Land-clearing arrests in Ratanakkiri province

Six workers and their boss were charged yesterday with illegal land clearing in Ratanakkiri’s Andong Meas district.

The six workers were arrested on Sunday while allegedly clearing forests in Nhang commune.

The employer, who came forward the next day claiming he had bought the land in 2011, was also arrested.

They have all been sued by a new company called 7 Makara, and sent to court to be charged. 

Provincial military police commander Kim Reaksmey said the employer had been defrauded because the land belonged to 7 Makara, which could not be reached for comment.
