Villagers file complaint

REPRESENTATIVES of local rights group Adhoc yesterday filed a complaint to the Ratanakkiri provincial court on behalf of 15 ethnic Kreung families from the province’s Veun Sai district, accusing a local rubber firm of illegally clearing trees from their land. Adhoc monitor Chhay Thy said the firm, Kiri Akphiwat, also met with the families yesterday and offered to pay 10,000 riels (US$2.40) compensation for each tree. He said the amount was “unfair” since their resin formed the basis of the families’ livelihoods.
