Staff complaint: Corruption alleged at hospital

Staff complaint
About 90 staff members of the National Maternity and Child Health Centre filed a complaint with First Lady Bun Rany on Friday, alleging corruption within the hospital.

The complaint, obtained by the Post, accuses hospital director Kum Kanal of improper treatment of employees and      alleges that two accountants    had stolen millions of riel from client service fees.

It also states that management at the centre did not “value women”.  “The female staff work hard  . . . but the male managers don’t come to work,” the complaint says.

Kolnou Sokhalay, head of purchasing at the hospital, claimed on Friday that Kum Kanal had fired her last month after she complained to him about accountants allegedly stealing money and managers using improper language when speaking to female staff.

Kolnou Sokhalay said the staff had filed a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Unit in June, but had not yet received a response.  

ACU spokesman Keo Remy declined to comment on Friday on whether the complaint had been received, but said that if a complaint was filed, it would be properly reviewed.

Kum Kanal declined to comment on the accusations on Friday, and Health Minister Mam Bunheng was unavailable for comment.
