Borei Keila solution talks set

A public forum will be held next month to find a solution to the Borei Keila housing crisis, city officials said yesterday.

During a meeting with about 50 representatives of the community, Nhem Chanthary, deputy director of City Hall’s poor community development office, said Governor Pa Socheatvong had scheduled a meeting for July 22 to try to find housing for displaced residents.

Chanthary said that to receive new housing, villagers will need to prove that they were residents of Borei Keila before the area was developed.

“If residents fake documents in order to get a flat from the state, the committee will send their names to the Phnom Penh Municipal Committee for further action,” she warned.

Sia Phearum, secretariat director of Housing Rights Task Force, lauded yesterday’s announcement.

“Now we believe that Phnom Penh Municipal Hall has good will to solve the housing problem in Borei Keila,” he said.
