Fraud case: Former Chea Sim adviser back in court

Fraud case
Chan Kosal, former adviser to Senate president Chea Sim, was back at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday for further questioning regarding fraud allegations - involving hundreds of millions of dollars - his defence lawyer said.

Attorney Tep Mony Cheath said Chaing Sinath, an investigating judge for the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, had questioned his client about, among other things, the address of his Koy Sambath Cambodia Company.

“The court said it had not found his company’s address as he has identified it to the court before. So he was asked again by the court to tell this,” Tep Mony Cheath told the
Post yesterday.

He added that the tempor-ary office for the Koy Sambath Cambodia Co. was located at house number 71, Street 7, Tuol Sangke commune, Russey Keo district, in Phnom Penh.

Speaking of the charges against Chan Kosal, Tep Mony Cheath said his client was a victim.

“He is an innocent person. He had never hurt any person or cheated any company.”

Chan Kosal; the Senate president’s protocol chief, Pheng Kunthea Borey; former cabinet member Khieu Bora; and lieutenant general Ponlork Ho, were arrested by police in September in connection with forgeries and fraud involving at least 51 foreign companies.
