“Boeung Kak residents alarmed by newspaper calling their houses “ghost houses”, demand correction”

Jan. 26, 2011. Recently blocked KI-Media featured this piece today, from The Free Press Magazine:

“At 8:20AM on Wednesday, about 70 residents of the Boeung Kak community, who are now involved in a land dispute with the Shukaku Inc. Co. belonging to CPP tycoon Lao Meng Khin, have gathered to protest in front of the pro-government newspaper Koh Santepheap. The residents demanded a correction by the newspaper which labeled their houses as “ghost houses without people living inside.”

A representative of the residents told The Free Press Magazine over the phone that: “Right now, we are standing in front of the office of Koh Santepheap newspaper, next to the Russian Hospital. We do not agree with the newspaper’s publication on Tuesday, reporting that all the houses in Boeung Kak area have been evacuated and the houses there are ‘ghost houses’ and ‘air houses.’ We disagree and we want a correction, these are not ‘ghost houses’, they are houses that people still live inside. They made mistakes upon mistakes, we demanded that they made a correction, but they kept on making additional mistakes instead.”
