Villagers face court

Two village representatives from around Boeung Kak lake appeared for questioning in Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday in relation to a defamation complaint filed by a lawyer for the municipal hall. Tep Vanny told reporters the complaint against herself and Heng Mom was based on a quote in a September article in the Post, regarding allegations that land titles were awarded to developer Shukaku Inc within an onsite relocation area for villagers. Shukaku was awarded a 99-year lease in 2007 to develop the lakeside. A senior municipal official who declined to be named said both residents and officials used the court to resolve issues.
