Residents in the way of satellite city debate compensation plans

Commune and city officials met yesterday with the developer of the Chroy Changvar satellite city and residents of the area affected by  construct-ion to discuss compensation for the displaced.

The development, under construction by the Overseas Cambodian Investment Corporation, will affect more than 31 hectares where Russei Keo district residents reside, according to the company.

Preap Mony, the chief of Prek Liep, one of the affected communes, said the company and authorities had agreed to compensate the affected families by providing them with four-metre by 12-metre flats in their commune of residence, as well as stalls in the new Preak Liep Thmey market to be built by the company.

Construction of the market would begin on December 20, Mony said.

Oeu Sophon, the chief of Prek Tasek commune, said residents of the four hectares affected by the company’s first phase of construction had rejected the proposed compensation.

Negotiations were under way to find a resolution, he said, adding that 11 Prek Tasek families were affected by construction during the project’s first phase, which covers four hectares.
