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.

Really? Lambert Struik is back in Cambodia as a free man having changed his name from Stefan. His customers in Belgium don't mind paying for it, and his customers are mostly kids and families.

Counter me with examples?

He could just start calling himself Mark E. Smith, and he'd be on page 10 of the internet where no-one looks. Physicist.

UPDATE: Smith has returned to the UK and been put on the sex offenders register.

A former teacher who was found guilty of molesting a five-year-old girl while working in Cambodia has been told to register on the sex offenders register, but insists he is not guilty.

Mark Smith was convicted of an indecent sexual act against a minor at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on March 22 this year.

Smith, who lives at Cotoneaster Court, insisted at the hearing at Great Yarmouth Magistrates’ Court that he would: “Prove his innocence and overturn the conviction.”

He can't really, his 3 month window to appeal the guilty verdict in Cambodia is up.

Wait a minute, I thought poster sousadeyy said Smith was "cleared of all charges" and that reports of his conviction and suspended sentence are fake news? Why would the English courts say he's a convicted pedophile, and why would Smith say he wants to overturn the conviction, if he was cleared of all charges and never convicted?

This must all be fake news.
