In Brief: Villagers delay Apsara p

Villagers from Veal village in Kork Chak commune have delayed delivering a petition to Prime Minister Hun Sen over a land dispute with the Apsara Authority to allow more villagers to show support. Lim Enghav, 36, whose house was torn down on Sunday by Apsara officials because it breached building regulations, said on Thursday that he wanted to add more thumb prints to the petition. So far, he has collected more than 300. “I do not know if the petition should be sent on Friday or later because more people apparently will come to give their thumbprints,” he said. Bun Narithm, director general of the Apsara Authority, could not be reached for comment.
