Assembly commission to visit Buddhist Institute land

The National Assembly commission that deals with cultural and religious affairs will inspect the Buddhist Institute in Phnom Penh on Friday to find out whether a NagaWorld casino expansion is posing a threat to it, an official said.

Yem Ponharith, the Cambodia National Rescue Party lawmaker who chairs the commission, said members wanted to see whether structures built by NagaWorld remained on the institute’s land.

“We’ll go and see with our own eyes whether the iron fences and the wall have been removed or not,” he said. Fears mounted last year that the institute was under threat.

The committee will also inspect the land situation at the Preah Sihanouk Raj Buddhist University, Ponharith explained. Hem Sopheak, from NagaCorp’s media room, declined to comment.
