In Brief: Oddar Meanchey families to petition Hun Sen

Families who were violently evicted from their land in Oddar Meanchey province last month are preparing to take their plight to the prime minister, they said. About 70 families from Oddar Meanchey’s Kounkriel commune who have fled to Phnom Penh vowed to petition Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday. “We dare not go back home because we are afraid the provincial authorities will arrest us,” said Huoy Chhuoy. The families fled to the capital after their homes were razed in early October in a confrontation that saw a total of 214 families lose their homes.
