Englishman MARK SMITH (Golden Bridge International School Vice Principal) Arrested in Cambodia for Child Sex Crimes

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.

It’s usually handed to him by the court. If you go to jail in Cambodia there will be a paper.

Mark, post the paper.
Mark's playing dumb. "There are no papers, no one told me anything, I don't know what happened, I don't know why I was arrested or what the outcome of the case was or how I got out of jail."

That’s fine, but it discredits his defense that it would be a CPP plot. There’s no credibility going from not knowing to knowing for certain.

He can play dumb all he wants. If he wants people to believe him he’s going to need something better than “I don’t know”.

In the unlikely event that the CPP even cared about some 2-bit school I'm pretty sure there would be numerous ways to close it down without resorting to some Machiavellian plot that traumatised a Khmer child...and one thing that a few people are forgetting...the school is still open.

He was arrested, detained, found guilty and sentenced. To blame APLE for any involvement is a pathetic attempt to whitewash this guy.
I've gotta agree with tg.

So Mark is back in England with his two kids. Cleared of all charges.

What does that say about Aple who were so quick to boast about how they helped catch and convict a paedophile and happily shared news articles left right and centre.

Scumbags.
Why would you say he was "cleared of all charges"? He was sentenced. A sentence generally follows a finding of guilt, via a trial or a plea of guilty. He was sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay a fine. The court suspended the two year sentence.

In short, he got a light sentence for sexually abusing a child in a corrupt country with lax law enforcement known to be a haven for Western pedophiles. He wasn't "cleared of all charges" by any stretch of the imagination.
Wrong, that was what was falsely reported in the media.

Mark Smith has a new profile photo on his Facebook page.

It appears that everyone, including Mark Smith, agrees that he was convicted of sexually assaulting a child. Only sousadeyy claims that this was false reporting by the media and that he was "cleared of all charges."

He's not doing a very good job of sweeping this under the rug.

His name has been in all the English and British tabloids. He is "Pedo guy", for as long as he lives now.

I doubt there's any way to sweep it under the rug.
If he's actually innocent, that's terrible.

If he is a pedo, that's great, as it means he will be scrutinized and caught when he offends again.

It's 2018, here he's pedo guy until the English departments legally change his name and he resumes his teaching career in a climate where nobody knows who "Mr. Smith in Cambodia" is. Chances are that even in Cambodia he would go incognito with a new name in a year or five, whenever the big flush of Whitey occurs.
