Accomplice fingerspartner for counterfeit

A MAN accused of circulating $50,000 in counterfeit United States bank notes was implicated by his alleged accomplice at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday.
Suong Sovannary, 48, who was convicted in April and sentenced to eight years in jail for circulating counterfeit cash, told the court yesterday he had received the fake notes last year from the accused, 51-year-old Kak Soeng. Kak Soeng was absent from court yesterday but his lawyer, Kao Sopheaktra, denied the allegations, claiming there was no proof or witnesses to verify the prosecutions case.
Presiding judge, Ker Sakhorn, said Tuesday a verdict would be announced on July 21.
