Siem Reap: British Expat ADAM SCOTT and 7 Others Arrested in Marijuana Raids

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.

Hi all !

I could be wrong, but the 2 Khmer people on the first picture strongly look like the owners of an happy pizza restaurant near pub street.

I well known place for some long term expats to order a take away snack at 4:20.

Just saying...

Nice spot.

I dont understand why people allow themselves to be photographed in this way, why dont they simply refuse instead of letting themselves be belittled.
LOL, doh.

Jeez, could this be a harbinger of things to come for certain capital city pizzeria's?

I'm not ashamed to admit that I enjoy imbibing in the illicit puff on the odd occasion.

The only crime here appears to be the quality of the stuff. Looks about as good as Colombian from 40 years back!

Well, Khmer Times say here that Adam Scott is French. But they could be wrong. After all, they also say that the three MEN were sent to jail, and I presume they mean the two men and one woman. Adam Scott doesn't sound very French to me, but I could be wrong as well.

Court charges three over possession of marijuana
Siem Reap Provincial Court yesterday charged one Frenchman and two Cambodians over the possession of 1.6 kilograms of marijuana.

Brigadier General Oum Amara, chief of the Siem Reap provincial anti-drug police bureau, identified the accused as 35-year-old French tourist Adam Scott, 48-year-old grocery vendor Sim Bros, and 48-year-old grocery vendor Prum Neang.

He said Mr Scott was charged with drug use and possession while Mr Bros and Ms Neang were charged with drug possession.

Each suspect faces two to five years in prison if convicted, according to Brig Gen Amara, who said the three men had been sent to jail pending trial.

Captain Huy Saroeun, a Siem Reap provincial anti-drug police officer, said the men were actively selling dried marijuana to foreign tourists in the province.

The three were arrested on Saturday at around midnight at Mr Scott’s rental home in Traing village in Siem Reap city’s Slor Kram commune, according to Cap Saroeun.

Still full of seeds. If you want good weed you'd be out there with your magnifying glass checking the flowers.
