Another Homeless Brit on Riverside in Phnom Penh, Cambodia Claiming To Have Lost Passport, Money, Etc (VIDEO)

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.

Well, he sounds British. Telling locals he needs money and the police won't help him.

The police won't help him ... what, exactly?

Well I think he said that he was robbed on the riverside and lost his money and passport and now the police won't help him. The part about the cops sounds plausible...

For some reason you see very few of these homeless Western tourist types anywhere else. SEA seems to attract them like flies to shit, so sadly I'm always a bit cautious about their spin on the story.

Ah, okay - I missed that entirely. Poor bugger doesn't look like a career bum. My father had PTSD issues and chose to spend a lot of his life like that - bit of a trigger for me.

I wonder if any part of that is because there are other/better mechanisms for caring for people in difficult circumstances elsewhere.

If anyone happens to run into him again ask him if he wants help connecting with his embassy - I can't give him cash but I'll give him some advocacy and see if we can't get him some help.

I don't think the fucker needs any help! He is doing exactly what he wants, and succeeding.

Yep, that's why I said "ask."
