Police said Thursday they are investigating the possibility of a third suspect who has been implicated in a fraud and forgery case over a mining deal, for which a Cambodian businessman and a Chinese associate are already awaiting trial. The Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday charged Al Romny, 41, the chairman of ACICA Group, and Chinese national Chin Mongxin, 45, with fraud and using forged documents after an unknown complainant claimed they had lost $810,000 to the pair in a deal to purchase a mining license in Mondolkiri province.
