Cambodia Claims Vietnam Violates Her Border

Cambodian villagers and local authorities have accused Vietnam of building a guarding post inside Cambodia at the border in Memot town, Kampong Cham province.

They said they have told the Vietnamese guards to dismantle it. They said the Vietnamese guards told them that they had to check with the higher Vietnamese authorities first.

Opposition Sam Rainsy party legislator Son Chhay, who went to the border to inspect the post over the weekend confirmed the villagers' complaints.

Memot town's mayor Cheth Sa Or, told VOA by telephone that the post is not a border post, but a post to control the flow of goods between Kampong Cham province in Cambodia and Tay Ninh province in Vietnam.
