British Expat Held Hostage by his Cambodian Lover's Family in Phnom Penh

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The latest update from Luke about the ordeal:

"They weren't trying to run him down, just trying to follow him.

You're right of course though, if someone else's experience don't match your own then they're probably lying. Because we all know that everyone has exactly the same experiences in life, and they always match expectations, and organised crime doesn't exist because it's 2018.

The opinions of all 10-15 people who listened to him last night were that he was telling the truth, this was backed up further by the fact that he didn't steal anything from my house, paid for his own ticket home and would have nothing at all to gain from lying. However, you should probably just rely on your own third hand speculation, that is based purely on what I just told you. That would be the most reasonable and intelligent thing to do in this situation.

What a fuckwit..'

Me and my friends at The Flicks believed him so you’re a fuckwit if you don’t.

Got to love a good old ad populum. How many believed Jewsbury?

I’m so convinced right now.

Someone who identified themselves as 'Frank Willing' has reached out to CEO, saying they want this topic deleted, as it puts him and his family in danger. I tried to get him to explain how this discussion puts him or his family in danger, but he hasn't come up with anything logical.

Seems a bit paranoid, to say the least. He also said he made it back home and is safe with his family.

WTF?

Just checked the ELLPP Facebook group and the thread’s not there. Guess it was taken down ?

Happy to hear that the jury of straight thinking acquitted him. All the reasons you stated are not only irrelevant, but feeble.
