More soldiers at omlaing commune

About 100 soldiers from Royal Cambodian Armed Forces Battalion 313 were deployed last Thursday to help secure a 9,000-hectare concession in Kampong Speu province that has been granted to Cambodian People’s Party senator Ly Yong Phat, villagers said. On Sunday morning, groups of about 20 soldiers were stationed at 1-kilometre intervals across areas of land that both the villagers and company claim, said Men Pek, a village representative from Omlaing commune. Deputy provincial governor Pen Sambou said officials were continuing discussions on measuring the land to which protesting villagers are entitled, but hung up the phone when asked whether soldiers had been dispatched to the site.
