Disputes over land fall in 2017

Wednesday, 4th January 2018

"The total number of land disputes and related protests fell in 2017, the Ministry of Land Management said while some NGOs claimed activists are to afraid of arrests to raise their concerns.

Land Management Minister Chea Sophara, speaking at his ministry’s annual meeting in Phnom Penh on Thursday, said the decline was a result of the ministry’s diligent efforts.

“The ministry has continued to work hard to register land and solve land disputes by all means possible, resulting in a remarkable decrease in the number of land disputes and protests,” he said.

He added that to succeed in the land sector, the ministry worked tirelessly to manage land usage and divided land with fairness and transparency.
