Ministry seizes fake alcohol

ANTI-ECONOMIC Crime Department officials at the Ministry of Interior announced the seizure of around 4,000 litres of fake alcohol, which was imported and due to be sold illegally in the kingdom.

The department’s deputy director Long Sreng said that on Saturday, Boueng Keng Kang district police officers in collaboration with his department raided a location storing and distributing methanol.

The methanol seized was not suitable for hand washing and would not protect against Covid-19.

Sreng said the seized items included 19 yellow buckets of methanol weighing 163kg each, 75 jerry cans and pumping equipment.

“After the raid, the owner was required to sign a contract agreeing to stop importing and distributing fake alcohol.

“We are continuing to carry out raids and crackdown on counterfeit products. I will not reveal any identities yet, but we have a further three raids planned next week,” he said. — Phnom Penh Post/ANN
