via Phnom Penh Post, 27 October 2019: Illegal construction encroaching over heritage land.
The Apsara Authority will dismantle constructions that have encroached on cultural heritage land in two locations of the Trapaing Hephka irrigation dyke area and forward one of the cases to court because the owner refused to follow the authority’s instruction.
In early October, Apsara Authority’s General Department director-general Hang Pov sent a series of letters to three individuals – Chhit Sodaing, Yun Sokhorn and Pum Sokhunthea – ordering them to dismantle the constructions.
The constructions have encroached on the southern part of the area in Bos Kralanh village, Chreav commune of Siem Reap province.
The Apsara Authority has also taken administrative action, including building a case file to be referred to the court as the residents had failed to cooperate.
