Australian English Teacher at Western University Jonathan Bond from Adelaide Dies at Home from Apparent Drug Overdose

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.

SHAME on the owner for selling or giving people access to such a private matter.
The owner of what? It was in the local papers before it was on here.
I think she means the owner of Jonathon's flat for allowing access to his room and to details of his death. People outside Cambodia are often shocked by what's posted in the media here.
However, i think we can give a special mention to the Daily Mail UK for 1/ a particularly nasty article on an unfortunate death, and 2/ for ripping off all their info & photos from other sources without giving credit due.

If she'd just read this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... bodia.html , then no wonder she's upset - they really insist on making it all sound as sordid as possible.

Sorry for your loss missb. And stop reading the DM, it's toxic.

Condolences.

We were a bit kinder than the Daily Mail and edited out his passport number and signature.

Believe it or not, he's lucky not to have been photographed keeled over, like most deceased in Cambodia.

LoL, I love how CEO (a discussion forum) catches shit for not always providing sources for translations, yet Daily Mail (an established internationally known and recognized "news" site) can obviously rip off our stuff and not provide any sources at all, not even to the original Khmer news source. Bastards.

Maybe I'm wrong and Candace Sutton reads Khmer and had no trouble finding and translating the story like we did. :evil:

I'm sure that C. Sutton reads perfect Khmer and doesn't have anything better to do than to browse through all the Khmer news outlets 24/24.

You should have watermarked the pictures. Then they would have to give CEO credit.

No, probably only if they are beermarked pictures.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

What is notable (and interesting to me) with the reporting of this death, in my opinion, is actually the dearth of reporting in the local Cambodian press.

Beside the nkdnews.com article and a 3 minute clip on a morning edition of Hang Meas News TV there isn't any other mention on other news outlets of his death.

The only other website that ran this story that I've come across is nokorwat website which is the indepth version of nkdnews.com (and then Nokorwat website publishes as Nokorwat newspaper the following day)

hangmeasdaily.com the website of Hang Meas TV didn't publish an online article after running the story in their morning TV news, nor did they re-run the story in the afternoon news programs (that I noticed)
All the other big local media outlets (koh Santepheap, dap etc.) don't seem to have run this story. Not even the despicable arey-news.com or police website.

In the morning TV clip (which I won't link to) there were numerous reporters within the crime scene sticking their camera phones in etc.

Seems pretty likely to me that Laurent of Le West KTV and Western International paid them all of to keep this out of most local papers and websites.

I was thinking the owners didn't report it simple before they didn't have the "money shot."

That's very interesting Rama. Could you explain a bit more about what you have said for those of us who don't have much idea about the khmer news scene ? Why would it be kept "quiet" ?
And is there a reason why this would be an interesting news story for locals ? Isn't it possible that the accidental death of a barang is just not really "news" for most Khmer ?
Genuine questions. Khmer journalism intrigues me.

I agree with Anchor Moy. Even though it sometimes seems any barang who so much as farts gets in the news, this obviously wasn't deemed interesting enough to report.
