CPN reported that on February 25, around 55 people, the majority women, conducted a community forest patrol during which they came across three men with three trucks loaded with illegally logged trees. The patrollers confronted the men and asked them to sign a contract promising to stop their activities. Voice of Democracy Radio reported that one of the trucks may have had links to the deputy district commander and there were suspicions that some of the wood may have been meant for use in his office renovation.
