Kandal Lakes Claimed as State Property to Prevent Land Grabs

Kandal lakes deemed to be property of state
30 August 2018
Four natural lakes totalling 300 hectares in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district have been designated state properties while more are set to have the same status.

The designation followed illegal encroachment by individuals who intended to claim the lakes as their own, said Kandal provincial governor Mao Phirun. He said the lakes are being preserved in the public interest.

“We designate the lakes as state property to prevent illegal grabbing. More lakes will be preserved,” he said.

Sa’ang district governor Nhem Vandin said on Tuesday that he had already listed a number of lakes, among them Boeung Tnaot which totals 83 hectares; Boeung Tek Chhor Cheang, 11 hectares; Boeung Torteng Thngay, over 40 hectares; and Boeung Rean Mean, over 135 hectares.

Vandin said the authorities are working to stop unlawful demarcation of the lakes.

“On June 21, district authorities went to remove more than 270 poles that were placed on the Five Hundred lake. Offenders had erected them in an attempt to claim the lakes as theirs.

“We’ll preserve the land and lakes. It’s more than 400 hectares in total – stretching to the Yuvachun reservoir that itself spans over 100 hectares. Intruders had attempted to erect posts to grab them, causing us a lot of headaches,” Vandin said.

It's good to hear more lakes will receive the same level of protection as Bang Yeak Loam.

I dont know if anyone else noticed, if you go past Otres 2, and keep going to where there is little development, there is a military post. They are there to stop illegal land grabs.

I have not been there since last year, but they are probably still there.

Are they talking State Public land, or State Private land. ? There is a big difference.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Very good to have some honest to goodness legal landgrabbing instead of that nasty illegal landgrabbing.

TIC. Yeah, it's great to see the state stepping in to grab lakes and land to prevent illegal land grabs.
Just like they are protecting the iconic crater lake of Yeak Loem near Banlung:
