More than 300 Boeung Kak villagers submitted a petition to the European Union delegation in Phnom Penh yesterday to ask that it intervenes with Prime Minister Hun Sen to urge municipal authorities to accelerate their request for onsite resettlement. The petition said the villagers were “legal land holders” and had been “intimidated” by authorities. Local developer Shukaku Inc was granted a 99-year lease to develop land around Boeung Kak lake in 2007. City Hall deputy administration chief Keut Chhe, said yesterday that villagers should await a new resolution. Rafael Dochao Moreno, chargé d’affaires at the EU delegation, said yesterday that he planned to inform EU officials of the letter.
