Seven Months On, Many Borei Keila Evictees Remain Homeless (Cambodia news in Khmer)
Seven months after they were violently evicted from their Phnom Penh homes and resettled in a sparse makeshift village in Kandal province, former residents of the Borei Keila community say they are anxiously waiting for housing. “It’s very difficult here,” said Pen Rina, who has been forced to live in a ramshackle cottage here in the Tuol Sambor resettlement site, 20 kilometers outside the capital. “I used to live in Borei Keila and worked in a factory near O’Russey Market, but I have nothing to do now. I've been living here for several months with almost nothing.” Rann Samnang, Kandal province.
