British Expat Philip Powell Dies in Sihanoukville on his Honda Air Blade After Crashing into Cement Wall

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.

It sounds like all the Khmer media has his name wrong, as per usual.

According to his ID that was found on him at the time of his fatal accident, his name is Philip Lee Powell.

Very unfortunate, and may he rest in peace.

The ability of Khmer media to get English names wrong is astonishing.
DAP news here http://bit.ly/2egGLBa manage to get his name wrong and the model of the motorcycle wrong too, "Air black"...even when both the victim's name is clearly visible on his ID and the motos model name is on the side of the bike in the photos.
Incredible.

Truly unbelievable. :facepalm: :facepalm:



It's made it to the press back in the UK:

"A MAN from Poole has died following a motorcycle crash in Cambodia.

Phil Powell's body was discovered by Cambodian Police officers on Saturday morning in the Sihanouk Province, on the very western edge of the country."

He was managing Cozy Bar on 136 before he moved to Sihanoukville according to a post on TOF.
