Evicted families could face arrest

An Oddar Meanchey official has warned that families in Anlong Veng district whose homes were destroyed Tuesday could be arrested if they refuse to leave land near the Kulen-Promtep Wildlife Sanctuary. “If they are continually acting illegally, we have the right to arrest them,” said provincial cabinet deputy director Pech Ratanak. “But we are still gentle to solve this problem step by step.” Military and civilian police destroyed at least 100 homes on Tuesday, burning some to the ground. Pech Ratanak said 64 affected families have agreed to move to a relocation site.
