‘Nearly 10,000 squatters leaving Angkor park’

Some 9,900 families living in illegal structures at Cambodia’s Angkor Archeological Park have so far volunteered to resettle at new designated locations, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Manet said.


The 2,456ha relocated sites are situated in the Run Ta Ek area in Banteay Srei district and the Pak Sneng area in Angkor Thom district outside the ancient park.

“I’d like to thank all of you for voluntarily agreeing to move out of the Angkor Archeological Park to resettle at the new locations in order to preserve our ancestors’ world heritage site,” Hun Manet said in a speech during a visit to thousands of relocated households.
