On September 17, Kratie-based PLCN representative Sam No intervened regarding a roadblock set up by Think Biotech Company in Kampong Cham commune, Sambo district and negotiated with the company to remove it, although it stayed in place. Then, on October 8, Sam No was asked by a Think Biotech representative to discuss the blocks again. He said the road was needed by local villagers to access farmland and enable them to collect resin and non-timber products from the forest. During the meeting, Sam No outlined the law of development and community law applicable to the case. In the end, Think Biotech removed the roadblock.
