Desperate villagers plan for protest

More than 100 people from five villages in Svay Chreah commune in Kratie’s Snuol district will stage a protest outside Prime Minister Hun Sen’s residence in Phnom Penh today to demand an intervention on their behalf in an ongoing land dispute with a Vietnamese rubber company, community representative Khieu Kong said yesterday. The Dov Taeng Rubber Plantation is accused of “destroying” villagers’ land in a disputed area, affecting a total of 940 families who own about 5,600 hectares of land, he said. The company could not be reached.
