LAND DISPUTE: Villagers' complaint denied

The provincial governor of Ratanakkiri has told some 50 ethnic minority Tampoun and Kreung villagers that their complaint about the illegal acquisition of about 10 hectares of their ancestral land by the district vice governor, Seng Piseth, and a villager, Kleng Chantha, was not filed correctly. Governor Muong Poy told the villagers to take their complaint back to the commune level and solve it through the proper channels, said Vin Sokhin, who is representating the community. "If the village chief or commune chief doesn't help the villagers to resolve this case properly, then they can come to me and I will help them solve the problem, but right now there isn't much I can do," Muong Poy said.
