Phnom Penh Municipal Court charged a gas company executive yesterday with stealing $150,000 from his employer between 2014 and 2017.
Ly Sothy, a police officer with the Interior Ministry’s Penal Police Department, identified the accused as Sin Daravuth, 30, chief of country marketing for Great Way Global Trading Co.
He was charged with breach of trust.
Mr Daravuth was arrested Monday after the court issued a warrant for his arrest. He is being sued by his former employer.
Mr Daravuth was first employed by Great Way Global Trading as a marketing officer in 2012. His good behaviour and commitment led the company’s owner to promote him as head of marketing in 2014.
He was in charge of collecting money from the company’s clients in 24 cities across the country.
Between 2014 and his arrest, the accused stole a total of $150,000 from the company by producing fake income and expenditure reports.
