More than 20 families living next to an ice factory in Tuol Kork district have accused district officials of ignoring their complaints over ammonia fumes they say are leaking from the plant. Heng Mony, who has lived in the area bordering Boeung Kak lake for 23 years, said the noxious odours are causing health problems among neighbourhood residents. "The ammonia released by the factory has a bad effect on our health. I get headaches and have colds," he said. Heng Mony added that the villagers lodged their first complaint with City Hall two months ago but have not received a response. "We will continue to complain," he said. Van Sarath, chief of Boeung Kak 2 commune, said he had already solved the problem once, but that the fumes returned last week. "We will hold a meeting about this on Monday [today]," he told the Post.
