Chi Kraeng: Villagers given time to find lawyer

Chi Kraeng
The trial against villagers involved in a long-running land dispute in Siem Reap’s Chi Kraeng commune was again postponed after the four asked for time to find a lawyer.

Defendants Chheng Savoeun, Tork Leap, Khlin Eang and Chan Leap appeared in Siem Reap provincial court Friday to face charges of incitement, causing injury and destroying private property during a November 2008 incident.

The court granted the group a delay of seven days.

The case stems from a dispute between residents from Chi Kraeng and neighbouring Anlong Samnor commune. Last year, the court ruled that all the disputed land belonged to Amlong Samnor, setting off conflicts between the villagers. RANN REUY
