Officials allege Thai blockade

ABOUT 60 Thai trucks blocked the road connecting Thailand with Cambodia in Banteay Meanchey province Sunday, preventing Cambodian farmers from exporting cassava roots, officials and local villagers said.

Nou Yorth, chief of the monitoring office at the Boeung Trakoun border checkpoint in Banteay Meanchey province, said Sunday that Thai farmers blocked the road to prevent vans carrying the wet cassava root over the border.

He said it followed a week-long blockade in September, which forced Cambodian farmers to suspend exports, after which the road was reopened.

“There seem to be spies to watch the road,” he said. “When we send two or three trucks, they come together to block [it].”
