Land protest continues

About 15 villagers from among 386 families in the capital’s Borei Keila community continued to protest outside Prampi Makara district hall yesterday to seek intervention in a dispute with a private firm. In 2003 Phanimex Company agreed to construct ten buildings on two hectares of land to house over 1,700 families, in exchange for the right to develop a remaining 2.6 hectares. Phanimex has so far constructed only eight buildings. District governor Som Sovann said that his office was abiding by municipal policy. Phanimex owner Suy Sophan could not be reached for comment.
