A cheque bounces an ‘oknha’ to po­lice sta­tion

The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL -

A PUR­PORTED “oknha” was ar­rested in Phnom Penh on Tues­day night for be­ing worth a bit less than his hon­orific ti­tle might im­ply. Po­lice said the man had drafted a cheque for a mil­lion dol­lars to in­vest in the busi­ness of a fel­low ty­coon’s son, only to have the hefty cheque bounce. The bilked busi­ness­man filed a com­plaint, and cops in­vited the un­trust­wor­thy ty­coon down to the sta­tion be­fore put­ting him in de­ten­tion over his lack of funds.
