The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL -

SOME 100 for­mer brick and tile work­ers at Angkor En­ter­prise, rep­re­sent­ing 330 peo­ple, pe­ti­tioned Prime Min­is­ter Hun Sen’s Cab­i­net on Thursday, seek­ing $4,000 in com­pen­sa­tion each from their em­ploy­ers’ ac­counts di­rec­tor for sell­ing three pub­lic ponds that they had been us­ing. The work­ers claim the ponds were im­por­tant to the com­mu­nity of em­ploy­ees who live close to the com­pany, lo­cated in Meanchey dis­trict’s Chak An­gre Krom com­mune in Ph­nom Penh. The work­ers say they de­pended on the ponds to raise fish and grow veg­eta­bles. Cab­i­net of­fi­cial Kong Cham­roeun re­ceived the pe­ti­tion and said he will look into the case and is­sue a re­sponse. “I do not know when ex­actly, but I will re­spond to them very soon,” he said.
