Rice dealer ‘cheated’ partner out of $30k

Phnom Penh Municipal Court charged a businessman yesterday after he was accused of cheating his business partner out of more than $30,000 in 2014.

Ou Viyuren, 31, was arrested on Sunday by municipal penal police in Chamkarmon district’s Boeung Trabek commune and charged with “breach of trust”, said Phnom Penh police officer Seng Darith.

“He was arrested in accordance with the municipal court prosecutor’s warrant to bring him for questioning after he was summonsed two times and failed to appear at court,” he said.

The allegations stem from a joint rice venture in 2014, according to Darith, who was unable to share further details regarding the case.

Phnom Penh Municipal Court vice prosecutor Meas Chanpiseth, who is in charge of the case, declined to comment.

The plaintiff and his lawyer were also unavailable for comment.
