Family, firm still at odds over land

While one of the two Phnom Penh families embroiled in a long-running land dispute with the Khun Sear Import Export Company this week accepted a compensation offer, the other says it has no plans to back down.

Ly Seav Minh, whose family claims to have been subjected to violent attacks, having snakes thrown into their home and their pets poisoned, told the Post that Khun Sear has made no attempt to compensate them.

“No company has approached our family, but our stance now is firm. We still want to live on our land,” she said.

Norn Ouny, a legal officer with the Housing Rights Task Force, said the deal with the other family was reached on Tuesday when Khun Sear “offered an appropriate compensation in form of cash [so they] could buy a new house”.

“In the agreement, the two parties agree to withdraw all the complaints at the court,” he added.

Company representative Yim Leang, chief of Senate President Chea Sim’s bodyguard unit, said he could not comment on the negotiations.
