Lake Dispute: Residents of Boeung Kak appeal to PM

Lake Dispute
About 100 families from the city’s Boeung Kak lake area delivered a letter to the Council of Ministers on Monday, asking Prime Minister Hun Sen to spare their homes, which are slated to be demolished as part of a controversial development project. “We are very concerned that the master plan for development of Boeung Kak lake ... will encompass our houses,” said Ly Mom, a representative of the families from the lake’s Village 24. Saing Oun, an official with the Committee of Land Dispute Resolution at the Council of Ministers, confirmed that he had received the residents’ letter.
