Mate, if someone stole from me and the court system thought it was serisous enough to award him with a criminal record, I don't know if I would classify him as "not a bad person". Hey, but that's just me.

Hello Kiloperico:)

As far as I have heard from others your friend would not have much trouble in Europe. Unless he is a murderer on the run or a known terrorist the customs and immigration wont care much about his criminal record. I got a message from somebody who was asking here a while ago the same question as u are after her trip to Europe. She said she had no problem and nobody seemed interested in checking her criminal record.
I think if your friend wants to work and live in Europe then the criminal record may possibly become more of a problem.

Hi,

I think you will have no problem with Asia as well. Maybe a little bit hard for Japan because of their New Immigration Procedures.

true enough.. just make sure he understand that third world prisons and human rights don;t get a lot of awards in most of the world.
