Vendors from Takeo province will return to Phnom Penh this week to protest government inaction in a property dispute with a market owner in the province. On August 1, around 130 of the vendors at Tonloab market converged in front of Prime Minister Hun Sen's Takhmao residence to demand intervention against Ni Heng and Ung Rithea, the owners of the Tonloab market. Vendors claim the pair deceived them into ceding their selling locations. The vendors returned home last Tuesday after receiving assurances from Hun Sen's office that the issue would be resolved within three days. In the five days since, however, circumstances at the market have not changed, leading the vendors to say that they will renew their protest.
