Pursat court summons

PURSAT provincial court has again summoned 12 villagers from four communes in Krakor district to appear for questioning in relation to complaints filed by a company with which they are involved in an ongoing land dispute. Village representative Kun Veng said the 12 were ordered to appear December 6 after they requested a delay from hearing scheduled for last Friday. In 2000, Pheapimex was granted a 315,028-hectare land concession in Kampong Chhnang and Pursat to grow acacia trees, a project locals claim will affect thousands of villagers. But the future of the case is uncertain following the arrest yesterday of provincial court prosecutor Top Chanseryvuth by officials at the Anticorruption Unit. Duok Sary, another representative, said he now hoped the villagers would get a fair hearing from the courts. Top Chanseryvuth could not be reached.
