Promised or received compensation

Promised compensation (e.g. for damages or resettlements)
“compensation was only paid for the loss of resin trees in Srae Chang and Krasang, but not in Pum Chas which was hit the severest. A reason why villagers from Pum Chas didn’t get compensated at all might be the village’s unregistered and therefore illegal status, making its villagers more vulnerable to eviction and less powerful during negotiation processes … In Srae Chang, affected villagers received compensations of 5,000 riel per tree, whereas in Krasang the amount varied between 5,000 and 10,000 riel … None of the consulted villagers were satisfied with the compensation. They objected the low amount per tree, as well as the fact that the company didn’t pay compensation for the loss of land” (Michel Thesis, p. 106 f.)
