Siem Reap government promises to fix dispute

Siem Reap officials yesterday promised almost 100 protesters a resolution to a land dispute between villagers and a military unit.

Protesters from Varin district’s Srenoy commune gathered in front of the Provincial Hall, demanding the government mediate with Intervention Brigade 5, which claims the Ministry of Defence owns the territory that residents say is their farmland, said Phuong Sorya, a representative.

Officials from the brigade could not be contacted yesterday, but Tep Ruon, deputy commander of Military Region 4, said migrants cleared and occupied ministry property.

Protesters, who arrived at about 10am, left at 2pm after a Provincial Hall spokesman promised a resolution.
