Every statement, every word will be heard by the Boeung Kak Lake community entangled in a 4-year struggle to keep their land (see here, here and here): Kep Chuktema, Governor of Phnom Penh, stated on television that those left without a land title at Boeung Kak have no right to claim rightfull ownership.

Later they went to the Ministry of Interior to file a complaint.
