72-Year-Old Japanese Man caught Smuggling Meth From Cambodia

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.

how can anyone assume a Man in his 70s is already rich enough?
that is pure nonsense..
Watch Clint Eastwood's flic The Mule..
Did I miss some news flash that all elderly Japanese men are rich?
Perhaps, he lost his bundle at a shit hole casino?
Maybe he needs money for his wife's surgery?
He did not seem greedy..
He seemed desperate ...
so fucked up..
this evil shit going all over poisoning people.. destroying lives...users and non-users.
I said plenty rich. I didn't mean he's vastly wealthy. I mean he's got all his needs and wants met. All Japanese do. Perhaps he is a patsy, only cod knows what the circumstances are. Perhaps he is using methamphetamine, emboldening him to smuggle that garbage. The true story will eventually come out.

You should watch the film Shoplifters, or look into the phenomenon of elderly Japanese going to prison in large numbers:
"I reached pension age and then I ran out of money. So it occurred to me - perhaps I could live for free if I lived in jail," he says.

OK sure that stuff happens. Rarely. That guy and others like him are the few exceptions that prove the rule. Japan operates just like a European country with vast safety nets.

Things seem to be changing quite rapidly nowadays.
As a Japanese citizen, sad but have to admit.

He is certainly handsome without th mask and quite fit. Its not unussual to have 100+ year old Japanese. Why not be a porn star for those that like that particular fetish?

I knew someone paid Pommie pensioner couple $5000 to do runs from Europe with four or five bottles of spirits. About 700ml of liquid coke in each bottle. He would turn it back into powder on arrival.
One day on Christmas Eve the bottles were stolen from the hotel room. Led to torture and murder.... great story.
