MP Son Chhay met with more than 250 residents of Sdao commune, listening to them discussing about their land issues. A man raised the issue of representatives from the Pristine Harvest, a Malaysian company, who intimidated him just for cutting down trees on his own property. A young man stood up and asked: “How come a foreign company has legal rights to Cambodian forest and woodland but people like us who live in this forest don’t?”
A woman told the crowd that “youth volunteers” refused to measure and to grant her title to the one hectare land property plot that her family cleared.
