In Brief: Appeal court to rule on group 78

The

Phnom Penh Court of Appeal will consider an appeal today filed by

lawyers representing the city's Group 78 community, which is seeking to

overturn an April 20 eviction notice giving them until May 5 to accept

a City Hall compensation package and vacate their homes. An injunction

filed by residents was rejected by Judge Duch Kimsan, on May 18, as

City Hall claims the community is living on state land and land

belonging to Sour Srun Enterprises, a local developer.
