Prey Nub district authorities in Sihanoukville have warned they will act against a land broker in Cheung Ko commune, known as “Mr Mab”, who illegally filled in a public lake, if he does not restore it within seven days.

Locals there reported that land broker Mab, who owns land next to the lake, illegally filled it in as he wanted to sell the area. Mut Sokha,

Cheung Ko commune police chief, said Mab has already rented an excavator to restore the lake. “He has already rented an excavator and two trucks to dredge the soil,” Sokha said.
