January 14, 2014 | Posted in: News
Between December 29 and January 2, 12 PLCN members and two commune council chiefs (no women), conducted forest patrols in six areas of Prey Lang. The patrols were organized in response to increasing reports of illegal logging, and uncovered [how much?] illegally logged luxury wood inside protected areas. The group confiscated two chainsaws and obtained signed declarations from four loggers who promised to stop logging activities. PLCN handed the chainsaws over to Boeng Char commune authorities.
