Villagers file complaint over red markings

More than 100 representatives from a village in Teuk Thla commune in the capital filed a complaint to the Sen Sok district governor yesterday to ascertain why local officials had spray-painted red markings on their homes. The residents claimed to be representing over 400 families from Trapaing Chhouk village whose homes were marked and numbered by police earlier this month. Village representative Chheang Rith said yesterday that villagers feared their houses may be set for demolition. “We are asking the district governor to explain [the markings],” he said. District governor Khoung Sreng said yesterday that he had received the complaint.
