It's possible the embassy flat out lied to you. It's possible the embassy person mistakenly thought the FBI was involved when they weren't.sniper_m4 wrote:If i have no federal charges and no extraditable warrants. Why would the FBI be involved? I specificly asked the embassy if the FBI was involved and they said no.
I know you're not a lawyer, but a better question would have been "Were any Anerican law enforcement officers involved" or "Was the embassy's (legal? security) attache involved etc.? It's very possible that the FBI itself wasn't there, but someone working with the FBI was there. The embassy official may have said "No" to FBI but would have said "Yes" or "no comment" if you uttered other magic words.
Follow up with them. Ask what offices/personnel were involved. Ask if any American law enforcement personnel were involved before, during or after your detention. Ask what, if, any communications occurred between embassy or American law enforcement authorities and Cambodian authorities before you were detained or after you were detained. Ask if this had something to do with suspicion that you were a different person with a criminal record. It did.
