Villagers file complaint against three ‘soldiers’

About 60 families in Kampong Cham province filed a complaint with Dambe district and provincial authorities yesterday, calling for action against three soldiers who they say stopped them from clearing vegetation on the community’s land. Chhin Yong, a village farmer, said the unknown soldiers on Monday seized their farming tools, including knives and hammers, before banning them from working in the fields. Dambe district governor Soy Sophat confirmed that he had received a verbal request from the villagers and that he would take action to investigate the allegation. “I don’t know if the three are soldiers or if they are just wearing uniforms to enter territory illegally,” he said.
