Evicted families to testify against 7NG

A group of 13 families evicted from the former Dey Krahorm community is set to testify in Phnom Penh Municipal Court today in a suit against 7NG, the developer that has since taken control of their former land in the capital’s Chamkarmon district. The families’ lawyer, Te Chamnan, said they were demanding compensation after their forced removal and the destruction of their homes by 7NG employees in January of last year. “I hope the company representatives will provide compensation to my clients to close this case,” Te Chamnan said, and added that the families are demanding US$195,000 in total in compensation from 7NG. 7NG lawyer Sen Kutkola could not be reached for comment on Monday.
