Ruling in hotel case expected: manager

THE former manager of the Hotel Renakse said she expected a ruling to be handed down today in one or both of the cases pertaining to the hotel currently before the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

Kem Chantha, who managed the hotel for nearly two decades, said Tuesday that her assistant had been in touch with a court official who said a ruling would be issued today.

Police and officials, wielding a court order stating that the hotel had fallen into an unacceptable state of disrepair, evicted guests and staff from the hotel on January 6 and barred Kem Chantha herself from its premises.

She has since filed a case with the  Municipal Court to save the hotel from demolition. Also before the court is a case filed by the ruling Cambodian People's Party claiming that her 49-year lease on the hotel should be voided.

Kem Chantha failed to appear at hearings in both cases last month.

CPP lawyer Khiev Sepphan said he had not heard that a ruling would be issued today.
