49 - CAMBODIA. Phnom Penh. 14/05/2006: Eviction of the Bassac slum. 1600 families are being displaced to a plot of land 27Km from the center of town. The 1200 families who were owners of their shack in the slum receive a plot of land 5m x 12m. The 400 remaining families who were renting were not included in the plan. The start of the rainy season makes the situation for the renters waiting to get a plot of land on the new site very difficult. - VIJ2006011W00054-29.tif
