Protest continues

MORE than 40 families protested for a second day in a row yesterday over a land dispute with a businessman in Kandal province’s Kien Svay district. The protestors, from Prek Tanup and Kampong Svay villages in Kampong Svay commune, have accused Kry Lor of stealing 38 hectares of their land through false contracts he signed between 1995 and 1998. Kien Svay district governor, Heng Theam, said yesterday he had tried to resolve the dispute several times but had failed because villager’s compensation demands were too high.
