Sihanoukville: Otres beach to be cleared

PREAH Sihanouk provincial authorities have moved closer to resolving a standoff with 70 business owners and vendors slated for eviction from a 1.5-kilometre stretch of Sihanoukville’s Otres beach by increasing the size
of a financial “gift” offered to those who choose to leave peacefully.Sok Phorn, deputy provincial cabinet chief, said yesterday that authorities had offered lump-sum payments of US$4,000 for business owners and
$1,500 for landless vendors if they were to leave, a $500 increase on an offer made earlier this week.Officials say the owners are not entitled to compensation because the land they occupy is state land.
