A Phnom Penh businessman is claiming that documents listing him as the owner of an unlicensed recruitment agency were forged and is asking officials to clear his name.
Sun Seyha, who owns a pharmaceutical company called Tigon Pharma, said he was shocked to see documents on social media that named him as the owner of CJ Labour Supply shortly after the Ministry of Labour announced that it shut down the agency for allegedly lying about receiving a licence to send workers to Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan.
Seyha, who provided his company’s original tax document to The Post, said someone appears to have taken his pharmaceutical company’s tax certificate and modified it to make it look like he owns CJ Labour Supply.
The two documents appear to be identical except for the name of the company and its main business activity, which is “employment placement agency”.
The font for those two categories is bigger than the one used elsewhere on the CJ Labour Supply document.
“I hang the tax document at my office, and I did send it to some friends through Facebook Messenger so they could see it, so I don’t know whether that’s the problem – that someone really forged documents to damage my reputation,” Seyha said.
He said he has since filed a complaint to the Ministry of Interior asking them to find out who used his company’s licence to forge documents for CJ Labour Supply.
The ministry has divulged few details about how investigators found out about the unscrupulous agency or whether they know who is behind it.
Ministry of Labour spokesman Heng Sour could not be reached on Wednesday.
