Police Seize Equipment at Sisowath Quay Site

Vattanac Properties’ construction equipment has been seized by the police after the firm ignored an order to cease work as it has damaged adjacent historic buildings while digging. The work began in mid-April and Vattanac was in the process of removing soil in order to shore up the foundation by putting in a cement retaining wall, when the surrounding land shifted and cracks appeared in neighboring buildings. Police have asked that residents in the surrounding units vacate and that Vattanac cease construction, only the residents have complied.
