The process of distribution of ground was suspended on Kampuchea following a decision of the government. That aims to alter the management of the grounds in this territory and to ensure a better equity on these concessions. It is indeed one of the territories where the tensions concerning the real estate cause serious problems. This measure was then taken for a balance and of a territorial good management.
At all events, this stop is only temporary according to the Hun Sen Prime Minister. He affirmed that these provisions were taken so that the benefit of the economic concessions are really reflected on the people. It is a decision emitted during the visit of Surya Subedi, the special protractor of UNO concerning the human rights in Kampuchea. It had the role of studying the distribution of the grounds.
Following that, the nontransparent assets of the companies as well as the wood traffics, of the companies will be sanctioned by a cancellation of the concessions. Those which forsake the investments will be also struck by this decision. This device was set up after the death of an ecological militant who denounced a wood traffic. That is due to the shootings of a military agent in a forest.
These events then were in the middle of criticisms on the way of proceeding of the members of the government and the police force, especially their impunity which was called into question. Since the totalitarian mode of the Khmer Rouges during the Seventies, the files concerning expropriations cause indeed violences.
Indeed, during this period, of the documents of title were destroyed. According to other militants, a rate bordering the 5% of the grounds in Kampuchea was given to the companies in relation to the capacity last year, that is to say about 800.000 hectares of grounds. And since the beginning of year, more than 300.000 hectares were granted.
