Real estate industry figure out on bail

Sung Bonna, director of the board of the Bonna Realty Group, was released on bail yesterday, two weeks after he was arrested for allegedly issuing a check with insufficient funds to another businessman, a Phnom Penh Municipal Court spokesman confirmed yesterday.

“The investigative judge decided to let the charged person, Sung Bonna, be released on bail according to his lawyer, but [he is] under the surveillance of the court. The investigative judge will continue the investigation of the case,” said court spokesman Ly Sophanna.

Bonna was arrested, charged and detained on June 10 for issuing a check worth $400,000 to wealthy businessman Keo Hun and his wife, Sok Tong, but Bonna’s account did not have the funds necessary to cover it. He was detained at Police Judiciary Prison on charges of fraud.

After the arrest, Sung Sina, Bonna’s brother and head of the appraisal department at Bonna Realty, insisted that the incident would have no effect on the company’s operations.

Bonna’s family and his lawyer could not be reached for comment yesterday.
