Two summoned over cleared state forest

Two villagers representing 118 families embroiled in a land dispute with local authorities in Banteay Srei district have been summoned by the Siem Reap provincial court to appear at the provincial Forestry Administration office for questioning. Seong Vanna, 40, said on Friday that he and Thoun Noeum, 50, had received notice from provincial prosecutor Ty Soveinthal to respond to allegations of clearing state forest land. Seong Vanna said he would not appear as requested because neither he nor the other residents of Tbeng commune’s Tbeng Lech village had cleared the land. Provincial Forestry Administration Director Tea Kimsoth could not be reached for comment on Friday.
