DM Group blocks road: villagers

SIXTEEN families in Patang commune in Ratanakkiri's Lumphat district say the agricultural company DM Group has blocked the road they use to access nearly 30 hectares of farmland, Pen Bonnar, former provincial coordinator for the rights group Adhoc, said Thursday.

"The company has blocked access to [villagers'] land and is making it difficult for these 16 families to bring tractors and motorbikes to their farms," Pen Bonnar said.

Say Chamroeun, a DM Group representative, told the Post Thursday that the company has never harmed the villagers.

"Our company has not blocked their land. We have left them a broad road for them to enter their farms," he said.
