Sihanoukville – A family dispute over the ownership of a highly valuable plot of land in Sihanoukville has pitched an 84-year-old matriarch against her 61-year-old daughter, creating a family drama that has captured the attention of many Cambodian social media users.
The family members have sued each other and on March 8 the Sihanoukville Provincial Court ordered a family shop on the land closed down pending a final decision in the case.
In emotional scenes that were shared on Facebook, the octogenarian named Han Kak is seen crying in the shop and holding a portrait of Prime Minister Hun Sen, pleading with him to intervene in the court case to stop her daughter Deng Ang.
