Bonna remains under the radar for the moment

It has been two months since the shock arrest of real estate tycoon Sung Bonna of Bonna Realty Group over an alleged fraudulent cheque case with renowned businessman Keo Hun.

Bonna was subsequently released on bail two weeks later, on June 23.

Earlier this week, Post Property spoke via phone with Bonna’s staff to ask whether or not the scandal had significantly impacted on the company’s day-to-day operations.

While it was last reported on June 30 that senior staff Sung Sina said he was uncertain when Bonna would return to work, the founder of one of the largest real estate companies in the Kingdom had actually resumed his work duties just one week after his release on bail.

“Everyone is definitely happy that he has come back to work, because his presence ensures that the company’s standards and regulations are maintained,” Pen Sokea, senior valuation manager at Bonna Realty Group, told Post Property.

“Even though the company can work well without him, as evident from the two weeks that he was imprisoned, his return has shown that the company is and will continue to go strong.”

As for the impending case of the bounced cheque, Sokea declined to give further comments, explaining that Bonna is laying low for the time being before a planned reappearance in the public sphere to address the matter himself.

“Bonna will go public again either in September or October, and that is when more details will be given about the initial matter at hand.”
