Arson Attempt at Home of Families in Bitter Land Dispute
The Cambodia Dialy, 2014-03-18
An attacker on Monday set fire to a building occupied by three families in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kok district who are at the center of a long-running land dispute with a private company, according to a joint statement by five local rights groups.

Hun Sen said in a speech last Wednesday that the three laws – the Law on the Organization and Functioning of the Courts, the Law on the Amendment of the Supreme Council of Magistracy and the Law on the Status of Judges and Prosecutors – were in the final stages of drafting, and would hopefully be implemented by mid-year.

Cambodia’s Appeals Court on Tuesday rejected a request for bail by 21 people who have been held in custody for more than a month.
