Dredging continues on disputed riverside

Sand dredging along the riverbank in Russey Keo district resumed yesterday even as villagers continued to protest over the damage it is causing to their houses while waiting for the local authorities to release inspection results.

Hu Samon, chief of Svay Pak commune, said the inspections are completed, but results have not been released.

Ly Chenda, a villager, said the 17 families who refused to move out protested in front of the sand-dredging site with photos of Prime Minister Hun Sen and his wife.

So Lyda, the owner of the sand-dredging business, said that the villagers were living illegally along the riverbank and refused to give them more compensation.
