Employee accused of embezzling $100,000

An employee of the So Ngoun transportation company is being questioned over the alleged embezzlement of more than $100,000 from the firm.

Police arrested Pen Sokunthea and her boyfriend, Roy Rom, on July 30 after the company filed a complaint alleging the duo had faked the signature of the firm’s deputy director general to steal the funds.

After being questioned at Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday, Rom was deemed uninvolved and released, company lawyer Touch Thirith said yesterday evening.

But Sokunthea, a sales officer for So Ngoun, remains detained for alleged breach of trust and faking documents and a signature.

“Deputy prosecutor Hing Bunthoeun questioned the suspects, and the case is now with the investigating judge for further questioning,” Thirith said.

The company uncovered the embezzlement in the middle of last month and filed a complaint to the Ministry of Interior on July 29.
