Borei Keila court case

Borei Keila court case

Villagers from Phnom Penh’s Borei Keila community have been summoned to Phnom Penh Municipal Court after being accused by the Phanimex company of threatening, defaming and inciting crime against the firm over an investment dispute. Sek Sareoun, Mao Yaorn, Chhun Sovannary and Ngoun Sovanny received summons last Thursday to appear in court tomorrow and on August 15. In July, the four accused protested against Phanimex investing in their market, leading the company to file a complaint against them. The market is located in a building Phanimex constructed for 384 Borei Keila families in Prampi Makara district through a deal to secure the right to develop their land in 2003, obligations the company has since partially reneged on.
