VOA : Advocate in Washington To Push for Housing Rights

The director of a housing advocacy group is visiting Washington, in a bid to get more international support to stop land grabs and forced evictions in Cambodia.

Sia Phearum, director of the Housing Rights Task Force, told VOA Khmer he wants the international community to push the government to work harder at solving these issues.

He said he had meetings at the World Bank, which censured its own Phnom Penh office last year for failing to fully implement a land title program that might have prevented the forced evictions of the Boeung Kak lake project in Phnom Penh.
