Seven families who remain at the Royal University of Fine Arts campus have complained

about harassment by the Mong Reththy Group company after bulldozers shifted earth

around their houses.

The bulldozers pushed piles of soil around the few homes left standing and placed

large tree branches nearby, making access difficult for residents who were resisting

eviction.

Residents met with Phnom Penh municipal officials and company representative on August

25. Two families accepted an agreement with the company and five others will negotiate

again in three days.

In February, the government swapped the university in exchange for the rebuilding

of a new campus in Russey Keo district, four kilometers away from the old building.

However, former residents have said Mong Reththy's company has failed to provide

accommodation at the new campus as agreed.

Tan Sinthou said 16 families who left the campus in July have complained that the

company has not provided water, electricity or a land title for them.
