Ratanakkiri vendors to defer petition

About 400 vendors from Banlung Market in Ratanakkiri province have delayed a plan to hold protests at Prime Minister Hun Sen’s house in Takhmao after hearing that the premier is set to inaugurate a road in the province’s O’Yadav district in February. The vendors are protesting against increased rent on stalls at the market. “We think that the authorities will try in many ways to ban us from meeting the prime minister when he comes for the inauguration, but we hope we will meet him,” he said.
