Commune to set up land ownership

Families in Chamkarmon district’s Tonle Bassac commune will be able to apply for land titles from today if they are legally eligible, commune chief Khat Narith said on Friday. “Those who are living in Prayou Vong pagoda cannot be given land titles, but some areas, like Dey Krahorm and Rik Reay, are entitled to get them,” he said. Am Sam Ath, a monitor for local rights group Licadho, said the declaration was a coincidence, given that it follows the forced evictions of the Sambok Chap, Dey Krahorm, Group 78 and Rik Reay urban poor communities, all in Tonle Bassac, who were unable to apply for land titles.
