Interior Ministry seizes illicit milk in the capital

Officials from the Interior Ministry on Wednesday seized a lorry along with 1,286 bottles and cans of Meiji milk from a home in the capital’s Kakab commune.

Anti-Intellectual Property Crime Office chief Mat Yousu said the milk products were imported illegally from Thailand, breaking an exclusive distribution deal.

“The milk was imported without any permission from Sonaviph, the company which has exclusive distribution rights,” he said.

The homeowner, identified as Khy Huor Sreng, 44, was called in for questioning after a complaint by Sonaviph. Yousu noted that no arrest had yet been made. However, the goods have been impounded by the ministry and the case sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.
