Foreign Companies Withdrawing From Boeung Kak Project

October 3, 2011


This is important news related to the controversial Boeng Kak investment project that has led to land grabbing and forced and violent evictions affecting thousands of poor families in Phnom Penh.

Following numerous and increasingly serious incidents between the concerned Shukaku company and the Phnom Penh Municipality authorities on the one hand, and the local population on the other hand, foreign companies associated with, and providing funds to, Shukaku, decided to withdraw from the controversial business association and project, therefore inevitably stalling and jeopardizing the project in the near future.

On September 19, 2011 the Sam Rainsy Party declared the Shukaku company “enemy of the Khmer people” (please read the statement in English below or in Khmer at http://tinyurl.com/3t8ravf).

We congratulate all those foreign companies for their wise decision to suspend their association with an enemy of the Khmer people.

For more details on this issue, please listen to Sam Rainsy’s interview with Candle Light Radio in Phnom Penh on October 1, 2011 at

Which one? Is it the one from Africa?
Oftentimes, we heard the announcements of the ``ends of the world``! The next day, life goes on as usual. May be I invented something here to make noise. Excuse me!

The foreign partners of Shukaku should have withdrawn a long time ago. If they did maybe the Boeung Kak Lake residents would not have suffered like this. The project might be stalled, but that doesn't mean that the Boeung Kak Lake residents will get their land and houses back. Shame on the Hun Sen regime.

How many of them are withdrawing? Ten, twenty? I agree. There is only one left, a Chinese one, Mongolia...!
Your statement is unsubstantiated and meaningless.
