Koon Khmer identifies the ATM smasher as 50-year-old Norwegian tourist Gisle Reikvam.
Don't know why people think that machines work better when you bash the hell out of them. Maybe his card was stuck/swallowed.

It seems Gisle Reikvam from Norway has been causing trouble in Cambodia since at least 2013. I found this about him, and it's someone complaining that he assaulted them:

"Earlier today I was physically assaulted by this person. Beware of them: Gisle Reikvam, male, 45, Norway. Passport #28877588

He shoved me down and spit on me as I walked past him on the stairs at my guest house. No picture. I belive he is what we call in New York a bit shit crazy mother f*ucker.


They even posted his passport number, which makes it a confirmed identification on the wanker.

think hes pregnant too looking at the test, could be the cause of his anger, the thought of the struggle being a single father probably troubled him

So what happens next ? Does Gisle get a slap on the wrist and pay a donation to the police orphans' fund or what ? Go to jail ?
Illegal online gamblers get deported, and ATM-smashers get ... ?

Not ready with the pitchforks yet :mob: Just wondering. ATM-smashing seems to be the latest trend in the "foreigners behaving badly" series. Remember the good old days when foreigners getting naked was all the rage ? Nostalgia. :Bravo:
