Chinese company in Koh Kong land dispute

A REPRESENTATIVE of around 20 families in Koh Kong province said yesterday that they planned to protest against the actions of the Union Development Group, a Chinese-owned company he accused of failing to honour an agreement to properly compensate residents affected by a large-scale development project. Mok Visetha, 38, said the company had originally agreed to provide residents with US$8,000 per hectare of land lost to the project, which included a new commercial centre complete with hotels, retail stores and restaurants. He said the company had changed its offer to as little as $300 per hectare. UDG officials could not be reached for comment yesterday.
