Coffee shop shut, 11 held for breaking Covid measures

Authorities on May 10 shut down a coffee shop in Kouk Khleang commune’s Chres village in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district and briefly detained 11 people for not complying with Covid-19 preventive measures. Eight motorcycles were also impounded.

District police chief Hour Meng Vang told The Post on May 11 that the offenders were reprimanded and then released.

"We educated [staff] not to serve customers in the shop, but customers could order takeaway," he said.

Meng Vang said authorities did not impose a fine and only made them sign a letter promising not to repeat the offence.

Municipal governor Khuong Sreng on April 28 issued a directive to suspend all business activities related to food and beverage in the capital’s yellow zones, with only takeaway services permitted.
