Villagers in dispute with private businessmen

Jarai ethnic villagers in Ratanakkiri province’s O’Yadav district will meet with private businessmen today, who allegedly used a bulldozer to clear their land in Som Thom commune’s Somkaninh village, district officials said yesterday. O’Yadav district police chief Ma Vichet said that the villagers and businessmen would discuss the dispute at police headquarters after about 20 villagers and the commune chief filed a complaint on Saturday.

O’Yadav district commune chief Sal Toul said that the land belonged to the villagers, and he was unsure why they had cleared the land repeatedly.
