A Kandal province brick kiln was fined five million riel ($1,250) for using child labour, after some 100 such facilities were inspected as part of an ongoing check into illegal practices in the industry.
Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training working groups carrying out the inspections also banned the dangerous working conditions found at several other locations.
The checks were carried out over the past month in Phnom Penh, Kandal, Kampong Cham, Tbong Khmum, Kratie and Prey Veng provinces.
