Still waiting: More ‘empty promises’ for Boeung Kak

Boeung Kak Lake residents say they’ve been given another hollow promise after Phnom Penh’s governor failed to start measuring property for land titles on Wednesday.

On Monday, Governor Pa Socheatvong met with 76 Boeung Kak Lake families and, according to those in attendance, promised that land measuring for 32 families’ land titles would start
this Wednesday.

“When I came back from the meeting with City Hall, I waited at home until they came to take land measurements for my house, but they have not come,” said Phan Chhunreth, a representative from Village 22.

City Hall officials say they are busy with the protest and are going through old documents to verify which plots need measuring.

“We do not work as fast as the people want,” Kirt Chher, City Hall administration director, said. “We are working on it, but we cannot do it instantaneously.”
