Convicted American Pedophile JAMES ALLAN MORROW Arrested in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

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.

It says he is a american but not were he committed the crimes?

Also he could have left the country before he was wanted by the police for murder-charges.

We simply need to wait for more information.

Pedophile and murderer? What is your basis for writing that? It's pretty far fetched.
Straight from the police.
Oh that's nonsense. It's probably from the police to a crappy local newspaper who wrote it up and then you guys gave it a crappy translation. He's not a murderer. Top bloke all the way.
I assure you it's not a CEO news translation error. A Cambodian police official said he'd been arrested today (Sunday, March 31) over murder and pedophilia. They were first hesitant to release his picture, and still haven't released his name or elaborated on why he was arrested beyond murder and pedophilia.

I agree it's not clear what exactly is going on, but it's not a translation issue on our part, that I guarantee you.

I guess we'll have to wait until more details are released before we know more.

Morrow was arrested March 11, 2011, sentenced to ten years in prison for pedophilia, then sentenced to an additional three months for drug use in prison.

He should be locked up for another two years.

Did someone let him out early in exchange for cash, and he resumed living/teaching in Cambodia, and then did someone else or Uncle Sam say "What the fuck?" and re-arrest him?

Total speculation here, but maybe he killed someone IN Prey Sar Prison.

That would make more sense, considering all the facts as of right now.

That would explain why the images are taken at the prison, because as far as I recall, when people are arrested, their first pics are taken at the scene of their arrest, or in front of the courts, when they are making an appearance.

That could also explain why a US agent is there, as he's there as James Morrow's routine assistance once he's already in the system.

It would also suggest that maybe he hasn't been released early, and is still locked up in Prey Sar Prison, and is only being led out to head to court.

If this is accurate, maybe that's why police would say he's in trouble for pedophilia (before) and also murder (now), but I agree it's all clear as mud right now.

No idea if that speculation is accurate, but it would at least explain some aspects of this unusual arrest. I really don't recall anyone's first arrest pics being at Prey Sar, and this could at least explain that. <shrugs>

Haha, yes, those were my own words describing where I thought those images were taken, and that's how it 'appeared' to me, but it's been correctly pointed out by another CEO member that's it's clearly Prey Sar Prison.

Updated.

I would kind of expect to see a fun balls playpen behind those walls:

These images were taken in front of Prey Sar Prison.

James Allan Morrow has previously been arrested in Cambodia over pedophilia and while he was serving his sentence for those charges he was charged with using meth in prison.

If that dude already spent 7 years at Prey Sar, he doesn't look so bad for it. At least hes's not sitting naked while someone pressure washes him and scrubs him down with a brush on a pole with his dangling bits laying in the puddle.

The case of James Allan Morrow's arrest is still not clear, and Police Major General Viseth Tith Advisor to the Ministry of Interior has not made any further comments about it.
