Id Theft: Corruption claims in 'fake' email

Id Theft
AN EMAIL message purportedly written by a provincial manager for the Cambodian Women's Crisis Center (CWCC) accuses the NGO's leaders of corruption and mismanagement, but CWCC Executive Director Say Vathany said Sunday that the message's author was in fact an imposter who gained access to the provincial manager's email account. The message, sent to various media outlets Friday evening from the email account of Suong Sopheap, the Banteay Meanchey province manager for the CWCC, accuses Say Vathana of firing 30 employees without cause in late June and failing to offer severance pay. The letter, signed "Sopheap", also mentions a "rumour" that Say Vathany and her finance officer, Sun Sambath, have been embezzling CWCC funds. Say Vathany told the Post on Sunday that there was "no truth" to the letter, adding that the embezzlement allegations were "ridiculous". Though she acknowledged laying off 28 employees in June, she said this was done purely for budgetary reasons. She said she was unsure of who might have gained access to Suong Sopheap's email account.
