The Municipality Announced that Following Samdech Dekchor’s Recommendation, There Are No Development Plans for Any Markets – Wednesday, 22.7.2009

The Mirror, Vol. 13, No. 622

“Because of the wise recommendation of the Prime Minister of The Kingdom of Cambodia, Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor Hun Sen, which was clearly announced, there are no permissions for any markets in Phnom Penh to be re-developed, after there had been protests by vendors who halted their operations at their stalls when they knew that somebody would invest in their market to replace it by a new one. The major reason why vendors absolutely rejected the plan is because they had seen many previous negative models, where, at the end, vendors were required to buy stalls from the new market owners. But then another new surprising case happened at the Kandal Market, when vendors heard that there were plans to develop their market into a supermarket.

“Responding to the protest by Kandal Market vendors in front of the Municipality on 20 July 2009, the Phnom Penh Municipality issued a notification on 21 July 2009 to inform the public that there are no permits for any development plans for any markets. Koh Santepheap would like to publicize the notification as follow:

Phnom Penh, 21 July 2009


Recently the Phnom Penh Municipality noticed that there was various information going around about attempts to develop this or that market, and especially about a plan to develop the Kandal Market in Phsar Kandal I, Daun Penh, Phnom Penh. The Phnom Penh Municipality would like to confirm that in response to the vendors’ requests, the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor Hun Sen, decided officially and made it known through the Notification 811, dated 16 June 2009, to stop the re-development of all markets in Phnom Penh. This is a very wise decision of the Royal Government, overriding any other legal documents relating to this case.

Therefore all vendors are requested to continue their operations normally and calmly, and they should not believe any incitements originating from some dishonest people who try to take the opportunity to make benefits for themselves by provoking the vendors to demonstrate, wasting both their time and their benefits.

The heads of the Phnom Penh police and military police will look for those who provoke to disturb public order so that they can to be convicted according to the law.
