Casino case

The Singaporean owners of Phnom Penh's casino boat, which is run by Naga

Resorts, filed a petition with the Appeal Court on December 4 to take back the vessel.

Lawyer David Chanaiwa said his client was also seeking $5.2 million in damages and

unpaid rent. A court in Singapore awarded the case to his client a year ago, but

that decision was not recognized by the Cambodian court. Chanaiwa said in May 2001

the National Assembly passed an international agreement recognizing foreign arbitration

decisions. The ship was leased to Punca Rahmat to operate the Naga Resorts casino.
