Forgetful British Expat Ian Hammond Arrested in Sihanoukville for Living Illegally in Cambodia for 2 Years

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.

Does anyone know what happens to people typically that have to go to immigration for illegal residence, visa overstay etc. ? Do they send them back right away or turn them over to their embassy or torture them by making them stay in some kind of immigration jail for a long time like they do or atleast they used to do in Thailand. Back in the 80's they were many overtayers caught and had been in the immigration jail for years of all nationalities.
Detained, squeezed for some cash (I'd imagine), then deported.
