'Magic diamond' man still on the run

A WOMAN is suing a man in Battambang province who vanished with her daughter and two other women in July after selling 57 people fake diamonds he claimed were magic.

Battambang Police Chief Kong Sokhorn said that they had tried to find the alleged swindler but have not had any luck.

"We are not sure of the whereabouts of the women who were abducted by him, but it is our duty to find them," he said.

Chheun Seun from Oddar Meanchey province said that she has repeatedly called for police help.

"The police still cannot find him and my daughter up to today."
