Governor Won’t Intervene in Grand Phnom Penh Borey Dispute

Following complaints from the residents of Grand Phnom Penh Borey, Governor Khoung Sreng said he cannot stop Chip Mong from filling in the borey’s pond.

Chip Mong’s plan to fill a 10-hectare pond in Grand Phnom Penh in Sen Sok District is private property and City Hall has no right to intervene, according to the city’s governor.

Responding to the representatives of 140 families who are protesting against Chip Mong’s decision to fill a 10-hectare pond in Grand Phnom Penh Borey, Phnom Penh governor Khuong Sreng said that his administration does not have a sufficient legal basis to intervene. Therefore, he said he could not prevent the filling in of the pond.

Sreng said that if the Phnom Penh administration intervenes to save the pond, it will be a violation of Article 85 and Article 88 of Land Law.
