Australian STEVE MORRISH Arrested in Phnom Penh for Breaking Japanese Man's Nose in Drunken Street Fight

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.

Morrish was a detective in the Victorian police force
Based in Footscray.
Footscray is one rough area,he would definitely know how to handle himself.

Some posters have suggested he was involved in some sort of police corruption.I cant find any evidence online to support these allegations.
If he was the media would have been all over it.

The media are very quiet at the moment. Nothing happened, so let's move on.

A lawyer would just eat that up...public, almost impossible to deny culpability, and extremely hard to prove.

Since it was posted on Facebook, probably governed by international law or law of the parties. I think both AUS and NZ follow the principle that the only defence is truth.

Kind of unwise thing to post, imho.

Great place I used to go there when I was back in Melbourne, for phở bò and to chat in Vietnamese to the waitresses. But that was over 15 years ago. I think it's gone downhill a bit since then :D

People might be confusing Morrish with James McCabe, another former Victorian cop who now works in Cambodia.

McCabe went to jail in Australia for stealing drugs and money from drug dealers.
