In Brief: Group 78 to hold public negotiation

Residents of Phnom

Penh's Group 78 community who face eviction are set to hold a press

conference at their site today, where they will invite City Hall

officials to hold compensation negotiations with residents. Lim Sambo

said the community wanted to hold the talks as a group to avoid being

bullied by government officials. "I have invited City Hall officials to

attend the meeting, and if they don't come, it's up to them," he said.

Phnom Penh Deputy Governor Mann Chhoeun could not be reached for

comment Wednesday.
