Residents approximately ten families from Beoung Kok and Borey Kyla communities were going to Phnom Penh Municipality to demand for the solution toward land dispute that has been so far a controversial problem.

On Monday 15th December 2014, from 8:30 am to 10:20 am, the 6 representatives of victim families (three were from Beoung Kok, and the other three were from Borey Kyla) were allowed to meet administrative officer of Phnom Penh Municipality to talk about the solution for the land dispute and demand for the release of activists who have been in prison lately.

After the meeting, Mrs. Hong Bunheng, a resident of Beoung Kok community, said that Phnom Penh Municipality would bring the solution for this land dispute soon by submitting it to National Assembly. She further told that until now, we had not seen any solution for this land dispute between Beoung Kok’s residents and Sokaku Company made by National Assembly yet. She also added that she and the other residents of Beoung Kok community would march through National Assembly in order to get the response toward the solution for place to live and for a living in this week or next week.

The representative of Borey Kyla, after a meeting with the officer from Phnom Penh Municipality, said that she was demanding for the solution for the land dispute on 9th and 10th building project between Borey Kyla and Phan Ei Mech Company which belonged to Suy Sophan. Moreover, she also added that she wanted to get back the building number 9 and 10 because there are market and school, which is comfortable for living.
