Borei Keila residents continue the fight

REPRESENTATIVES of 384 families from Phnom Penh’s Borei Keila community protested for a seventh time at Prime Minster Hun Sen’s house yesterday, demanding the company Phan Imex fulfill a compensation agreement. About 150 representatives attended yesterday’s protest at the premier’s Takhmao residence, rejecting an offer of land from Phan Imex instead of promised housing. In 2003 Phan Imex agreed to construct 10 apartment blocks in exchange for the right to develop a 2.6 hectare area in Prampi Makara district where 1,700 families were living. But to date the developer has only built eight of the buildings and has proposed a scheme to scuttle the project and provide land instead.
