Wondering about sources

We have read your article "Siem Reap and Poipet marked for new airports"

published the 10th of September 2004.

We are surprised by its content and the inaccuracy of various statements, which seems

to reveal lack of investigation and appropriate information. For instance, you state

that "Under this contract with Cambodia Airport Management Services (CAMS),

the French operating partner Societe Concessionnaire de l'Aeroport (SCA) agreed not

to operate any other location for 10 years from 1995..."

We would be interested to know your sources that support this statement. For your

information, Societe Concessionnaire de l'Aeroport is the company who signed in 1995

the B.O.T. contract with the Royal Government of Cambodia and not CAMS. In addition

the contract does not include any such clause preventing SCA to operate any other

location.

Should you need additional clarification or information, please contact us directly

on the address mentioned above.
