Pair summonsed over land dispute with KDC

Two villagers in Kampong Chhnang province’s Kompong Tralach district were summonsed to the provincial court yesterday to answer questions about their civil suit against KDC International, a company they accuse of grabbing their farmland.

The villagers, Reach Seima and Loeng Lim, allege that KDC International, which is owned by Chea Keng, the wife of Mines and Energy Minister Suy Sem, stole 78 acres of their land in 2008.

“I did not sell my land, I haven’t accepted 100 riel from the company,” Reach Seima said. Twenty-one other families have filed similar suits and several protests have been staged criticising the alleged land grab. Counsel for KDC International could not be reached by the Post yesterday.
