Families call on city hall in land fight

Five families fighting eviction in the city’s Meanchey district took their protest to City Hall on Monday, standing firm against a compensation offer of US$1,000 that 17 other families have accepted. The families from Prek Tanuo village said officials in Chakangre Leu commune had threatened to destroy their homes on the Tonle Bassac river if they did not accept the payment, and called on Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema to intervene. Commune officials denied the allegations, saying they have requested that the families move to a site 100 metres away.
