Investigation launched into Infant’s death

Officials investigating the death of an infant who allegedly died immediately after receiving a series of injections at a private clinic in Prey Veng Province’s Pea Reang district on November 20, said yesterday that the practice has since been shut down. En Ork, a Kampong Popil commune official, said she had visited the clinic yesterday after the Health Ministry ordered an investigation on Monday. “I went to see the clinic owner to ask for more information connected with the case, but unfortunately no one was in the clinic,” she said, adding that investigations were ongoing into the whereabouts of the former clinic’s owner. Heang Makara, the infant’s mother, has said her son was taken to the clinic suffering from pneumonia. She said she had originally filed a complaint against the clinic owner to police, which she later dropped in exchange for 3 million riels [about US$741] in compensation.
