residents affected by Shukaku Inc's controversial Boeung Kak
development will hold a press conference this morning to respond to a
televised statement by the developer that most residents are in favour
of the project. In a statement issued Wednesday, the residents said:
"We, the Boeung Kak residents, wish to deny the news report of February
24 and 25 in which Mr Lao Van, a representative of Shukaku Inc, said
that 70 percent of families agree with the development. It is not true
- just 21 percent of families support the project."
