A man from Kampot province claimed yesterday that he paid Phnom Penh recruitment firm Philimore Cambodia nearly 2 million riel (about US$488) for the return of his son, whom he suspected had developed mental problems after working for three months at a factory in Thailand. Khoun Sophal, father of 27-year-old Khoun Akkara, said that his son looked “crazy” and ran from crowds. “My son says ‘don’t arrest me’ when he sees people coming toward him and refuses to eat food we give him because he says it is poisoned,” he said. Philimore director Sok Chanpheakdey said the firm would send Khoun Akkara to hospital. “We will take legal action if we find that he got problems from this [factory],” he said.
