On 19 May, over 100 community members and land rights activists gathered in front of the Ministry of Interior to demand the release of three Coalition of Cambodian Farmer Community (CCFC) staffers who were arrested on 18 May.

Community members from Koh Kong, Preah Sihanouk, Svay Rieng, Kampong Speu, and Kandal provinces gathered in front of the Ministry of Interior to urge authorities to release Theng Savoeun, CCFC president; Nhel Pheap, a senior officer at the NGO; and Thann Hach, a project officer. Reasons for their arrests currently remain unclear and the three remain in detention in Ratanakiri province.
