Posthumous award for slain environmentalist

The Prey Lang Community Network of anti-logging activists announced yesterday that late last month it had accepted the Alexander Soros Foundation’s $25,000 Award for Extraordinary Achievement in Environmental and Human Rights Activism on behalf of slain environmental crusader Chut Wutty.

In a statement, PLCN said giving the grant to the network “represents the best way to make sure Wutty’s work is continued”.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, PLCN representative Hoeun Sopheap said the award would help fund renewed patrols, adding that “forest crime has increased twofold” during recent political turmoil.

The Alexander Soros Foundation is a US-based organisation that promotes social justice, according to its website.
