Parents: school head took money and ran

A private school director was arrested on Friday by Battambang police in cooperation with Preah Sihanouk police after scamming money from students and fleeing earlier this month.

Chet Vanny, deputy chief of the Battambang provincial police, said the director of Universe of Language, Long Polin, 30, had opened two schools – one in Battambang town and the other in Samlot district. “[Polin] collected money from nearly 200 registered students in the two locations, but after the students all paid their tuition, the director escaped to Preah Sihanouk province,” Vanny said.
