Families say land dispute far from over

Ten Pursat families who received land titles after student volunteers measured their land remain embroiled in a long-running dispute with economic land concessionaire Pheapimex Co, Ltd, which they claim is still barring them from planting and farming the area.

Although three hectares of his land was measured and he was granted a land title, 44-year-old Loeung Tho said local authorities continue to accuse him of violating company land in Krokor district.

District governor Tim Sarin said that he has already solved the land dispute by issuing titles, but the families continue to protest and ask for their land to be demarcated.

“If the authorities dare not recognise their land titles, it is illegal.”
