Boxing Day evictions strike 75 families

 

The eviction of 53 more families living at Borei Keila and 25 families in Russey

Keo took place on December 26 and the families were sent to Trapaing Anchagn commune

of Dangkor on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. About 100 police, military police and

hired workers dismantled the cottages, claiming the families were either renters

or new-comers intent on staying in the area despite eviction notices. A local human

rights group official from Licadho said about 120 families remain in the Borei Keila

area still facing eviction. Each family was to receive a plot of land five meters

by 12, but when the authorities took them to the resettlement area, there was no

land.
