Ingólfur Steinar Ingólfsson, an Icelandic traveler, was released from custody in Cambodia after spending two months in an immigration jail cell.
“I should have been free after a month, but they kept me in for an extra month because of the review on TripAdvisor,” says Ingólfur Steinar. He believes that the head of the institution (*in Siem Reap) where he had been in custody had kept him there for a longer time because of his relationship with the hotel that Ingólfur had stayed in the past.
Ingólfur was initially arrested because his visa had expired and he was said to have a debt account at the hotel where he had been staying. Ingólfur considered the hotel’s allegations to be based on misrepresentations and misconceptions and, in his custody, wrote a negative review of the hotel on TripAdvisor. Ingólfur believes that there is a connection between the hotel and the custody authorities, and he had been left inside for longer than needed out of revenge. DVICELAND
