After requesting a halt to the filling until negotiations could be conducted, residents frustrated with the lack of response are holding a press conference, today, May 28th, to air their grievances.
Residents have reported receiving threatening letters:
“Yesterday, I got an anonymous letter. They wrote that if we did not agree to move, they would arrest us and put us in jail from one year to five years, and fine each of us 5 million riels (US$1,250). But I don’t care; they just want to threaten us,” (From the Phnom Penh Post Article, May 28th)
