Anti-Corruption Demonstrators Converge on Two Institutions

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the government’s Anti-Corruption Unit on Thursday, demanding investigations into a variety of land grabs, forced evictions and other crimes. Protesters said they do not trust provincial courts or officials to resolve their disputes. They also marched on the National Assembly, seeking at both sites to deliver petitions outlining their grievances. No clashes were reported, a rarity since the government declared a band on public gatherings following a violent crackdown on labor demonstrations in January. (Suy Heimkhemra, Phnom Penh)
