Vietnamese Man Arrested in Ho Chi Minh for Torturing Cambodian Child 

VOA Khmer | 10 December 2016

Under Cambodian law, Nguyen Thanh Dung could be charged with aggravated torture and acts of cruelty, which carries a sentence of 10 to 20 years imprisonment.

PHNOM PENH — 

A Vietnamese man accused of torturing a toddler in Mondulkiri province was arrested in Ho Chi Minh city late Wednesday after fleeing to his home country, according to police.

The arrest of Nguyen Thanh Dung, 25, came after a graphic video circulated on Facebook allegedly showing him torturing the two-year-old child, sparking outrage across Cambodia.

Cambodia's rare, honorable, dignified STATESMAN




Sam Rainsy is Cambodia's rare, honorable, dignified STATESMAN through and through in a swamp of crocodiles and snakes with unbridled ambition and greed! 

- Theary, 8 Dec. 2016

Sam Rainsy's Unique Role

Unfortunately, in Cambodia at this moment in time, there's no other No. 1 man besides Sam Rainsy. Many, many, many courageous leaders I like and respect, but no other man comes remotely close to replacing Sam Rainsy as the chief of the democracy movement.

Hence, we need him alive; we need him to have the mobility and agility to do the work needed during this challenging time, be it overseas or inside the country. The strong and growing support of the international community, for example, did not come by chance but to a large degree due to his effective lobbying.

Courage is one important characteristic, which Sam Rainsy shares with countless Cambodians.

It would be laughable and easily dismissed as rubbish some of the comments calling him a "coward" if they didn't come from voices I normally thought normal. One only needs to review his political activities in darker periods to know how indeed laughable and rubbish these sentiments are.

Courage, yes! But this is the not the distinguishing trait. What makes Sam Rainsy stand out is his unique, rare combination of top leadership skills and qualifications, recognized not only within the limited Cambodian society but internationally.'

Let's keep perspective amid the seemingly overwhelming challenge before us.

Prime Minister’s formula put to test

Phnom Penh Post | 9 Dec. 2016

For the many who have pinned their hopes on Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha’s Cambodia National Rescue Party, it would be a crushing blow for the delicate alliance to have come so far only to split now. 

[Knowing this then and now, the then-and-now leaders of the Human Rights Party have done everything to hold Sam Rainsy hostage to their endless demands for power and positions -- from the juvenile to the ridiculous to the Machiavellian play for power to nepotism to dangerous obstruction -- knowing Sam Rainsy would acquiesce for the sake of party unity.  A cursory review of the past few years without even deep analysis tells the story.  The Cambodian people get it.]

Philippine President Duterte to visit Singapore, Cambodia

Channel News Asia | 9 December 2016

MANILA: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte will travel to Singapore and Cambodia later this month, as part of his introductory visits to ASEAN countries.
Duterte will visit Cambodia on Dec 13 and 14 and then head to Singapore on Dec 15 and 16, said Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman Charles Jose on Friday (Dec 9) in a news conference at Malacanang Palace.

In Cambodia, Duterte will have a royal audience with King Norodom Sihamoni, followed by a state banquet. He will also have a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen. 

The South China Sea issue could be raised in Duterte's bilateral talks with Hun Sen, said Jose. 

The spokesman said that Duterte would reiterate the Philippines' "firm commitment to the peaceful settlement of the dispute and one that is also in accordance with the rule of law".

Cambodia and the Philippines may also sign a memorandum of agreement on sports cooperation, he added. Duterte will also meet more than 5,000 Filipinos living in Cambodia before heading to Singapore.

Tainted homemade rice wine kills 15 at funerals in Cambodia

Methanol, the simplest form of alcohol, is closely related to ethanol, the type of alcohol normally found in spirits, beer and wine. Home distillation can concentrate the level of methanol, which is highly toxic.

At least 18 people died in Cambodia's northeastern Kratie province last year after drinking methanol-tainted rice wine.

Tainted homemade rice wine kills 15 at funerals in Cambodia

Sydney Morning Herald | 10 December 2016

Phnom Penh: Fifteen people have died and at least 78 have been hospitalised in recent weeks after drinking toxic rice wine at a series of funerals in Cambodia in the past five weeks, officials said on Friday.

Rice wine sales were banned in Kompong Chhnang province, about 90km from the capital, Phnom Penh, after villagers became sick from drinking methanol-tainted wine, said Sorin Tiravuthy, director of the provincial hospital.

[Vietnamization:border ] Cambodia's Exiled Opposition Leader on Trial Again

Sam Rainsy is the most prominent target of these prosecutions, and has been in exile since November last year to avoid a jail term on a conviction that he had thought was covered by a royal pardon. There are several other cases pending against him. The government last month banned his re-entry from abroad, making it more difficult for him to fight the charges even if he chooses to return.

Cambodia's Exiled Opposition Leader on Trial Again

 AP / ABC News | 9 December 2016

Exiled Cambodian opposition leader Sam Rainsy was tried in absentia Friday for allegedly conspiring to incite chaos in the country through false documents posted on his Facebook page, a crime punishable by up to 17 years in prison.

Two other opposition members who maintained Sam Rainsy's Facebook page also were tried on the same charges - conspiracy to falsify public documents, inciting chaos and using fake documents. The two fled Cambodia in August 2015 to avoid arrest. Sam Rainsy, president of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, lives in exile in France. 

After a brief hearing that included statements by the prosecutor and the defense attorney, the Phnom Penh Municipal Court adjourned the trial and set the verdict for Dec. 22.

Sam Rainsy's troubles stem from a post by a member of his party, Sen. Hong Sok Hour, in August 2015 criticizing a 1979 Cambodia-Vietnam border treaty, which implied that Prime Minister Hun Sen's government was Vietnam's puppet. Hong Sok Hour posted on Sam Rainsy's page, and was subsequently arrested and tried.

Cambodia to remain among Least Developed Countrys, for now


Cambodia to remain among Least Developed Countrys, for now

Phnom Penh Post | 9 Dec. 2016

Cambodia is not expected to graduate from its Least Developed Country (LDC) status until after 2025, though it has made progress in furthering its development, a new report by a UN agency said.

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) projected in its latest review of the world’s poorest nations, which it undertakes every three years, that the number of LDCs will fall from 48 to 32 by 2025. By that date, Cambodia will be the only Asian country to still hold the classification, it said.

International pressure ‘useless’, says premier

 Phnom Penh Post | 9 Dec. 2016

Prime Minister Hun Sen said yesterday there were lessons to be learned from last Friday’s royal pardon for deputy opposition leader Kem Sokha, explaining that he had only made the decision to offer the olive branch after his critics fell silent.

Speaking at the Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone, the premier said his critics should stay quiet in the future when there are problems in Cambodia if they want to see them resolved.

“This is a message to say that Cambodia knows how to solve its problems, so do not put on any pressure. Hun Sen has different behaviour to others – if you put on pressure, I sleep and calmly ignore it. You can’t put pressure on this person,” Hun Sen said.

“Do not use these words ‘international pressure’,” he reiterated, before appearing to say that the recent silence from the world and opposition led to Sokha’s pardon. “When I was threatened, it was useless,” he said.

Cambodian deputy opposition leader reconciles with premier

Sam Rainsy, a more dynamic and popular politician than Kem Sokha, faces a two-year prison term along with new charges and was recently barred from re-entering Cambodia. He and Kem Sokha are rivals as well as allies, and Hun Sen has a history of using a carrot-and-stick approach to divide his opponents.

"Position is not important. What is important is one's integrity and dignity," he said. "I gladly accept everything if I can help rescue our country and make it prosperous."
Recounting his persecution by the government — from his expulsion from parliament to the ban on his return — he said, "But I remain true to myself and will remain faithful to my motherland until the end of my life."


Cambodian deputy opposition leader reconciles with premier

Associated Press / Yahoo News | 7 December 2016

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia's deputy opposition leader, recently pardoned from going to jail for ignoring a court summons, returned to parliament Wednesday saying he and Prime Minister Hun Sen have reached a deal to help reconcile their rival parties for the sake of the country.

Last month, Kem Sokha and fellow lawmakers of the Cambodia National Rescue Party ended a six-month boycott of parliament protesting what they said was politically motivated harassment after several were stripped of parliamentary immunity and sued by Hun Sen's government. Critics accuse Hun Sen of manipulating the courts to weaken the opposition's chances in next year's local polls and the 2018 general election.

Opposition members said they returned to parliament to seek a political truce and scrutinize the national budget.

Kem Sokha, who had taken refuge at party headquarters for months to avoid arrest, was granted a royal pardon last Friday at Hun Sen's request. He had failed to answer a summons in a case involving his alleged mistress that he had described as politically motivated.

He said at Wednesday's National Assembly session that he and Hun Sen agreed to resolve their differences through talk, in what could be taken as a breakthrough in easing tensions. But it also could drive a wedge between opposition leaders.

While Kem Sokha no longer has a jail term hanging over him, Cambodia National Rescue Party leader Sam Rainsy remains in political limbo. He has been in exile since November last year after an old conviction for defamation was restored and his parliamentary immunity was stripped by the government's legislative majority.

Toxic rice wine kills 10, hospitalises 50 in Cambodia

Channel News Asia | 8 Dec. 2016

PHNOM PENH: Home-brewed toxic rice wine is believed to have killed 10 people and hospitalised 50 others from a Cambodian village in recent weeks, officials said Thursday (Dec 8).

Residents started falling ill after drinking the traditional spirit at a series of funerals in a village in central Kampong Chhnang province, according to the director of the local hospital.

"From (late) November until now, 10 people have died and around 50 have come here to get treatment," said Sorin Ravuthy.

The ceremonial drink is a staple at Cambodian festivals, funerals and weddings. But it can be deadly if brewed improperly with methanol.

Police have arrested Nguyen Thanh Dung, a Vietnamese suspect who allegedly took part in the torture and rape of a two-year-old boy in Cambodia, Ho Sy Tien, director of the Criminal Police Department under Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security, said late Wednesday.

On 8 December 2016 the Kangaroo Court in Phnom Penh will prosecute two young colleagues of mine: Ueng Chong Leang, 21, and Sombath Satya, 25, and myself for an alleged Facebook crime. On 7 November 2016, opposition Senator Hong Sok Hour was sentenced to seven years in prison by the same Court for posting on my Facebook page on 11 August 2015 a border-related document that had one word mistranslated from Khmer to English and from English back to Khmer, with the verb "redefine" becoming "dissolve". Only because of this mistranslated word, Hong Sok Hour was accused of "forging a public document," "making use of a forged public document" and "inciting the public so as to create troubles and threaten public order." Now, my two young colleagues -- who are members of my Facebook team -- and myself are accused of being "accomplices" of Senator Hong Sok Hour.

The Phnom Penh Kangaroo Court doesn't want to know and to take into account the fact that the very document posted by Hong Sok Hour on 11 August 2015 with its mistranslated word had circulated on the Internet since March 2013 and the Cambodian authorities had not said anything about it and the US-based website that had posted it first.  


The Kangaroo Court should also know that any Facebook pages targeting a vast audience generally have many administrators and editors who have the right to post news and views like what Hong Sok Hour did on my page. When Hong Sok Hour's incriminated document was posted -- and deleted a few hours later -- on 11 August 2015, I was traveling in the USA and came back to Cambodia only five days later without having been involved in the incident.
