Star sued for contract breach

CAMBODIAN pop singer Meas Soksophea has been sued for over US$50,000 by a German-based NGO for allegedly breaching a contract by refusing to sing at a benefit concert.

Kry Sok Y, deputy prosecutor at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, said Meas Soksophea – best known for the hits I am sorry and 1,000 nights – appeared for questioning on Monday of last week in connection with a complaint lodged by Doung Channimol, president of the Support Association for the Ethical Education of Children in Cambodia.

Doung Channimol submitted a complaint to the court in September of last year accusing Meas Soksophea of failing to sing at a fundraiser in Germany, and demanding €36,960 (US$51,389) in compensation.

Meas Soksophea could not be reached for comment, but her brother Meas Sokrattanak denied the accusations.

He said Meas Soksophea had been contracted to sing at four events in Europe and was supposed to be paid after each appearance.

After completing three of the events without receiving payment, she called it quits, he said.

“I asked her to return back to Cambodia though the programme was not fully complete yet because I do not want my sister to suffer further deception when she got nothing for her previous performances,” he said.
