The gratitude lasted a month, he got a job through another relative for a well known logistics company, robbed the parcels and has now disappeared. Then he got not 1, but 2 (he came back) of the biggest ass whoopings I ever did see from one of his kin. It was painful to watch, yet I was shocked, but cheering inside as local Khmer justice was being served, I'd imagine it was like going to an 18th century public hanging or something.

Never a dull moment.


6 month sentence or you got him out after 6 months? To whom did your 3K go and how'd they "justify" an early release. Obviously we've all heard of this custom but I've always been interested in the nitty gritty of it. Asking for a friend :wink:

We've got a shit head cousin / family relative who's been banged up in Prey Sar a few times. He's a proper fuck up. One time he was sending us messages on Facebook messenger from his tablet in jail... Life can be much more comfortable with some cash. Well that was the first time he was in jail. The second time he was in jail, I don't think it was quite as comfortable because you know... he went back to fucking jail and his parents had spent enough first time round. He hasn't been back for a while so maybe being banged up rough worked a bit.

We don't know the extent of his spy work here, all we know for certain is that Ricketson is a convicted spy. He'll probably be returned to the Australian secret service after things quiet down.

YANGON (Reuters) - A Myanmar judge on Monday found two Reuters journalists guilty of breaching a law on state secrets and jailed them for seven years, in a landmark case seen as a test of progress toward democracy in the Southeast Asian country.

jesse to the rescue

“James has decided to submit for a royal pardon, which is essentially just a request for clemency, for mercy, to the King Norodom Sihamoni,” Mr Ricketson’s son, Jesse told the ABC’s 7.30.

I, for one, cannot wait for his prison memoir blog to be frantically hashed out once he gets back to Boganville.

James, don't let the door slap your ass on the way out. There was a piece about his mate David Fletcher in the news recently. He tried to appeal his sentence but it was upheld. Nobody even bothered posting it:

Ricketson out sooner than we expected. A Royal pardon is given by the King or just a flash term for someone who's been told to fuck off and die somewhere else?

:eyes: Eh? How the fuck does this work?

On Monday, prosecutor Duch Kimsorn said: “This prisoner did not commit the crime. The council should consider this in accordance with the law.” Mun Vimean Champa, Fletcher’s defence lawyer, agreed with the prosecutor.


The prosecuting and, obviously, the defending lawyers both tell the court he is not guilty but the verdict and sentence is upheld by the court? :roll:
