A prison official said on Wednesday that construction of Cambodia’s first privately run prison, which is set to allow prisoners with enough money to upgrade to more comfortable cells, is close to completion.
The $4 million project, a new wing of Prey Sar Prison in Phnom Penh, began in May 2017. It has been led by a private company, Kunn Rekon Holdings, on a 45-year build-operate-transfer agreement that will see the government and the firm sharing revenues.
