The trial of Australian James Ricketson continues. Here’s an updated wrap from yesterday:… More questioning this morning, concluding statements scheduled for this afternoon.
Judge Ros Piseth is questioning Ricketson about his finances. Judge asks if he has a receipt for the $80,000 funding he got for the documentary “Sleeping with Cambodia”. Ricketson said all his financial records are in Australia.
Ricketson said he received about half a million each for two film projects, Biva and Backpackers Australia. He also received $20,000 from Al Jazeera for “Little Booksellers of Phnom Penh.” Judges also ask him about inheritance.

I didn't realize its relevance until I mentioned it to my partner, who's a freelance journalist based in PNH, we got stunned by the amount of beans spilled by @phnompenhpost Executive EIC, Joshua Purushotman.
So apparently, we were in a place at Street 163, chilling. We heard these guys from the next table we were seated the words "Post" "Tayseng". We didn't mind at first but when this Joshua guy started to vent and air out his personal grudges to the quoted above, interest fired.
Joshua, appeared to be drunk and tactless, about how unfair the treatment of "Post". We assumed, he meant the @phnompenhpost. So there, that his responsibilities do not correspond with his pay and he's overworked but underpaid. Ironically from the EIC himself. Sounds terrible.

Now, let's deal with @Liam_Cochrane "story" AKA fake news.

Breaking it down here:
1. Loopholes
2. Evidences
3. Serious accusations against court

1. Loopholes - from the pronoun confusion to unverified email recipient. Where are you really taking us, @Liam_Cochrane? Can't help but question @abcnews' credibility as to why they chose to publish such article with baseless information. Wrong move there, ABC.

2. Evidences - Mr. Liam, do you mind providing us with real and convincing details to back up your claims? I'd be happy to discuss that with you. Assuming, you really have. Whoops! Your "sources" won't surely mind the protection you mentioned.

POST UPDATES: Eyes here, @phnompenhpost staff!!!

1. Last Wednesday's meeting, Bill told us the management is DISPOSING POST. He also mentioned that the negotiations with potential buyers are ongoing.

LIE!!! The negotiations are all done. In fact, POST IS SOLD!

2. Little did they know, the foolish EIC Kim Song, already blabbered to all staff members that @phnompenhpost is already sold to a particular buyer. Another fact from him, most meetings happened outside the country.

3. I hope you're reading carefully. Yes, Kim Song, is the source of every information leaking. Actually, remember the leaks on tax? That's him! He even managed to get that GDT letter because I influenced him to do so. What a fool.
