Any news on Mish

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.

He's the poster child of this forum so don't criticise, a con man with connections. " He way okay ", " Always liked his posts ", " Seemed genuine ". Couldn't pay a $10 bar bill so went home and got a gun because the peasants didn't realise how important he was.

It was the ultimate K440 apologists thread here on our very own higher standard CEO. A sad day for integrity for this forum.

Hopefully he'll be deported.

You can say what you like here on CEO Cowsh ^^^ as you just did.

Same as those of us who ever formed a bit of a virtual friendship, or kinship as an expat, across the ideological divide.
Or the class divide, or political divide, or whatever we do on a Saturday night divide.
We got the right to show a bit of loyalty in tough times too.

I earned my right to stick up for Mish by fiercely brawling with him on these pages about every single thing in the world.
We are two people who would normally detest each other. Part of us still does.
At least i did not cut him loose like others who just nodded their heads, or gave him a rep point, when he was ranting his right wing best.

It must be the 50% Irish in me blood. we do loyalty shit like that.
Loyalty to members of the tribe is the bottom line when they are facing flack from outsiders.
and for some of us, virtual or not, this a real community.

I certainly have a sense myself of who, no matter what i think of their politics or table manners, i would trust if the shit ever really did come down on all of us.

Loyalty is a wondrous thing.

Met him once or twice, nice enough guy.

Many who went off at him have also done stupid stuff, just haven't been caught.

Well said. Even though we came to Cambodia to be together but ended up being separated, I don't blame him and I know it was not his fault.
I too believe in loyalty(to my marriage to him) despite us being separated and having some upsets and differences in the past.

I chatted with him briefly after he got out, and he sounded fine. I can only imagine he didn't like all the attention he received online, so probably taking a huuuge break from the internet, which is understandable.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

Can't blame him really, not his finest hour. His various detractors on here certainly filled their boots at that time. It wasn't their finest hour either.

Glad he's out.

I can only imagine what an abject horror show the Cambodian justice system is.

We're all a patchwork of good and not so good qualities. And I'm sure most of us would admit to being works-in-progress ourselves.

What I liked about Mish's CEO presence was his positivity towards Cambodia and Cambodians.

At times I find myself sliding into resentful cynicism about my adopted home and its citizens. Reading his positivity would help me check myself and I was grateful for that.

Has he been released on bail pending trial, or released otherwise? Would be interesting to know how this case has been adjudicated, if at all.
