Documents said to back land claims

Evictees from the embattled Borei Keila community yesterday presented documents they said supported their claims for housing at the site.

At a forum involving Phnom Penh municipal authorities, NGOs and 185 families, villagers sought to prove they had owned homes at Borei Keila before violent evictions in January 2012 and were thus entitled to apartments that were supposed to have been built by development firm Phan Imex on adjacent land.

“I have enough legal documents that meet the requirements of [City Hall’s] solution committee,” evictee Has Sok Chenda said. “If the authorities are responsible and transparent, my family will receive a flat at Borei Keila.”

Evictees have squatted at Borei Keila since the violent evictions, many sleeping in tents close to piles of rubbish.

Deputy Governor Khuong Sreng said yesterday that villagers with the relevant documentation would receive housing, while others would be moved to another location.
