    It’s a pity that this blog has not more reports, because it’s one of the best of Cambodia with khmerization. I like your way of writing and originality.

THE OWNER OF THIS BLOG IS A PROFESSIONAL JOURNALIST (IT CAN BE EASILY PROVEN) AND THIS BLOG IS NOT A RELIGIOUS SPACE, HAS NOTHING TO SEE WITH BEING A PRIEST, AN AYATHOLA OR A DALAI LAMA). I DO NOT CALL MYSELF A ‘JOURNALIST’. IT IS CALLED BY MY STUDIES AND EXPERIENCE IN MEDIA IN COLOMBIA AND CAMBODIA. KEEP YOUR ENY FOR YOURSELVE.

    again a mistake in proper reporting.

    Mr. Guido was living in a house near the catholic curch of Sihanoukville, behind the Old Casino, and not in the Psa Leu area, which is approx.3 km far.

    He was sharing that home with other two volunteers.

    Mr. Ricciarini has not married any girl, at least officially. The girl who was living with him was simply his girlfriend.

    I would suggest to be more precise in reports like these to avoid misunderstandings and circulation of false or distorted information.

      Psar Leu area is not just the central market, but include also the area of the Catholic Church and the Upper Pagoda (Wat Leu). ‘Leu’ means in Khmer ‘upper’, thus ‘Psar Leu Area’ as used by the writer, is a correct location. Maybe just omit ‘Psar’ (market) and let ‘Leu area).

      I don’t find the news a distorted information. It’s just as happened. I am waiting more information about. I hope the blog will have a meeting with the police to give more information about this crude crime. We hope Cambodia will not lost safety for foreigners. Many of them are in the country giving support to our people.
