Kun Nhim, director-general of the General Department of Customs and Excise today reaffirmed that the company which imported the 83 rubbish-filled containers found at Sihanoukville Autonomous Port early this week is a Cambodian entity.
Kun Nhim told Khmer Times that the author identified the Cambodian company as Chungyuen Plastic. Co.Ltd, a Cambodian entity with Chinese employees.
“We found that “Chungyuen Plastic. Co.Ltd was registered in 2018 with the Commerce Ministry,” he said. “There are Chinese nationals working in this company and we do not know yet whether Chinese nationals have shares in the said company or not.”
“The result of the investigation will be made known at the end of next week,” Mr Nhim said and added that once investigations and searches are complete, the exact stake holders of the company will be established.
