Phnom Penh Municipal Governor Pa SocheatVong has appealed to non-governmental organizations to “release” Boeung Kak and BoreyKeila activists and stop taking them as “hostage”.

The Municipal Governor added that activists can stage the protest for whatever reason although the Boeung Kak case is close to being completely solved. “The people got their compensation. Now they’re protesting again after being instigated by outsiders (NGOs) because they’re not happy with the government, even though they realized that their actions are illegal.”
He appeals to the NGOs to stop inciting the communities to protest, release them and don’t hold them as their hostage anymore. He said he will not let these NGOs to incite insecurities and provoke to create disorder in the capital
This is a first warning from Phnom Penh Municipal authorities to non-governmental organizations that have got involved in and taken advantages from the protests while only 6 families remained unsolved so far.

The municipal governor added that royal government of Cambodia and the armed forces have exerted hard-work and lots of efforts to maintain the security and peace for the sake of development of our nation. “We will not allow some non-governmental organizations to make trouble and provoke insecurity in our society. It is because of such kind of actions are unacceptable”, said Mr. Socheat
