SRP MP Son Chhay lost his land dispute case in Siem Reap in the Appeal Court. On 15 February, the Appeal Court issued a stay on the Siem Reap/Oddar Meanchey provincial court decision forcing Son Chhay to move out of a land property located in Siem Reap city and turn the land over to the Apsara Authority. On 27 July 2006, the Siem Reap/Oddar Meanchey court decided that Son Chhay must move out of the more than 3-hectare land located in the hotel sector and turn the land over to the Apsara Authority, but Son Chhay refused and took his case to the Appeal Court for another decision. However, the Appeal Court maintained the lower court decision.
