Svay Rieng villagers call for help

About 400 families from Svay Rieng province’s Tras commune, Romeas Hek district, say they have yet to receive assistance from the government or NGOs in a land dispute with a rubber company, despite having filed a complaint with local authorities. “I heard representatives from the company claiming that Samdech Hun Sen had already given them the land, but I don’t believe what they said,” villager representative Yea Yeng said Sunday. The Tras commune residents have accused the Peam Chaing Rubber Company of seizing 400 hectares of cassava and cashew-nut farms as part of a 3,960-hectare planned rubber plantation, the families filed a complaint on December 21. Government officials claim the villagers have been living illegally on state land.
