Minister declares Vietnam map issue resolved

Reader: សូមបើកមើលសន្ធិសញ្ញាខ្ញុំគេឆ្នាំ១៩៨៥

School of Vice: If all aspects of the Vietnam border mapping are proper and correct, then why oppose "verifications" that could only lend it credibility in the eyes of neutrals, critics and public alike?

Foreign Affairs Minister Hor Namhong has demanded an end to opposition politicking on the Vietnam border issue, following the second and “final” verification of maps used by the government to demarcate the eastern boundary against French charts.

Namhong, also a deputy prime minister, yesterday presided over the reception of 26 colonial-era “Bonne” 1/100,000-scale maps of the Kingdom, delivered courtesy of French President Francois Hollande from the National Geographic Institute in Paris.

During a three-hour ceremony at the Council of Ministers, the charts were overlaid with government maps.

As with a similar event in August involving maps loaned by the United Nations, the maps appeared to match. No questions were permitted. The efforts are in response to claims made by some opposition lawmakers that the government had used “fake” maps favourable to Vietnam to delineate the border.

Yesterday, Namhong, clearly irritated with the CNRP accusations, declared the matter finished, ruling out further “verifications” and saying he hoped the official French maps had “opened their eyes”.

“The border problem, the maps problem, should end. [We should] not let a political party take this problem and turn it into a campaign to incite Khmer citizens to oppose the government,” he said.

“It is not a different border. Why isn’t it different? Because we have used it for decades since 1985 when we signed a treaty with Vietnam to demarcate; we have used the maps Bonne 1/100,000 that we have had already; that’s why it is not different.”

Interior official calls for eviction suspension

Fri, 4 September 2015

The Interior Ministry has issued a letter calling for the removal of vendors at Ochheuteal Beach near Sihanoukville to be suspended, though it is unknown whether the incoming provincial governor will adhere to the call.

In the letter to the Preah Sihanouk provincial authority dated August 24, Interior Ministry spokesman General Khieu Sopheak said the ministry could help solve the problem.

“Can the governor please examine and solve this as it is [under] your authority,” the letter reads.

In July this year, then-Sihanoukville governor Chin Sarin issued a notice giving 26 families eight days to remove their stalls. However, no removal has taken place and Sarin has since been replaced by Y Sokleng.

Sokleng yesterday said he had no authority to oversee the eviction because the beach sits outside his jurisdiction.

“This letter is sent to the province, I am the city authority. I have no rights to give permission for people to sell at the beach or evict them.”

Instead, the decision will fall on Yun Min, incoming provincial governor who will officially take office Monday, following Chhit Sokhon’s retirement.

Thailand officials hit hurdle in investigation; no bomb match to suspects' DNA

An arrested suspect of the recent Bangkok blast

AFP/Reuters 4 Aug 2015

Forensic tests on two suspects have failed to find a link to the site of Thailand's deadliest bomb attack, police said, dealing a blow to the investigation.

DNA examination of the two foreigners tie them to a stash of explosives found in a Bangkok apartment block, but not to evidence collected at the Hindu Erawan Shrine where 20 people were killed on August 17, police said in a televised announcement.

The lack of a link complicated the high-profile case, with authorities no closer to establishing a motive for the attack carried out in one of Bangkok's busiest commercial areas.

The military speculated the perpetrators could have been members of a human trafficking gang frustrated by a police crackdown.

Thailand rejected the possibility a militant group was involved.

Thai police said neither of the two men detained over the deadly Bangkok attack last month were believed to be the main bombing suspect — seen on CCTV wearing a yellow t-shirt and placing a rucksack under a bench at Erawan shrine moments before the blast.

But police spokesman Praqut Thawornsiri said they were "definitely involved in the bombing".

They have been identified as two foreigners — Adem Karada@shivag and Yusufu Mieraili — but their nationalities remain unconfirmed.

Cash payout clears road in Kampot

Sen David, The Phom Penh Post
Fri, 4 September 2015

A community of fishermen in Kampot province whose homes had been blocking the construction of a road to a nearby beach accepted an offer yesterday to move elsewhere.

Local authorities descended on Tvea village on Wednesday evening, accusing the 21 families of living there illegally, and ordering them to move.

“We needed $6,000 per family to move but the authority offered us only $2,000”, said resident Ren Chan Da.

But, Chan Da said, a deal was reached during a meeting yesterday, when officials upped their offer to $3,000 per household.

Chan Sothea, another Tvea village resident, said the families accepted the deal because they were “afraid of violence” if they refused.

Taxis swarm forestry official pursuing van

Khouth Sophak Chakrya, The Phnom Penh Post
Fri, 4 September 2015

A forestry official in Mondulkiri province was surrounded by taxi drivers yesterday as they allegedly prevented him from tailing a suspected illegal timber dealer who was heading towards the Vietnam border.

Shortly after 10am yesterday, Heng Chantra, deputy director of Sen Monorom town’s Forestry Department, was surrounded on National Road 76 while following a van he suspected was loaded with protected luxury timber, police said.

The standoff lasted for about two hours, while the 20 purported taxi drivers argued that Chantra should face extortion charges for allegedly soliciting money from them.

“He was interrogated because of the allegations of those taxi drivers,” Heng Uong, Keo Seima district police chief, said.

However, Bou Bunchheat, O’Raing district police chief, said he had concluded that “the allegation made by those drivers was just a pretext to avoid accusations [of protecting illegal loggers]”, and Chantra was later released without charge.

Cambodia logs top spot

Cambodia's tree cover loss correlates with global rubber prices. SOURCE: WORLD RESOURCES INSTITUTE

Ethan Harfenist, The Phnom Penh Post
Fri, 4 September 2015

Forest loss in Cambodia has accelerated faster than any other country in the world since 2001, according to a leading resource-monitoring initiative.

Satellite data released by Global Forest Watch (GFW) suggest that Cambodia has experienced the highest rate of tree-cover loss in the world over the past 14 years, beyond that of normal heavy hitters Brazil and Indonesia, with the Kingdom quadrupling its tree cover loss in 2014 as compared to 2001.

The data, which come from the University of Maryland, assert that Cambodia has had a 14.4 per cent increase in its rate of forest loss per year.

The next biggest offender, Sierra Leone, experienced a 12.6 per cent rate, while ASEAN neighbours Malaysia and Vietnam both recorded 6.1 per cent rates of tree-cover loss during the same time period.

Although the data do not account for tree cover gain and only measure the removal and death of trees, the data nonetheless are “of great concern”, the groups says.

“Since 2001, tree cover loss in Cambodia accelerated faster than in any other country in the world,” said an analysis by the World Resources Institute. “Although Cambodia’s tree cover loss peaked in 2010, it remains extremely high.”

According to Global Forest Watch, Cambodia lost a total of 237,875 hectares of tree cover in 2010. Since then, the numbers have declined, though the country still recorded a loss of 177,969 hectares in 2014.

Koh Kong Police releases 17 protesters

Published: 03-Sep-15 05:22PM

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald)—Police in Koh Kong province on Wednesday late evening set free 17 people, including for local rights workers who were arrested over a protest in the province.

Brigadier General Sam Khitvien, Koh Kong provincial police chief, said that the 17 people included right workers, NGOs activists, journalists, and protesters arrested on Wednesday morning for staging illegal protest.

Police advised the detainees, especially the rights workers and journalists to think about their activities in observing or participating in the protest that could make authorities hard to identify them among the protesters.

The brief detain was made to question them about the two-week long illegal protest demanding court for release of three activists who were placed in prison since August 17th after being charged with crime.

Two cops, others face drug-trafficking charge

Buth Reaksmey Kongkea, The Phnom Penh Post
Fri, 4 September 2015

Four people – including two police officers – were tried at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday for allegedly selling a small amount of methamphetamines to an undercover police officer earlier this year.

Presiding judge Ly Lipmeng identified the accused as Ministry of Interior economic police officers Lun Pha, 47, and Suon Lenin, 34, as well as tuk-tuk driver Muth Thim, 38, and businesswoman Morn Dalin, 30.

According to Lipmeng, on March 8 Pha paid Thim $100 to pick up the drugs from Morn Dalin and bring them to him. After receiving the drugs, Pha allegedly gave them Lenin, who then met an undercover officer posing as a buyer.

As soon as he had handed over the seven grams of meth, police surrounded and arrested him.

Dalin was later arrested in Kampong Cham province based on information from Pha and Thim.

០៤ កញ្ញា ២០១៥ / 04 September 2015 - A historical reminder

The issue of national borders and Cambodia's territorial integrity is not an issue between Khmers and Khmers and is not an issue between the CPP and the CNRP either. In fact it is an issue between the Khmers and the Yuons and this issue dates back to many centuries ago (for this historical reminder the word "Vietnamese" did not exist at the times we are referring to). Cambodia started to lose large portions of its territory to its Eastern neighbour since 400 years ago, more precisely since the reign of King Chey Chetha II (1618-1627). Since then Cambodia's territory has been continuously shrinking. At those times the CPP and the CNRP did not exist yet. Therefore, in 2015 and onwards, all Khmer patriots must not fall into the division trap laid by those who want to swallow our land and they must unite to defend their motherland.

Young boy killed by hornets

Mom Kunthear, The Phnom Penh Post
Fri, 4 September 2015

A 5-year-old boy was killed and two of his older siblings injured on Wednesday evening after they were attacked by hornets in Kampong Thom province’s Santuk district, police said yesterday.

Soeurng Phea, chief of police in Santuk district’s Brasat commune, said yesterday that the three siblings were following their parents to work in their rice field about 2 kilometres from their house.

“On the way, those kids saw a nest of hornets and they grabbed sticks to hit the nest, making the hornets come out and sting them,” he said.

“The victim’s brother and sister, who were seriously injured, escaped from the scene, but the victim could not run.”

Phea said that victim Din Samnang was stung about 50 times all over his body, and had been sent to a private clinic.

Fri, 4 September 2015

Both the Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea defence teams yesterday confirmed they would abstain from making document presentations a day after the trial chamber ruled that the prosecution’s use of written witness statements – which the teams considered inappropriate – was indeed permissible.

Samphan defender Anita Guisse, relayed that neither team would be presenting, ostensibly in silent protest of the ruling against the previous objections from the Chea defence.

Last week, both teams walked out of hearings after the chamber rebuffed a challenge to the prosecution’s use of the statements, whose evidentiary nature, the defence held, could not be questioned.

Guisse, however, confirmed that her side will, in fact, be providing commentary feedback to the prosecution’s presentation while atypically silent Chea defender, Victor Koppe said “no, we will not”.

Koppe had previously said that, for his team, the decision to bow out of presenting documents hinged on whether the prosecution continued to rely heavily upon the witness statements, called “written records of interviews” (WRIs).

NEC chief still firmly in place

The National Election Committee has no plan to replace its secretary general, Tep Nytha, despite a pledge after the revamped body’s approval earlier this year to name someone new to the post within three months.

NEC spokesman Hang Puthea, who in June said the body would reshuffle within three months and select a new official to run its secretariat, yesterday told the Post the bipartisan group had yet to discuss replacing Nytha, head administrator of the NEC’s former iteration, which was often criticised for being pro-ruling party.

“We will have [these talks] in the future; until now, the NEC has not had plans to discuss this,” Puthea said.

Puthea said the committee had been busy pushing reforms, including digitising voter lists, a trial for which has been pushed back to November following problems with funding.

A restructuring of the body, however, is currently being undertaken, following the approval of two sub-decrees last month, allowing it to form a new administration to help organise the 2017 and 2018 local and national elections, Puthea said.

Draft petroleum law to be in place by the year’s end

Sor Chandara, The Phnom Penh Post
Tue, 1 September 2015

A draft of the long-anticipated petroleum law is 80 per cent complete, according to a Ministry of Mines and Energy official, and will put in place price mechanisms to ensure globally representative and competitive fuel costs.

“We want to make sure the draft law is in compliance with ministry’s policy and consistency with other natural resources laws and regulations and international best practices as well as to attract investment in this new industry,” said Keo Tourt, director of administration at the Mines and Energy Ministry’s General Department of General Affairs.

Tourt said the legislation will be in the form of a sub-decree and is being worked on in collaboration with experts and consultants on the management of oil and gas pricing.

“It is a well-known fact that oil and gas resources are both a gift and a curse. It is how we manage it that makes it a gift or a curse for the people and its economy,” he added.

Tourt said that while the law would look at pricing, it will also ensure petroleum and other relevant products would have to meet certain quality standards, as determined by the ministry in charge.

Bin Many Mialia, marketing division manager at PTT (Cambodia) said that while he hasn’t seen a copy of the draft law yet, he was unsure what kind of price mechanism would be applicable in Cambodia’s case.

PHNOM PENH— Foreign Minister Hor Namhong says the ruling party has done enough to prove it is using the proper maps in its border demarcation efforts with Vietnam, following the inspection of a new set of maps Thursday provided by France.

The opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party has been pushing the government to end alleged border encroachment by Vietnam and has claimed the government is not using the right maps in its negotiations. Thursday’s map review looked at 26 map sections provided by the French Embassy.

“The border and map issue should be ended at this point,” Hor Namhong told reporters following the review. “Please, political parties, stop using this issue to campaign and to instigate Khmers to oppose the government.”

Hor Namhong said the opposition has “attacked me brutally,” over the map and border issue, but he said the maps they propose are unacceptable and come from “markets” and “the street.” The French map sections come from France’s Institute of Geography and Forestry.

Var Kimhong, head of the Cambodian Border Committee, said Cambodia uses the same maps as those provided by France in its discussions with Vietnam over border demarcation.

2015-09-03 RFA

Hours after French officials handed over a set of maps to Cambodia on Thursday, the government border committee announced that the documents matched its own, calling an end to an ongoing political dispute over the demarcation of the Southeast Asian nation’s border with neighboring Vietnam.

The opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), a merged political grouping that includes the Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) in the Senate, has accused Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government of ceding land to Vietnam based on its own set of incorrect charts that adhere to a 1985 agreement signed by the two countries during Vietnam’s occupation of Cambodia.

Former colonial ruler France had agreed to lend a set of maps to Cambodia following a request from Hun Sen, who also requested the same maps from the United Nations, United States and United Kingdom.

“The French maps match the Cambodian maps that are being used to demarcate Cambodia-Vietnam border,” Var Kimhong, chairman of Cambodia’s border committee, told reporters during a verification ceremony in Phnom Pehn.

Ayanna Runcie, The Phnom Penh Post
Sat, 29 August 2015

Australian solar energy company, Star8 International, yesterday opened its first showroom in Cambodia, near the Phnom Penh International Airport.

The company factory, located 15 minutes away from the new showroom, has been manufacturing a range of solar powered products – from tuk-tuks to buses and solar tiling – since it first opened 18 months ago.

According to Jacob Maimon, chief executive of Star8, the company has invested between $8 million and $9 million in Cambodia and produces about 200 to 300 vehicles a month.

“My goal is to sell 1,000 vehicles per month, and eventually I want to take over the whole [motor] industry, where in the next five years there will only be solar on the road,” he said.

Maimon said that Star8 products appealed to the environmentally conscious consumers, and Cambodia provided an ideal market for his company to launch from.

“The reason we decided to do [business] in Cambodia is because the roads are very tough, the sun is very good, and if our cars and vehicles can run here, they can run anywhere in the world,” Maimon said.

The Star8 chief declined to comment on current sales, other than to say the firm had received a “very positive reaction” from both the public and private sectors.

Golden memories ... 'The huddled masses'

Cambodian refugee crisis 1979-1980's

Syrian refugee crisis 2015- [Over a million Syrian civilians have been displaced by the conflict in Syria according to various sources and reports].

The Guardian view on Europe’s refugee crisis: a little leadership, at last

Angela Merkel has faced up to how a humanitarian emergency is threatening a continent’s defining values. The rest of Europe should pay attention, and follow suit

Visionary language is rarely heard from pro-Europeans these days; attempts to cast the EU as a morally based endeavour risk ridicule and scorn. The brave stance that Angela Merkel, not an easy woman to mock, has taken on the refugee and migrant crisis thus deserves close attention. The German chancellor has taken the lead on an issue that has, for too long, produced nothing but squabbling among member states, and fodder for the populists who would wall their countries off from the outside world.

Hundreds of thousands are fleeing war zones and persecution in Europe’s worst refugee crisis since the second world war. The situation is not likely to change any time soon, and so it is welcome that someone with clout is taking the high ground, instead of pandering to demagoguery. Mrs Merkel has put it bluntly: “If Europe fails on the question of refugees, its close connection with universal civil rights will be destroyed.” Days after European opinion was shaken by the discovery of 71 decomposing bodies of migrants inside a truck on an Austrian highway, the chancellor is sending out a strong message. Mrs Merkel had already taken a unique initiative in announcing that all Syrian refugees would be eligible to claim asylum in Germany – unilaterally, and rightly, waiving the so-called Dublin procedures, under which displaced people must claim asylum in the first EU state that they arrive in.

Could this be a turning point? Throughout Europe, there is a growing realisation that nations need to act together – not “talk at each other”, as Mrs Merkel puts it – in the face of an ongoing tragedy that has claimed 2,500 lives during 2015. But a new impulse to help jostles with resurgent xenophobia and indifference towards those in need of protection: witness the outrageous noises coming from some capitals about admitting only Christian, and not Muslim, refugees. Witness also the fences erected, in Hungary and elsewhere, to try to stem the flow of the desperate. Some of Europe’s oldest democracies are content to trample on basic notions of solidarity, by rejecting all talk of fair sharing of asylum seekers. Britain’s record remains particularly dismal, the government having announced that only 1,000 Syrians would be granted asylum. It was heartening to hear Yvette Cooper argue, in explicitly moral terms, for a tenfold increase in that figure on Tuesday.

Single rice brand stirs the pot

Wed, 2 September 2015

The Agriculture Ministry and the Cambodia Rice Federation (CRF) are at odds over the branding of Cambodia’s premium jasmine rice that would help differentiate it from similar varieties sold by Thailand.

The CRF is working on a new brand name that it hopes will help distinguish Cambodian rice in the international market.

The national rice body wants to bring all varieties of jasmine rice under an umbrella brand name that it plans to announce at the Cambodia Rice Forum in November.

“We have set up the market promotion executive committee for naming the quality rice as the trademark, because so far our rice is just known as fragrant rice, because we do not have a specific name,” the CRF’s acting secretary-general Moul Sarith said.

Sarith said that inconsistent labelling of Cambodian rice among exporters was diminishing the collective strength of the rice sector.

Cambodia’s jasmine rice can be grown from multiple varieties of seeds, including Phka Romdeng, Phka Romeat, and the Kingdom’s distinguished variety, Phka Rumduol – a long-grain, aromatic type of rice and named after Cambodia’s national flower.

Driving Cambodia to become an environmentally-sustainable nation

Fri, 28 August 2015 ppp

There’s been a lot of Japanese spirit and determination hard at work in the Kingdom of Wonder for over a decade, quietly contributing towards ensuring a more environmentally-sustainable nation. Since 2001, the Organization for Industrial, Spiritual & Cultural Advancement (OISCA) Cambodia, part of OISCA International, has been steadily upholding the values of the original movement that began in Japan over 50 years ago.

The Cambodian chapter, established by Forte Insurance CEO Charles Cheo as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, has accomplished much since it first donated clothes in 2001 to the Samdach Raksmey Bosana Foundation to support poor families. Over the years, OISCA Cambodia has played a role in advancing Cambodia’s environmentally sustainable development through a holistic approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of agriculture, ecological integrity and the human spirit.

Its activities have included donations to Red Cross Cambodia for flood victims in 2002, a two-year school improvement project at a primary school in Kandal province, a three-year mangrove rehabilitation campaign in Koh Kong province and a four-year “Forest Refresh” project to plant trees at Angkor Wat.

The highlight, however, is the Children’s Forest Program (CFP). Started in Japan in 1991 and introduced here in 2009 to primary schools in Kampong Cham province, the CFP encourages children to realize the importance of a sustainable environment via tree-planting campaigns. Its pilot project saw the participation of nine primary schools and a resort and resulted in 5,326 individuals planting 2,845 local tree species on 41,852 square meters of land.

Since then, OISCA Cambodia’s CFP has expanded to encompass secondary schools and the community nationwide, who have participated in environmental workshops, recycling activities and other relevant projects. The CFP in Cambodia today is part of OISCA International’s success story in 33 countries - an initiative that has seen 4,650 schools planting 6.9 million trees.

Bayern Munich to set up refugees 'training camp'

 BBC 3 September 2015

School of Vice: Nothing touches the heart like an act of human kindness towards fellow humans in need.


Bayern Munich are to set up a 'training camp' for refugees coming into Germany and will donate 1m euros (£730,000) for refugee projects.
Parts of Europe have seen an influx of migrants arriving, with many in Hungary wishing to travel to Germany.

The Bundesliga champions plan to provide food, German lessons and football equipment for children. 

"Bayern sees it as its social responsibility to help the refugees," said club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. 

The number of migrants entering Europe has reached record levels this year, largely driven by the conflict in Syria. Germany expects to take in 800,000 asylum seekers this year - four times last year's total.

Bayern, who have won the German league title 25 times and are five-time European champions, will also highlight the current refugee crisis in their next home match against Augsburg.
The game on 12 September will see the starting line-up enter the Allianz Arena "holding the hand of a German child and a refugee's child".

Bayern's rivals and current league leaders Borussia Dortmund invited 220 refugees to watch the side play Norwegian side Odd in the Europa League last Thursday. Rivals Mainz gave out 200 free tickets to their home match against Hannover last weekend.
Banners carrying positive messages in support of refugees were evident at last weekend's Bundesliga matches.

China puts on military display to mark Japan's defeat in World War II

Beijing has hosted a spectacular military show marking 70 years since the end of the Second World War. The parade comes amid tensions in the region over China's military assertiveness.
President Xi Jinping's armed forces put on a show of force on Thursday, with marching troops and nuclear-capable missiles on display at Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

Speaking ahead of the parade, Xi announced his country would "not seek hegemony" in the world and that Beijing was planning to reduce its army by 300,000 troops to make it more efficient. The People's Liberation Army currently has 2.3 million soldiers.
"The experience of war makes people value peace even more," Xi said, adding that "China will never seek to expand and will never inflict the tragedies it suffered in the past upon others."
Victory over Japan
Thursday's parade marked 70 years after Japan formally surrendered on the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. Beijing remembers the day as the end of the "Chinese People's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression and the World Anti-Fascist War."
Addressing the gathering, Xi said China's "total victory" over Tokyo in World War II reestablished it as a "major country." The Chinese president described the conflict as "a decisive battle between justice and evil, between light and darkness" and said his people fought gallantly against "Japanese militarist aggressors, thus preserving China's 5,000-year-old civilization and upholding the cause of peace."
More than 12,000 soldiers marched past President Xi. Almost 1,000 foreign soldiers, including Russian troops, also participated in the ceremony.
The parade showcased the range of ballistic missiles, tanks and armored vehicles - many never in public before - in China's possession, while advanced fighter jets and bombers flew overhead.
The Chinese SU-35 is expected to be on display on Thursday
Xi's most eminent guest was Russian President Vladimir Putin, who invited his Chinese counterpart for the victory day parade in Moscow earlier this year. Xi's South Korean counterpart Park Geun-Hye, Jacob Zuma of South Africa and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon were also in attendance.

'Rubber interests behind rape charge'

Pisey* was shocked to learn her beloved fiance had been imprisoned for raping her.
The 16-year-old high school dropout met her partner, Yan Mao – who at 31 years old is nearly twice her age – when he started working for her parents as a farmhand more than two years ago.
“We just exchanged a few words the first time we met. I only started feeling interested in him after he was here for a few months,” she said from the floor of her family’s tiny stilt house, which is buried in forestland in Mondulkiri’s remote Sre Chhouk commune.
Pisey, whose youthful face and slight frame make her appear even younger than her years, said she “fell in love with Mao in the planting season”.
It was then that “he told me he loved me, but I never confessed that I loved him until later on”, she added, giggling nervously.
Among the ethnic Phnong – a minority group that populates swathes of Mondulkiri – age-gap romances are a cultural norm.
Sourn Butmao, executive director of the NGO Minority Rights Organisation, which works with indigenous communities across Cambodia, said it is common among many of the country’s hill tribes, particularly the Phnong, to get engaged as young as 14 years old, often to someone much older.
“It is up to their agreement with each other,” he said.
In Sre Chhouk, the couple’s families and friends encouraged the blossoming relationship.
“He visited her many times and they fell in love with each other,” said Pisey’s mother, Brorb Sokha.
When the plants came to be harvested, Mao’s parents arrived with rice, white wine and 10,000 riel (about $2.50) – gifts symbolising the beginning of the couple’s engagement.
Both sets of parents thumb-printed a contract formalising their betrothal.
“By tradition, this means that they booked her as their future daughter-in-law,” Sokha said, waving around the document. “We needed to wait until she reached childbearing age – 16 years old – to have the wedding.”

The Lao parliament has approved the concession agreement for the controversial Don Sahong hydropower dam and expects to begin construction before the end of the year, according to an official in Vientiane.

In a statement via email, Daovong Phonekeo, director general of the Energy Policy and Planning Department at the Lao Ministry of Energy and Mines, confirmed the country’s National Assembly had given the green light to the agreement with Malaysian developer MegaFirst.

He said a power purchase agreement between state-owned Electricite du Laos and the company was awaiting a signature and construction was expected to begin before the year’s end.

The 260-megawatt dam is about 2 kilometres upstream from Cambodia’s border. Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand oppose its construction without further studies, citing the potential ecological impacts.

Laos says it’s put in place the necessary mitigation measures.

Environmental group International Rivers said it was concerned about the contract negotiations proceeding while regional discussions were still under way.


Found! Endangered fishing cat in coastal Cambodia

September 3, 2015 by Louisa Mckerrow
Pictures of the endangered fishing cat – the first in Cambodia for more than a decade – provide welcome evidence that these elusive felines still survive in some parts of the country.

Cambodia's Centre for Biodiversity Conservation (CBC) continues to make history with a camera trap survey revealing that the Endangered fishing cat (Prionailurus viverrinus) can still be found in some parts of the country.

The camera traps have provided the first official records for the species since 2003, capturing images and footage of three individuals at two different coastal sites.

Researchers from the CBC, a partnership between Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and the Royal University of Phnom Penh, were thrilled by the findings which have allayed grave fears about the status of these animals in Cambodia.

FFI project leader, Ms Ret Thaung said that the fishing cat's preference for wetland habitat had led to severe population declines throughout much of its Asian range.

"Asian wetland habitats are rapidly disappearing or being modified by human activity, so fishing cat numbers have declined dramatically over the last decade and the remaining population is thought to be small," she said.

"Fishing cats are believed to be extinct in Vietnam, while there are no confirmed records in Lao PDR and only scarce information about the species in Thailand and Cambodia.

"It is clear that urgent steps are needed to protect these cats from snaring and trapping and to conserve their wetland habitats – but to do this effectively we needed to get a better idea of where they live."

"Overwhelming discovery"

The CBC's camera trap survey was designed to address some of these knowledge gaps. Following leads gathered during interviews with local villagers, the experts set up 32 cameras at five locations and left them to record what passed by.

Koh Kong crackdown

“It reaffirms what we had known all along, and that is the fact that the criminal enterprise that controls Koh Kong is growing uneasy about seeing local people standing up for what is right and just.”

Seventeen human rights monitors, journalists and protesters were arrested in Koh Kong province yesterday morning when police and alleged “instigators” cracked down on a peaceful demonstration calling for the release of three imprisoned environmental activists.

The group was held at the provincial police station for about eight hours, where they were interrogated about their “involvement” in the protest before eventually being released at 6:15pm.

Speaking from the police station, In Kongchit, a provincial coordinator for rights group Licadho who was among those arrested, said he had been questioned about the purpose of the protest and who was leading it.

“Today, they started arresting human rights monitors and journalists who had not even been involved in the actual protests, and that is (at least in Koh Kong) unheard of.”

In the morning, about 100 people from Chi Khor Krom commune had gathered outside of Koh Kong Provincial Court to call for a solution to a land dispute they are engaged in, and for the release of three activists arrested last month over their activities against Direct Access – a Vietnamese company accused of illegally dredging a local estuary.

Yesterday’s action was the latest in a string of demonstrations to have taken place outside of the court since the three activists – who are affiliated with environmental NGO Mother Nature – were arrested two weeks ago.

Kongchit said things proceeded calmly until a second group of “protesters” arrived demanding that the activists return home, and attempting to forcefully break up the gathering.
