Kampong Thom – PLCN Called to Sandan District Hall:

November 5, 2013 | Posted in: News

On October 22, seven PLCN members (all men) were summoned to the Sandan District Hall by the governor over the allegation of clearing forest land located in Kbal Kla CF. The land had been cleared illegally by 45 migrant families for agricultural use, which had been reported to authorities by PLCN. PLCN representatives Hoeun Sopheap and Vong San from Kampong Thom proposed two actions to PLCN members and others who attended the discussion. One option is to make a claim against the migrant families in the provincial court in an effort to preserve the CF. The second option is to allow the families to continue clearing land if the community is no longer interested in maintaining the CF. No outcome was reported.
