Evictions
As many as 50 families in Dangkor district’s Kakab commune have been given two weeks to tear down all or part of their homes as authorities increase the size of a drainage system designed to prevent flooding in the area, residents said Monday. Approximately 30 families received a letter of eviction on January 15 notifying them that the drainage system would be expanded to 15 metres in width. A letter sent last week said the system would only be 8 metres wide, and that 20 families would need to move. Deputy District Governor Kith Sopha said the families would not receive compensation.
