Land dispute: Residents asked about CNRP links

A family accused of vandalising property claimed by a politically connected tycoon in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district was questioned yesterday over their alleged links to the opposition party.

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court prosecution’s questioning of Ly Seavminh, 26, and her brother, Ly Bunheang, focused on whether Real Camerin, a Cambodia National Rescue Party lawmaker-elect, and CNRP youth leader Soung Sophorn had assisted in the family’s claim to the land.

“They asked me who Real Camerin is. I responded I did not know him and that whenever there is a problem at my house, I see many people coming to help us. So I don’t always remember who is who,” Seavminh said.

Seavminh’s family is one of three claiming that representatives of Khun Sear Import Export Company – one of which they say is Yim Leang, the head of Senate President Chea Sim’s bodyguard unit – have waged a campaign of harassment.
