16 Omlaing commune villagers summonsed

Kampong Speu’s provincial court on Monday summonsed 16 village representatives from Omlaing commune, Thpong district, after an office belonging to the Phnom Penh Sugar Company was torched on March 18, a village representative told the Post on Monday. About 100 soldiers have been sent to guard the disputed land, which is part of a 9,000-hectare concession granted to the Phnom Penh Sugar Company, owned by Cambodian People’s Party Senator Ly Yong Phat. 62-year-old You Thou, a council member for Omlaing commune and one of the 16 summonsed to court, said that it’s his second time being summonsed and that the court has ordered him to appear on March 24 due to a complaint filed by Chhean Kimsuon, a representative of Phnom Penh Sugar Company.
