Preah Vihear protesters plan rally at PM’s house

About 170 villagers involved in a Preah Vihear land dispute plan to protest in front of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s house this morning after mobilising under the radar to prevent authorities from blocking the attempt, a villager representative said yesterday.

Responding to previous attempts by authorities to prevent protesters travelling to Phnom Penh from Preah Vihear’s Choam Ksan district – site of a long-running dispute with now defunct NGO Drugs and Aids Research and Prevention Organisation – villagers in the past few days have trickled into the capital in small groups, Sat Savoeun said.

“We will get up early in the morning to gather at Prime Minister Hun Sen’s house, so that we are not blocked by authorities,” he said.
