Swap deal struck: Families to move for city development

More than 130 families will be relocated to make way for a multibillion-dollar development project in the capital’s Chroy Changva district after an agreement was signed yesterday by villagers, district officials and the Overseas Cambodian Investment Corporation (OCIC ) said.

Some residents were dissatisfied with the agreement, while others were happy to accept the promise of flats and market stalls in neighbouring Borei Rongreung in exchange for their land, which will be developed as a satellite city.

“The people who owned only a hut were very delighted, but those who owned a bigger plot of land and houses seemed unhappy about it,” community representative Chuob Sophorn said.

Unhappy residents have sent letters of complaint to the OCIC, which is considering renegotiation at a later date, OCIC representative Sok Siphana said.

A lottery will determine where each family’s house and market stall will be.
