Electricite Du Cambodge (EDC) has warned it will take legal action against people

stealing electricity, if it finds enough evidence to prosecute.

The EDC suspects electricity is being stolen in nine locations in Phnom Penh. An

official said that before 2000 about 20 percent of the electricity generated was

stolen each year, but this had been reduced to 13 percent, a loss acceptable to the

World Bank, which had funded the city generating plant.
