A

soldier based at Preah Vihear temple said he will leave his post to

contest a Phnom Penh Municipal Court decision to seize his property in

the capital's Russey Keo district at the end of the month. Captain

Kouch Kheang said he sent a letter on December 24 to the prime

minister, requesting he overturn the court ruling. "If they enforce the

verdict, I will return from Preah Vihear to protect my land. It is very

unjust that the court wants to take my land," he said.
