Disabled veterans upset over late pensions

More than 1,000 veterans and disabled soldiers had demonstrated in Siem Reap town on Saturday over the late and incomplete issuing of pensions, protesters told the Post yesterday.

So Reung, 52, said he and other ex-soldiers from 12 districts in Siem Reap province had been asked to claim their pensions from the social affairs department between April 2 and 6, but had received amounts short of what was expected or had been told their names were not listed. 

Department officials said the dispensing of pensions had been delayed, as a full list of names had not been provided by higher-level officials and there was a shortage of manpower.
