16 July 2018
Kratie: Authorities have determined that the largest of the latest Kratie rice wine poisonings occurred at the funeral ceremony of a woman who had died earlier that week... of rice wine poisoning.
Chhneang Sovutha, director of the Kratie provincial health department, said on Saturday that the two poisoning incidents occurred within two days.

The first happened during a party in Snuol district on Thursday, which left three people dead, including 37-year-old Prech Sinath, 32-year-old Hun Sreylai, and 57-year-old Hor Hun.

The second incident occurred during Ms Sinath’s funeral on Friday, which led to the hospitalisation of dozens of people.

Mr Sovutha said that rice wine was served to dozens of villagers at Ms Sinath’s funeral on Friday.

“According to our observations, we have preliminarily concluded that the villagers got sick after consuming methanol-laced rice wine,” Mr Sovutha said.
