Man charged for impersonation

A 42-year-old man was charged yesterday with impersonating a personal adviser to Prime Minister Hun Sen to protect his farm in Battambang province, according to Im Bunny, police official at the Phnom Penh Municipal Police.

Sok Sanh, 42, a villager living in Treng commune, was arrested on Sunday in Phnom Penh in connection with using the name of Seng Teang, a personal adviser to Hun Sen in charge of adoption services.

The arrest followed a complaint filed by Seng Teang with the Battambang police alleging Sok Sanh was using his identity.

Sok Sanh had posted a sign on his property in Treng commune which read: “This property belongs to Seng Teang, personal advisor to Premier Hun Sen” to ward off an encroaching mineral company.
