Villagers protest arson detention

Around 130 families from Kratie province’s Chhlong district protested outside the provincial court on Monday to demand the release on bail of a man accused of burning his own home to the ground, villagers said. Suoth Tuoch said 29-year-old Bi Phalla, who was arrested on Friday, was planting cassava with other villagers at the time of the fire. “It is an injustice,” he said. A total of 380 families, including those that gathered at the court on Monday, are embroiled in a land dispute with the Kasotim Company that dates back to 2008, when the company was granted a concession in Chhlong district.
