Cambodia jails SA man

Article By: Imraan KaroliaMon, 28 Sep 2009 07:42A South African man is behind bars in Cambodia after a freak accident in which his friend died.

The two holidaymakers collided while riding on jet skis at a water park 10 days ago.

Cape Town resident Paul Hutchins died instantly and his Pretoria friend Andre Bester was subsequently arrested by Cambodian police.

The charges against him are unclear.

Bester's father, who flew to the country after hearing about the incident, said legal processes were underway.

"Andre is in good spirit and we're waiting for a bail hearing to take place on Tuesday and we’re hoping he’ll be out on bail. I'm just hoping to get my son out of jail and back into our country."
