Woman in $250,000 ‘fraud’ case

A high-profile businesswoman was charged yesterday with cheating a high-ranking military official out of $250,000.

Khen Sovann, deputy chief of Phnom Penh Municipal Military Police, confirmed that the CEO and owner of XPP Investment Corporation, a 36-year-old who is referred to as Reachany, was sent to Prey Sar prison after being charged with fraud.

Sovann declined to discuss the details of the case.

Keo Mony, the investigating judge presiding over the case, could not be reached for comment yesterday.

A Phnom Penh military police officer who spoke on the condition of anonymity said Reachany’s arrest came after Sem Sovanny – who directs the centre for peacekeeping and mine clearing within the defence ministry – filed a complaint against her in court.

The officer alleged Reachany took the money from Sovanny in May, promising to secure him an economic land concession. The ELC never materialised but the money was not returned.
