Ceremony delayed

The Khmer Kampuchea Krom Association has delayed a ceremony marking the loss of Cambodian land to Vietnam in 1949 until June 10, after City Hall and the Interior Ministry denied permission to hold the event – in which food would have been offered to 1,949 monks outside Wat Botum – last Friday. Association president Thach Sitha said that he had submitted a new event proposal to City Hall. The association said in a statement that the event had faced difficulties holding the event since the appointment of municipal governor Kep Chuktema. City Hall cabinet chief Koeut Chhe and Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak could not be reached yesterday.
