Unlicensed blood-test clinic shuttered in SR

A blood-testing lab in Siem Riep was closed down yesterday morning after it was discovered to be operating without a licence.

The bust happened after Siem Reap provincial prosecutor Kert Vanna Reth called for an investigation into the lab, named “Number 100” and located in front of the provincial hospital.

It was shuttered after a raid by the provincial economic police in cooperation with the provincial Health Department, according to Siem Riep economic police chief Soeun Sem.

“After we checked everything inside the place, we found that their licence expired in 2007, so we had to shut it down temporarily, and we sent the owner to the provincial police station for questioning,” he said.

Sem identified the owner of the clinic as Saur Chanly, 46.

According to Sem, the closure is part of a crackdown on unlicensed and illegal clinics.

In January, a clinic called Ya Shin was closed down after it was found to be selling illegal medication.
