More than 100 families living in Dangkor district's Chom Chao commune near Phnom Penh International Airport travelled to Prime Minister Hun Sen's Takhmao residence last week to deliver a letter of complaint over plans to uproot their community to make way for an expansion of the airport. Chan Sam An, a representative of the families, said that city officials had given him and other residents three options: voluntarily remove their houses and receive an unspecified amount of compensation, voluntarily relocate to a site along Russian Boulevard, or be forcibly relocated.
