Lakesiders make plea to Hun Sen

Khouth Sophakchakrya , Phnom Penh Post, Sep. 01 2011

An official from Prime Minster Hun Sen’s cabinet has asked 47 families cut out of a land compensation deal at Boeung Kak lake to provide proof they have been living within a 133-hectare area where residents are set to be evicted.

Families from Boeung Kak’s villages 6, 22 and 24 in Daun Penh’s Srah Chak commune, yesterday handed Nou Ra, an official from the Cabinet of the Prime Minster, a letter asking the premier to intervene against land officials who “violated” his decision.

The villagers were sent invitations to apply for land tit-les after the Prime Minister’s decision to provide 756 families living beside Phnom Penh’s Boeung Kak lake with 12.44 hectares of land for onsite relocation was ann-ounced on August 18.
