PREAH VIHEAR: Thais must pay for armed clash

PREAH VIHEAR

ABOUT 100 members of the Khmer Civilisation Foundation (KCF), a local nationalist civil society group, have appealed for the government to request compensation from the Thai government after armed clashes damaged Preah Vihear temple and destroyed a nearby market. "We have to call for compensation from the Thai government," KCF President Meoung Son said Wednesday, saying the Thais damaged the Cambodian and world heritage site. Meoung Son said the $50 million in reparation paid to Thailand after the 2003 anti-Thai riots was a suitable precedent for a legal claim. Phay Siphan, spokesman of the Council of Ministers, said he had not received any official complaint from civil society Wednesday.
