Kratie villagers press ongoing land protest

SEVENTY-SEVEN families from Kratie province’s Snoul district continued their more than week-long protest against the Dai Nam Company yesterday, claiming that the rubber firm was continuing to clear their cassava fields. Village representative Rim Khem, 58, said the company employed armed military police who routinely threatened the villagers. “They threatened
to arrest us and put us in prison if we touched their excavator,” the representative said. Snoul district governor Iv Saphum said the Dai Nam Company had received an economic land concession
of 500 hectares from the government in 2010, adding that he had already provided land to those villagers who had been affected by the rubber concession.
