Two managers and five workers from a construction company building the $400 million Olympia City development in Phnom Penh were arrested yesterday following an accident that killed a woman on Sunday, police said.

Puth Vanny, 48, was riding a motorbike with her son and his fiancee past the site near the Olympic Stadium when a metal object fell and killed her.

The managers – one Cambodian and one Chinese – and the workers were questioned after the incident, according to a Prampi Makara district police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“After interrogation, they were arrested [yesterday],” he said.

The arrest followed a press briefing in the morning by National Police Chief General Neth Savoeun, in which he called for those responsible for Vanny’s death to be held accountable.

The Olympia City development is owned by the Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC), which when contacted on Sunday said it was aware of the incident but declined to comment further.

District police said yesterday that they believed Cana Sino Construction Corporation (CSCC) was working on the project as a subcontractor. Neither the OCIC or CSCC would comment yesterday. Read more
