Forestry officials tell Kulen families to leave

Forestry officials in Siem Reap province have ordered people living in a protected area near Kulen mountain to vacate their homes within 15 days, according to a notice issued last Wednesday, but villagers have refused to move. Provincial Forestry Administration director Tea Kimsoth said officials suspect that families were moving to the site in Banteay Srei district’s Tbeng commune in hopes of being awarded land. He said alternative land would be allocated for existing residents. But villager Sar Seang, 69, said she had lived in the village since 2007 and would refuse to leave. “I do not have any other land to live on,” she said.
