PHNOM PENH (Khmer Times) – Three unlicensed medical clinics operated by Chinese nationals have been closed by authorities in Battambang’s Phnom Proek and Sampov Loun districts.
The crackdown on unlicensed premises comes after Battambang province’s HIV outbreak five months ago. Over 250 residents in the province’s Roka commune tested positive for the AIDS-causing virus.
About 2,000 people were tested for the virus after an unlicensed doctor was found to have reused syringes to give hundreds of injections.
On Wednesday, provincial authorities arrested four Chinese nationals and closed down the three clinics in Bour commune, Phnom Proek district.
Keo Sokyan, 63, from Kampong Thom province and Vann Sengheang, 32, from Kampong Speu province, were arrested when police raided their clinic, a branch of the “Cambodia Virtue Medical Association”.
Both men hold Chinese and Cambodian dual citizenship.
During the crackdown, police confiscated 40 kinds of pills, three types of needles, medical serums, medical treatment machines and other clinical equipment.
Two other clinics in the district were also shut down and two other Chinese nationals, Guo Liuana, 52, and Ma Phy, 48, taken in for questioning.
“According to an expert official, this medical service was being run without a license from the Ministry of Health,” said Sareth Viseth, the district deputy police chief. “Prosecutors decided to close the clinic temporarily.”
