On 3rd January 2012, roughly between the hours of 6am until 11am, armed forces consisting of policemen, military police and the security forces of the Phanimex company, in addition to local authorities and hired workers, raided and destroyed people’s homes, and arrested eleven people at Borei Keila in Phnom Penh, all in the name of development. The arrested people included one underage boy and one woman. The forces defending the company’s development were supported by four fire trucks and two bull dozers, and were equipped with shields, electric batons, fire arms and tear gas; the residents of Borei Keila stood little chance of defending their homes and livelihoods. Both sides threw stones and were injured, including three officers and two hired workers. All the arrested residents were subjected to beatings but the total number of residents injured is unknown.
