Civil society group to visit Vietnam border

THE Cambodian Watchdog Council plans to visit sensitive areas of the Vietnamese border in Kampong Cham province on Sunday, after having delayed an earlier trip out of respect to the victims of last week’s Koh Pich bridge disaster. In a statement yesterday, CWC head Rong Chhun said the group would visit border demarcation post No. 109 in Memot district’s Da commune to probe local complaints that demarcation posts have been shifted into Cambodian territory. Var Kimhong, senior minister in charge of border affairs, previously warned the authorities would take action to prevent any groups from disturbing the demarcation process.
