Deputy prosecutor Meas Chanpiseth said Bun Sokunny and Yun Nara, who co-owned Asian Security Company with more than 50 security guards in their employ, were arrested by police last week in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district after employees filed a complaint.

“They were arrested by police while they were trying to move their goods and other materials from their rental house. They wanted to escape from the place,” he said.
