Collect compensation payments, displaced Vientiane residents urged

Vientiane Times, 17 Sept 2013

Officials at the Vientiane Natural Resources and Environment Department are still waiting for 20 former landowners to collect compensation owed them as part of a project to build the That Luang Marsh Specific Economic Zone in central Vientiane.

The landowners occupied more than 80 parcels of land, which they vacated to make way for the development.

“These people have the right to compensation and we are asking them to expedite claims for the money owed them,” a department official told Vientiane Times on Monday.
