Boeng Kak Project Breaks Ground Amid Continued Protests

CPP Senator Lao Meng Khin was joined by his wife as they broke ground on the controversial project taking place at Phnom Penh’s Boeng Kak Lake. They unveiled the architectural renderings of the towers to be built on what used to be the site of the lake, but has been granted to the Senator and his company Shukaku as an economic land concession. More than 1,000 families are still seeking compensation for the loss of their homes as a result of the evictions from the creation of the project and closing of the lake.
