Boeung kak protesters detained, released

Four Boeung Kak lake protesters were briefly detained by police yesterday as they joined villagers from four provinces embroiled in land disputes attempting to march on Prime Minister Hun Sen’s house to ask for solutions.

The villagers were preparing to march from the Wat Chas pagoda in Chroy Changvar commune yesterday morning when they were blocked by police and security guards.

Boeung Kak lake protesters Tep Vanny, Kong Chantha, Khek Chan Reaksmey and Song Sreyleap were all arrested at 9am as they met the villagers from Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Pailin and Svay Rieng provinces. All the women were released by 11am, but Reaksmey was taken for treatment to Calmette Hospital due to reported head injuries sustained during a scuffle with police.
