BANGKOK, November 12, 12:59 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian businessman Sergei Polonsky, accused of grand theft in Russia, is kept in a pre-trial detention center of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, awaiting a court's decision, head of the consulate department of the Russian Embassy in Cambodia Pavel Seskanov told Itar-Tass.
