Former clerk arrested for alleged fraud

A former provincial court clerk in Siem Reap province accused of impersonating higher officials in order to facilitate extortion faced fraud charges yesterday, court and police officials told the Post.

Siem Reap prosecutor Ti Sovinthal said that he had long ago requested that the Ministry of Justice strike Si Dy off the clerk registrar, because he had cheated several people in Siem Reap out of a lot of money.

“The reason that we asked for his name to be cancelled was because he always took some prosecutors’ names to use for getting money,” he said.

Sovinthal said he wasn’t aware of the exact details of how Dy had extorted what he termed “black money”.

Soun San, chief of police in Siem Reap town, said his officers arrested Dy on November 5, following an order from the provincial court, but said he could not discuss the matter in detail.

Dy could not be reached for comment.
