Workers defrauded: Company complaint on woman

A WOMAN has been accused of using the name of an investment group to cheat prospective migrant workers out of more than US$8,000 and promising them work in Thailand.

Njek Sothea, company director of the SKMM Investment Group, who supply workers to Thailand, Malaysia and Japan, said the group filed a complaint with the Labour Ministry accusing Pol Khmea of using their name and documents to cheat workers out of between $160 to $200 each.

“Mrs Khmea took our legal documents from our company for workers to gain their trust and take money from them,” she said. “We complained to the Ministry of Interior police to ask her to stop her illegal activities, and to repay the money to the workers and return our documents.”

She said if the matter is not resolved soon, the company would file a complaint with the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

But Pu Huy, director of the Seeking Employment for Workers bureau at the Ministry of Labour, said the accusations made by the group were false.

“The matter has already been settled,” he said.

Pol Khmea could be reached for comment yesterday.
