NGO reps tour lakeside

A DELEGATION of representatives from NGOs in 10 countries toured the Boeung Kak lakeside on Saturday to learn about the plight of the thousands of villagers who are being forced from the area by ruling party senator Lao Meng Khin’s Shukaku Inc and a Chinese firm. “They expressed their support for the villagers who are demanding on-site relocation housing,” lakeside representative Tep Vanny said, though she added that villagers would not be taking the delegation’s advice to file a complaint in relation to the dispute. “We don’t believe in the judicial system,” she said.
