Couldn't find his Facebook account, but found this:

"Australian Hugh (Robertson?)This leech stole from me directly $60. I can attest to that 100% Ontop of that, and I understand the burden of proof is on me here, he contrived some muggings about us. I have been in cambodia about 3 years and never been mugged. Suddenly with him I am mugged a couple of times within a day or so. He knows Khmer so uses that for full leverage when plying these scams. I am happy to give details about this scams with private chat if you are in doubt. Ironically he took this picture with my phone when my back was turned. Like Matt he's overstayed his Visa by years. His motivation to steal however is drugs. He hangs around Sorya mall/square in PP. You've been warned! (update: Huw arrested in Sinville and Matt OD'ed in Kampot.)"

The war on drugs continues,as much as this drug is disruptive the answer is not to lock up small time users and suppliers.
Legalize it and let them smoke to their hearts content. I think it would reduce theft rates and free police for more important issues .

The news was briefly discussed in a household in Siem Reap and a woman gave her considered opinion:

"In a good law country they behave very good. In a mess country the behave very mess."

Fuck off! This is meth, not mary jane!...Have you seen the effects of this poison, not only to the users but to their families, friends and society in general? This shit is pure evil and needs to be stomped out.

Anyone dealing needs to be taken off the streets, but I agree that the cops need to start actively going after the big fish, unfortunately the big fish in this region are usually untouchable high ranking officials in the govt/police/mil.
