Mr. Mao Sokny, Expert of APSARA, said that the wall of Banteay Kdei temple at the northwest corner was started to restore from January 2017 and is scheduled to complete in June 2017, after excavation we found the footing under the decay, which cannot bear the weight from the stone. Also, the wall tilted to the north side, which could cause to collapsed eventually and endanger to the tourists. That's why we decided to fix immediately.

The illegal construction, which was built during commune election campaign along the road from Siem Reap International Airport to Angkor Wat in Veal Village, Kork Chak district, belonging to Mrs. Oeum Sreypich, was reshuffled by the Joint Committee on August 15th, 2017 after the owner broke the promise to demolish it by herself for several times.
