Villagers worry eviction is imminent

Roughly 65 families in Kampong Cham’s Stung Trang district are asking a local rights group for help after a private company that claims it owns their land threatened to destroy their houses, villagers said Sunday. Sours Lam, a representative of the villagers in Prek Kak commune’s Prek 5 village, said officials with the Heng Long Company have told residents that they are living illegally on the land and must leave within a month. He said villagers sent a complaint to rights group Adhoc, urging it to intervene.
