Hun Sen Gives Land Titles to Families

Khmer Times Share:

Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday announced that he had instructed Takeo provincial governor Lay Vannak to give land titles to 31 families after they had asked him via Facebook to intervene in their long-running land dispute with the provincial department of commerce.
The dispute started in 2007 when the commerce department issued an order to demolish 5.1 hectares of rice fields in Roka commune.
“I got this suggestion and have discussed this case already. This evening [yesterday] the governor will prepare the documents and land title for these residents,” Mr. Hun Sen wrote in reply to their message.
Soun Sophal, a representative of the families, told Khmer Times that he was grateful for the prime minister’s intervention in saving the land they had farmed since 1986.
“After having the conflict, we used to summit complaints to provincial authorities but received no solution. But today Samdech Hun Sen announced that the land titles would be given to us. We are very happy and would like to say thank so much to Samdech.”
