Phnom Penh Governor intervenes to get landlords to reduce room rentals of factory workers in Red Zones and provides more food supplies

(IndochinaKings.org) Upon receiving information from workers living in a rented house along Veng Sreng in Village 2, Sangkat Stung Meanchey 3, Khan Meanchey, who had a shortage of food and also had problems related to the price of a rented house, Phnom Penh Governor Khuong Sreng led Khan and Sangkat authorities to coordinate with these workers and persuaded the landlord not to increase the rental rates.

The workers who lived there confirmed that they had rented 470 rooms at the said location, and after the February 20 community event, the landlord reduced the rent by $20 per room and offered to share their hardship while the factory was closed.

But lately, after the government has reopened traffic, landlords’ rents have risen, leaving workers living in the red zone unemployed. Disagreeing with this price increase, the workers protested. After mediation from the governor, the landlord agreed with the authorities to reduce the price back by $20.

Sreng also supported the workers in the 470 rooms with each room receiving a gift from Prime Minister  Hun Sen comprising 1 bag of rice weighing 25 kg, 1 box of noodles, 10 cans of fish and 1 bottle of fish sauce. These gifts will be distributed in front of the workers’ rented room.

In addition,  the Governor of Phnom Penh has facilitated the workers to be in arrears for their utility bills as well.
