Roughly 60 families in Preah Sihanouk province’s Mittapheap district who have complained for more than a week of foul smells emanating from an agricultural supply warehouse were breathing easier on Monday after employees of CARIS Co Ltd began removing bags of the offending product. Nhem Maneth, a representative of the district’s Village 2, said Monday that government and company officials had been slow in responding to his community’s concerns that the pungent fertiliser could pose a health risk. Commune chief Kan Leing said, however, that he had never received the complaint. A CARIS employee who identified himself only as “Phally” said all the fertiliser would be relocated to remote warehouses in Kampong Thom, Svay Reing and Battambang provinces. “It doesn’t smell too bad - it smells like fish sauce,” he added.
