KDC land dispute: Families petition PM over suits

KDC land dispute
A REPRESENTATIVE of more than 100 families involved in a dispute with KDC International, a company headed by the wife of a government minister, said yesterday that he had submitted a petition to Prime Minister Hun Sen, requesting intervention after the company brought a series of lawsuits against villagers.

Pheng Tom accused the company of using the court system to discourage 108 families from protesting its efforts to remove them from their land in Kampong Chhnang province, and said four protesters had been arrested in connection with the case.

Court officials and a company representative could not be reached for comment.
