Tuk-Tuk, Motorbike Drivers Want Vehicles Back

A dozen tuk-tuk and motorcycle-taxi drivers who say their vehicles were confiscated after police suppressed a demonstration in Phnom Penh last week gathered outside City Hall on Wednedsay to demand the return of their property. The drivers waited from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. hoping to get back their possessions, which they say were seized by military police during a demonstration led by independent radio station owner Mam Sonando on January 27. … Drivers say City Hall told them on January 28 to go to police headquarters with proof of ownership to collect their vehicles. But when they arrived, police said they needed written permission from City Hall.
