Watchdog eyes Land Law for illegal fees

ABOUT 100 officials from the Anti-Corruption Unit began a two-day workshop on the Land Law yesterday as part of their effort to deter the illegal payment of fees to government officials for land-related services, such as obtaining titles. About 80 of the about 200 total complaints received by the ACU over the past two years were related to land disputes, ACU chief Om Yentieng said. He also warned that officials had to stop taking fees to facilitate transactions. The ACU “will take legal action to arrest officials who continue to take illegal fees and we will monitor the cases at the court”, Om Yentieng said.
