Logging firm fails again to notify and pay taxes

Logging by Vietnamese-owned concessionaire Company 72 has once again spilled the boundaries of its land in Ratanakkiri’s O’Yadav district, this time without paying proper taxes to the Forestry Administration (FA), local forest conservation activist Romas Svang said yesterday.

According to Svang, the company’s loggers felled and removed about 10 sizable trees “immediately, without informing the Forestry Administration”.

Adhoc provincial coordinator Chhay Thy said yesterday that even when logging with the concessions, companies must still report the timber to the FA.

“When they log on their concession land, they must inform the Forestry Administration in order to pay taxes to state,” he said.

Phat Pouen, an official at the provincial FA department, said he was looking into it. A representative of Company 72 could not be reached for comment.
