Update on Borei Keila requested

The National Assembly’s anti-corruption commission submitted a letter to the Phnom Penh Municipal Hall last week requesting an update on the resolution of the long-running dispute between evicted Borei Keila villagers and development firm Phan Imex.

In early October, Phan Imex owner Suy Sophan appeared before the commission under allegations that she violated a contract to build 10 residential high-rises for families in Borei Keila in exchange for their land in Prampi Makara district. Only eight buildings were finished.

“We want to know the settlement process so that we could take proper action,” said opposition anti-corruption commission chairman Ho Vann, who told Sophan in the October meeting that Phan Imex has to house families left out of the deal.

City hall spokesperson Long Dimanche said yesterday that a meeting will be held to discuss whether villagers have the right documents to live in the buildings.
