Fresh Protest Against “On-Site Development” of Boeung Kak

Phnom Penh Capital Hall
Phnom Penh, 7th July 2011
This morning at 8:40am, a handful of people complained against “on-site development” of Boeung Kak area.
Phnom Penh Capital Hall has an honor to inform the public that, for the last few days there was a small group of people who are not representatives of the remaining Boeung Kak Lake residents, with incitement by some outsiders, caused public disorder.
Phnom Penh Capital Hall would like to clarify that Capital Hall is not in the position to meet the request asking for about 1,000 units of flat with the size of 4m by 16m each. However, the Capital Hall would make a proposal to the Government to consider providing the remaining residents to stay on the site; but only after the technical group complete their necessary work.
Once again, the Capital Hall would like to appeal to the remaining residents to stay calm and not to believe in any incitement by the outsider to confront with the authorities for their own gains.
Such continuing protests against Phnom Penh authorities this morning is unacceptable. Therefore, as local authority, appropriate measures must be taken to maintain public order for all capital dwellers.
Phnom Penh Capital Hall would like to appeal to all remaining residents to be patient and give the authority time to do the comprehensive study and submit to the Royal Government for consideration.
