Migs, I’m not so sure Cambodian courts will agree with you on the application of American law here. It’s how technology works but the court is a gamble (remember what time it is). Last I checked your server was actually in Singapore hosted by a US company. Regardless, you are here, run the website from here, type and moderate usually from here, you target Cambodia and write about people in Cambodia. It can easily seem like Cambodian laws should apply. I guess this is the risk you don’t take when you live in Saudi. But you live here, have strong ties to here and probably wish to stay, yes? You’re at their mercy.

I know it’s funny to send TPB style FU emails referring to dead posters, but you should lawyer up and let them do the FU-ing with stamps and letterheads.

Jewsbury doesn’t need to pay to make the lawyer pursue a defamation case. It’s a criminal matter and the state compensates whether he wins or loses and with a profit share deal with Jewsbury he may think he can get something.

Buckle up and fuck Jewsbury and his bullshit.

What? The Cambodian government pays lawyers to file defamation claims whether they win or lose?

Is there no compensation for a lawyer of a lost criminal case? There is where I come from. Normally the losing party pays i.e. the state in a criminal case.

Is it to late to get that Brett Kavanaugh fellow to defend us ?

Anyone who likes beer that much sounds good to me.

If defamation is a criminal matter, why would the accuser/alleged victim engage a private lawyer to pursue the case?

If Jewsbury wished to see someone charged with a physical assault on him, he wouldn't go to a lawyer to get them charged with criminal assault, he'd go to the police and they would process the allegation?
So why would he go to a lawyer to press a case of criminal defamation and not the police?

All good questions. I would guess this is another one or Jewsbury’s get rich quick scams. The legal proceedings threatened with in the letter probably mean “we will call the cops” in practice.

You can verify the claim that it’s a criminal matter with this protest letter from CCHR urging Cambodia to decriminalize defamation with extra info added.

What would he say in court? “I illegally took drugs and overstayed a number of visas, among other crimes, but my mum’s feelings were hurt about it so I deserve $50,000”?

This kind of seems like blackmail or extortion - if an actual crime took place: “pay me or I’ll go to the cops”.

Has Jewsbury refunded the money he "borrowed" to a number of third parties yet?

What's his current position in the Airbnb South East Asian division, is he still running it ?

There's no way that clown would take chances in a real court of law.

So under what name will he bring proceedings?

Shouldn’t it be illegal to impersonate (and thus defame) a royal king?

Well, it is not my first threatening letter from a Yahoo Lawyer.

You can kill someone and pay a few grand in this country and get away with it... and this guy wants $50,000 for a few online posts? Who is this clown?
