Boeung Kak representative Sao Sareoun, released from pre-trial detention on Friday, held a press conference this morning at 9am. With his own trial possibly still ahead, Saroeun appealed for justice for all imprisoned Boeung Kak representatives, a solution to the years’ long land dispute, and for the 13 representatives still at Prey Sar to be released. Saroeun also told media that his family, like so many others, have lived in Boeung Kak since the 1980s, and have the paperwork to prove it, yet City Hall has repeatedly refused to recognise the families’ rights.
The press conference was attended by 70-80 people, among them Beoung Kak residents, friends, media, and undercover police.
