Market vendors ask for relocation help

About 200 vendors at Phnom Penh’s Doeum Kor market in Tuol Kork district yesterday protested for the district governor to find them a new venue. The storeholders received a notice stating they would be evicted from Street 235 in 15 days to “create public order” in the area. Rice seller Chey Chhannimol, 25, said yesterday: “Where can I go? I’ve earned money here for more than 10 years.” Soth Chanra, deputy district governor, said that their removal had been delayed until May 15.
