Ice factory families fear forced eviction

A group of 18 families living in a disused ice factory in Battambang province said Wednesday they fear for their safety as a relocation deadline approaches today with no sign of any resolution to their dispute with local authorities. “We’ve lived in this factory from 1979 until today, but the letter we received did not even mention compensation,” said representative Deap Chinda. An October 2 letter from the Department of Industry, Mines and Energy informed residents they were living on state land, giving them three months to relocate. The department could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.
