Ten people suspected of scamming others by posing as doctors at a local garment factory and as assistants to Prime Minsiter Hun Sen’s son Hun Manet were arrested in Kampong Speu last week, Military Police said yesterday.
Kong Sotharin, deputy director of investigations for the National Military Police, said six of the suspects posed as doctors in a garment factory and demanded money from people in exchange for getting them a job at the factory.
He said four other suspects in a separate case pretended to be assistants to Hun Manet, a general, and took money from people in Odong and Thpong districts with the promise of procuring cadet jobs.
Military Police from Kampong Speu and Kandal provinces confiscated counterfeit medical certificates, fake military uniforms, a handgun and computers from the suspects, according to Sotharin, who said several admitted to counterfeiting documents and soldier identity cards.
The first six will be sent to Kampong Speu Provincial Court and the four who posed as military officials will be sent to military court, Sotharin said.
