Villagers to face court for property damage

THREE villagers involved in a land dispute with a firm owned by ruling party senator Ly Yong Phat are expected to appear at Kampong Speu provincial court today, accused of damaging company property. The villagers are part of a group of more than 2,000 families from Thpong district’s Omlaing commune that rights organisations say will be displaced by a 8,343-hectare land concession granted to Ly Yong Phat’s Phnom Penh Sugar Company. More than a dozen Omlaing villagers, who have been locked in the dispute with Phnom Penh Sugar since February, have so far been summoned for questioning by the provincial court in connection with the land spat.
