Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has issued an order to write off all permissions for the exchange and development of forest area at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre in Bati district, Takeo province.

The order was announced via his social media network this morning, following many requests to the Royal Government for the preservation of the forests near Phnom Tamao, although the Ministry of Agriculture has explained that Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre is not affected.

“As the highest responsible person of the Royal Government, I would like to issue the following order: 1. Cancel all permissions for exchange and development. 2. The land and forests around Phnom Tamao Zoo are be protected and conserved by the Ministry of Agriculture. 3. The company that cleared the land must stop its activities and replant the trees on the cleared land,” the Premier emphasised.

At the same time, Samdech Techo Prime Minister thanked his compatriots for their constructive suggestions.
