Homeless Brit MARTIN CLEARY Arrested by Immigration Police in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Post by Anchor Moy » Sat Aug 19, 2017 10:28 pm

On 16 August 2017, at around midday, a British man identified as Martin Cleary from Yorkshire, England was taken into custody by immigration police in Phnom Penh. He appears to be in possession of no valid documents, without a fixed abode and believed to be living on the streets. He was arrested on immigration charges at the same time as 4 Nigerian and 4 Vietnamese men.

Funny how he was the only Brit to be arrested with 4 Nigerians and 4 Vietnamese.

And these are the Vietnamese. There is another thread on the Nigerians somewhere.

He does look spaced.

More like Michael Palin than Brian I'd say.

Is it Barry who lost his documents on the way back from Vietnam a few years back?

Hmmmm, I think he looks exactly like a British expat named Martin. Anyone agree/disagree? I am not 100% convinced it's him, but seems like it.
