Residents ask PM to intervene in dispute

Villagers travelled from Poipet to Phnom Penh yesterday to seek the prime minister’s help in ending a land dispute with military police officials.

About 30 villagers travelling on behalf of families from Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town gathered in front of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s home yesterday to seek intervention after attempts by authorities to solve the dispute failed.

Villager Kong Vuthy said the families were living on land recognised by all local authorities apart from military police officials.

The dispute, which has been ongoing since 2002, even led to the short detention of two villagers.

The representatives submitted their petition and Lim Leang Se, a cabinet official, pledged to resolve their dispute.
