CPP lawmaker tells governor to solve feud

Ruling party lawmaker Chheang Vun yesterday called for the governor of Battambang province to intervene in a long-running land dispute between 38 villagers and wealthy tycoon Lem Tealeng.

“I suggest that the provincial governor negotiate with the court not to take any measures and let the land be measured,” Vun said, referring to charges laid against the villagers living on the land in Kors Kralor district.

Chan Sophal, Battambang provincial governor, responded that the authorities are already measuring the land and providing villagers with legal support.
