James Ricketson fundraises for poor
16 October 2018
Australian filmmaker James Ricketson, 69, aims to raise an initial $50,000 for a housing project in Cambodia, despite his conviction on espionage charges and deportation following a royal pardon.

Ricketson said after his release from prison in September that he started helping poor Cambodian scavengers many years ago and will resume again. He and three others started a fund-raising website “Family By Family”, hoping to initially raise $50,000.

He said before his arrest that he helped many families living at dump sites – some of whom had successfully moved away from their scavenging ways.

Ricketson’s daughter Roxanne Holmes – also a team member of the Family By Family project – said they were attempting to raise $50,000 for the families.

“I have been helping poor Cambodian families for 22 years because I love Cambodia and the Cambodian people, especially the poor. They deserve a chance to make a better life for themselves, and especially the children,” Ricketson said on Monday.

What a joke this moron is.

I don't know too much about him — is there proof he's corrupt, a liar, or just so grossly incompetent that it amounts to the same?

From what he's claiming on the GoFundMe, you might say he's some mixture of naive and brave, but the overall goal seems laudable.

Has anyone listened to his interview on the ABC with Phillip Adams?

Ricketson says he wasn't deported. He was just taken to the airport by force against his will and put on an aeroplane.

Adams and Ricketson are kindred souls, hence he didn't sound too silly in the interview.
