Cambodian court may decide the future of three Russians arrested last week during a New Year celebration this Tuesday.

      Among them is millionaire Sergey Polonsky, founder of the development company Mirax Group now known as Potok.

      Polonsky is also the man punched in the face during a live broadcast by billionaire Alexander Lebedev, owner of the National Reserve Bank and several newspapers, including Britain's The Independent and Evening Standard.

      According to the local police, the Russians threatened 6 sailors with a knife and locked up in a cabin and a lavatory and then forced then to jump off the ship.

      The Russians who are facing up to three years in jail have denied the charges saying they were celebrating the New Year with fireworks on an uninhabited island. But then a patrol boat from a nearby military base arrived to check their papers, which they didn’t have, and took them away to a police station. According to the representative of the Potok company, it was a misunderstanding as the locals could speak only their native tongue and didn’t know a word in English or in Russian.
