Market resolves rent dispute with vendors

VENDORS at Heng Ly Market in Tuol Kork district have agreed to a rise in annual stall rental prices after a month of protests failed, a vendor representative said yesterday. Vendor representative Tan Heang said that vendors could not continue to protest after authorities failed to heed their call. About 100 vendors protested twice last month after the owner of the market, Heng Ly, announced that he would raise the annual stall rental price from US$2,800 to $4,320. After vendors protested, Heng Ly amended the rent to $4,000 per year. A Heng Ly representative, who did not wish to be named, said yesterday that all vendors had agreed to the new. The stalls reopened last Thursday.
