THE FAMILY of Leng Sreng, who found himself in jail on charges of organized

crime after a property dispute with the Justice Minister, Uk Vithun, and his

wife, Lihour, say they have had no problems since his release two weeks ago.

Leng Sreng's son said they had resolved their differences over the past

the complaint to the court had only been suspended and could be reactivated if

"my family make His Excellency's side angry again".
