Cambodian families struggle to regain lands seized by investors

(LANKAPUVATH | CAMBODIA) – Dozens of Cambodian families have continued to protest for more than 20 years, to demand the return of lands in Sihanoukville province, which were allocated for the construction of public parks in 1996, but it was later revealed that the lands were sold to the private sector to establish projects for foreign investors and give them special privileges.

Those affected by the projects said that they will continue to protest in all its forms until they obtain their rights and reach a solution that satisfies all parties.

They added that there are about 104 families affected, but only 24 families have received compensation so far.

In 2007 and 2008, the province issued a title deed to the rich in secret.

It is reported that real estate in Sihanoukville reached record levels of high value due to the influx of Chinese investors to it.
