A Land Dispute Flared up in Kampong Chhnang

Ninety families in Rolea Pha Ear, Kampong Chhnang province, have asked a lawyer, Chhith Sarith to represent them in a land dispute. He alleged that these families have asked him to defend them.

Provincial court issued a warrant for 3 people to appear in court on November 23rd. Four soldiers charged them of illegally possessing properties.

Mr. Chhith said that he received the case on October 17th, and that he does not know how big the land is. The soldiers said that the land belongs to them since 1990.

The other villagers told authorities that they had 30 hectares of land. They alleged that local authorities do not pay attention to their plight.
