Cambodian evictees (women & children) scale the wall of Gov’t detention centre:
Liam Cochrane – ABC Radio Australia – Friday, 20 January 2012
An opposition MP in Cambodia has called on the Australian Government to pay more attention to human rights issues, after 22 women and children broke out of a detention centre in dramatic scenes on Wednesday.
Mu Sochua has also called on the Cambodian Red Cross to offer health and housing assistance to the women and children. The group are from Borei Keila, and were made homeless by a land dispute in Phnom Penh, where a company reneged on an agreement to build apartments for those displaced by a big development project. They were detained last week while protesting against their eviction and sent to the Prey Speu social affairs centre.
