to have slowed over the past couple of weeks. IF that is a new CEO policy, i fully agree.

For discussion, members.....

Well it's good news because at least he's
Spoiler:
not dead, like fuckloads of wandering souls trying substances like it's candy and then loosing conscience then life somewhere in a dirty room of some shady guesthouse, or been stabbed while sleeping on the beach /pagoda/temple, or lured into narcotics business with untrustworthy "partners", or having been busy hiding the remains of some random hooker, or even approaching kids or worse.

At least, his sorry face will make more warning-effect to the viewers in preparation for a trip to Cambodia. See, people ? Don't do drugs here, don't overdo alcool here, and smoke your doobie in the nature, one at the time.

But yeah, an short abreviation of the name + stating nationality should be enough, for a case like this where nobody is harmed except himself. Not enough to shame him, just enough to know it's him, if a relative checks, would be appropriate, like Norvegian - BGdP-Esp or B-Es, something like this...or his sorry face, but no name / ID.

He was here since one month, and his face looks much better on his 1 year passport. May this catch sends him back home getting healthcare. Could have been worse.
What do you think ?

Big fucking deal. Man falls asleep and has weed in his pocket. How is he homeless if he's just on holiday and his passport is back at his guesthouse?

It's quite simple if you come to a foreign country you behave and obey the law.
If you behave in Cambodia the second part is even optional. Nothing will happen to you, your name won't be published etc.
