British Teacher MATTHEW WILLIAM WATKIN Arrested; Accused of Sexual Assault in Siem Reap, 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.

With these really fishy allegations it is pretty rough to mention his full name - in capitol letters. Just saying

His eyes are too close together.
...and thin lips. I'm not sure why, but I have always had a deep mistrust of people with thin lips and beady eyes which are too close together.
so you trust this guy? :D

I really hope for his sake that he's guilty. This would be terrible thing to happen to an innocent man.

He's exceptionally well dressed for his mug shot, did they give him advance warning?
This only gives a very good indication of the way you must dress, if you think that is exceptionally well-dressed
Not quite. It gives a very good indication of how the people in other mug shots I've seen posted were dressed.

Just to point out, he's been 'arrested' by Cambodian police, so whether or not he's guilty, it's in the legal system now, and more than just 'accusations.'

If Matthew William Watkin is found 'not guilty' or charges are dropped, we'll be sure to update the article.

ahh tried in the court of CEO

Everyone knows, even if he is later acquitted of all offenses/charges, he will be forever guilty online...
cause his name was mentioned.

The allegations sound more like grooming than assault. Maybe there is more to be added by the girls that they haven’t told the authorities yet. But I find that difficult to believe, but time will tell. Maybe the girls mother has an ulterior motive? Who knows but asking for a massage, kissing on the forehead and rubbing his beard on her face looks weird and inappropriate for sure. But what if he has had a long term paternal relationship with the girls? Raised them for so long they see him as a father figure and he treats them as daughters. Would that excuse or explain his seemingly inappropriate actions?

Who knows but there’s a lot we don’t know about the case and we do like to speculate, and then there’s the rule of law here and we do love a good witch-hunt.
