Villagers to hold vigil

MORE than 300 villagers plan to gather outside Kampong Speu provincial court tomorrow to support four peers who have been summoned to clarify their roles in the torching of a sugar company office earlier this year, villagers said. Chim Sarum, 41, Sar Than, 43, and Dul Leang, 28, have been accused of inciting arson in the March burning of an office of the Phnom Penh Sugar Company, owned by the Cambodian People’s Party Senator Ly Yong Phat. Another villager, Puth Yoeun, has been accused of illegally living on the company’s land in Omlaing commune.
