Boeung Kak residents appeal to UN for help

A GROUP of residents of the Boeung Kak lakeside and civil society representatives sent a letter to the United Nations and 13 foreign embassies in Phnom Penh yesterday, asking them to pressure the government to stop forced evictions in the area. “We call upon the international community to condemn this development aggression and implore the Royal Government of Cambodia to uphold its citizens’ rights,” the letter says. Sia Phearum, secretariat director of the Housing Rights Task Force, said the group hoped to raise the issue with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during his visit to the Kingdom this month.
