Security firm owners face salary complaint

The owners of a security company were questioned at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday on complaints that they had not paid their employees for three months.

Deputy prosecutor Meas Chanpiseth said Bun Sokunny and Yun Nara, who co-owned Asian Security Company with more than 50 security guards in their employ, were arrested by police last week in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district after employees filed a complaint.

The pair had been questioned by the court yesterday but had not been charged, he said.

A Por Sen Chey district police officer said the two men were arrested while apparently making a bid to leave town.

“They were arrested by police while they were trying to move their goods and other materials from their rental house. They wanted to escape from the place,” he said.
