PM Vows to Punish Land Grabbers

Prime Minster Hun Sen says the rising number of land disputes in rural areas threatens political and social stability.

Speaking at an economic conference in the capital, Hun Sen vows to punish authorities who either confiscate the land of workaday people or ignore those who do.

Mu Sochua, secretary-general of the opposition party, calls the premier’s threats watery, while Kem Sokha, director of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights, exhorts an assembly of the displaced.
