The husband of a pregnant woman who was arrested last November in connection with a land dispute in Oddar Meanchey province says her health has deteriorated further since she has been in jail. Huoy Mai, 47, who is seven months pregnant, was arrested after being accused of illegally cutting down trees at the centre of an ongoing dispute with the Angkor Sugar Company, owned by CPP Senator Ly Yong Phat. Her husband, An Sean, said his wife had been bleeding for the past three days. “She cannot eat, and her health is deteriorating,” he said. According to the 2009 annual report from rights group Adhoc, a greater number of civilians were arrested and prosecuted in connection with land dispute cases last year, despite there being fewer such cases.
