Pig farmers to trot out tax concerns

A group of pig farmers in Svay Rieng province will meet with authorities on March 16 to discuss claims of excessive taxation, officials said. The pig farmers say that border and customs officials have been imposing illegal charges on vehicles bringing pigs into the capital. Neang Chantha, president of the Svay Rieng Pig Farmers Community, said he will demand that authorities end all charges. “I will ask them to stop charging taxes when we cross the border into Phnom Penh,” he said. He added that although tax officers appear to have ended a 4,000-riel (about US$1) per-pig charge, customs officers are still asking for 60,000 riels for each pig-filled vehicle.
