No one in: Officials out, Sesan letter not accepted

Hundreds of villagers threatened by the Lower Sesan II hydropower dam project are vowing to protest at Stung Treng Provincial Hall if authorities continue to refuse to accept their statement opposing the project, a representative said yesterday.

Eighteen villager representatives attempted to submit a three-page statement to the provincial hall yesterday, only to be rebuffed, representative Choeurn Sreymom said.

“When we do not come to meet with them, they say how can they help if the people do not come?” she said.

In the statement, the community says it will not move for money.

Duong Pov, head of administration at the provincial hall, could not be reached.

Adhoc provincial coordinator Hou Sam Ol said yesterday that the relevant provincial officials were currently in Laos and that Adhoc would submit the document at the hall again on Wednesday.
