Government dissolves two wildlife sanctuaries
19 March 2018
- At the request of the government, the King has issued a royal decree to dissolve two wildlife sanctuaries of more than 110,000 hectares in Battambang and Kratie provinces.

The royal decree by King Norodom Sihamoni is dated February 16, but was only disseminated by the Ministry of Environment over the weekend.

It orders the government to dissolve the Snuol Wildlife Sanctuary in Kratie covering 75,000 hectares and the Roneam Daun Sam Wildlife Sanctuary in Battambang province covering 39,961 hectares.

“Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Decho HE, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, is responsible for implementing this royal decree from the signed date onward,” it said.

Snuol Wildlife Sanctuary was established by a royal decree on November 1, 1993, and Roneam Daun Sam Wildlife Sanctuary was established by a royal decree issued by the late King Father on September 29, 2003.

Sao Sopheap, spokesman for the Ministry of Environment, said yesterday that the decision to dissolve the sanctuaries was made because the areas had lost potential as wildlife sanctuaries, with some areas having been provided to people as social land concessions.

Well that's one way to insult the late king. I hope he comes back and takes out his revenge.
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.
