Military Police Draw Ire for Dozing Land

More than 100 people representing 300 families demonstrated in Kampong Thom province Monday, to oppose the alleged bulldozing of land by military police, officials said.

Military police razed about 200 hectares to make room for the development of an official site, a rights worker said.

Military Police Chief Lt. Gen. Sao Sokha said Monday that the land needed to be developed for growing rice during the dry season for military police who will be demobilized in the future.
