Armed Guards Descend on Protesters From Luxury Gated Community

About 30 armed guards descended on a leafy Chip Mong-owned gated complex on Monday evening after residents — including Acleda Bank CEO In Channy — protested a plan to fill in a water feature, with some homeowners hanging protest banners on their mansions.

“They came to remove the banners while I was looking after my two children,” said resident Por Punareay, who argued that she was within her rights to put a banner on her gate. “They were all wearing uniforms. … I still feel frightened.”

The residents are seeking to halt Chip Mong’s plan to fill a 10-hectare pond near the golf course on the property.
