Villagers protest at port

A GROUP of 100 residents facing eviction from their shelters near Sihanoukville Autonomous Port protested at Preah Sihanouk provincial court yesterday demanding a resolution before they are forced to move in just two days time. An October 28 court order granting land title of the area to Chan Kang, director of the petrol management office at Sihanoukville Autonomous Port, gave villagers just one week to evacuate their makeshift homes.

Villagers yesterday shouted at the court and Sihanoukville Municipal Hall demanding authorities give them more time to find a resolution.
