Petitioners in Phnom Penh

Some 100 representatives of communities in Svay Rieng and Kratie provinces gathered to present petitions to the National Assembly yesterday, seeking the body’s intervention in two land dispute cases in their home provinces.

In the Svay Rieng case, villagers accused authorities of kicking some 300 families off of their land, only to later redistribute it to just a handful of the former occupants.

In Kratie, villagers say authorities are trying to subdivide land granted to them under the prime minister’s land-titling scheme in order to profit from the extra plots.
