Man learns not to cross savvy mother-in-law

A 77-year-old woman is suing her son-in-law, aged 50, for trying to sell her land out from under her to a wealthy businessman.

She claims she had previously tried to sell the land, which she valued at $1 million, herself, but found no takers.

She enlisted her daughter’s husband to seek out buyers.

Unfortunately, the rapscallion wrote up a fresh land title in his own name, faking both her signature and the commune chief’s, she claims.

Por Sen Chey district court summonsed the alleged land-snatcher for questioning on April 6.
