The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL -

THE 1,294 fam­i­lies from Kam­pong Cham com­mune in Kratie prov­ince’s Sambo district who had filed a com­plaint de­mand­ing the re­moval of the Prey Lang Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary chief is set for an in­ter-min­is­te­rial hear­ing to­day. The vil­lagers ac­cused sanc­tu­ary chief Nhem Visal of abus­ing them and al­low­ing traders to log and haul tim­ber il­le­gally. A’Chen vil­lage chief Suon Hom ex­pressed hope that Visal and his as­so­ci­ates will be re­moved from their po­si­tions af­ter the hear­ing. “I will re­quest their re­moval … the chiefs and nor­mal of­fi­cers,” he said.
