letter from David Vaughan - a man who knew Graham Cleghorn in
Cambodia, and became his friend. He
discusses corruption and life in Cambodia
On girls in Graham's restaurant: " Graham of course had young women working in his restaurant, which seemed to be part of the attraction, as was the western food he served and his friendly, helpful manner. ...... Traditional Cambodian society considers girls working at places like Graham's to be prostitutes. I can assure you the Brothels were already well established all over Siem Reap and Graham's place wasn't one of them. These girls were obviously poor and from surrounding villages. They were given room and board. Having watched other young girls being sold to brothel owners, I considered the ones working for Graham quite fortunate."
On enemies of Graham: "Graham’s association with certain high level ANKI (Royalist Faction Army), KPLNAF (Gen Lon Nols fighters) and certain members of the Royal Family that he assisted, gave some protection to him during the civil war period. Once the threat of armed forces against them left, the CPAF turned it's attention to the white devils that were against them."
