Villager representatives questioned in land dispute case

The Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court on September 8 questioned two plaintiffs representing a group of families who filed a lawsuit against four officials and 13 local businessmen alleging that they engaged in bribery and forged documents to claim ownership of 100 hectares of land in a long-running conflict.

The same family representatives also filed a separate complaint on August 31 at the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) against the three local officials they accuse of bribing others and taking bribes in exchange for creating land titles at the request of businessman Tuy Vanny.

Teng Samai, the Banteay Meanchey deputy prosecutor in charge of the case, said he had finished questioning the plaintiffs but had yet to recommend any charges.
