In Banteay Meanchey, villagers may see titles

Land titles may be issued to 107 families in Banteay Meanchey province’s Kampong Svay commune if the authorities decide they have not farmed illegally on land owned by CYL Investment, according to an official.

Provincial Governor Ko Sumsaroeut said on Thursday he was reviewing a complaint from the villagers over the granting of 136.5 hectares of land adjacent to Pongro Kongva Mountain to the company. The families say that they have been living and farming the area since 1979.

Chong Phet, deputy provincial governor, said yesterday that Sumsaroeut would grant the villagers land titles “if they have lived on the land legally”.
