Workers lose fingers, forearm to machine

Three workers from the Phnom Penh Sugar Company, a business owned by well-known tycoon Ly Yong Phat, lost two fingers and part of a limb to a machine they were operating yesterday in Omlaing commune in Kampong Speu province’s Thpong district.

Phal Vannak, the villager representative of Omlaing commune, said yes­terday two of the workers lost their index fingers, and the third lost an arm from his elbow down.

“The company took them to the hospital, but they won’t allow anyone to meet or talk to the victims,” he said.

Chheang Kim Sun, a Phnom Penh Sugar Company representative, could not be reached.
