Villagers baseech NGOs in land fight

Representatives of 400 families from Svay Rieng province’s Romeas Hek district are seeking help from provincial NGOs after accusing a rubber company of seizing their land. Yea Yeoung, spokesman for the families, said 10 representatives had asked NGOs to intervene in their dispute with the Peam Chaing Rubber Co, after 100 families filed a complaint against the district governor on December 21. Deputy Commune Chief Hem Soun said it is not a problem authorities have the power to deal with. “We cannot intervene because the rubber company received a government land concession.”
