In Koh Kong land fight, volunteers requested

More than 30 representatives of families who claim a disputed piece of land in Koh Kong province went to provincial hall for the second time yesterday and submitted an official request to allow Prime Minister Hun Sen’s youth volunteer corps to measure the area.

Families in Botum Sakor and Kiri Sakor districts have feuded since 2008 with the Chinese company Union Development Group, which has been granted a concession to develop a mega resort on the coastline.

The volunteers are part of a land-titling scheme dreamed up by Hun Sen as a way of a resolving disputes.
