New York Times | 6 October 2017

HONG KONG — The Cambodian government on Friday sued to dissolve the country’s main opposition party, intensifying a crackdown that has drawn widespread condemnation from Western governments.

    That is not a crack down. There were two small opposition parties who filed law suite asking CNRP to be dissolved since CNRP has been threatening and causing so much trouble against other smaller political parties.

    I think after CNRP is dissolved, Cambodian politic will be much cleaner. No more lies and/or dirty tricks.

      Don't forget, it was CNRP who was threatening Kem Ley as the traitor and working for Mr. Hun Sen to split the opposition's vote.

      Mr. Hun Sen was welcoming Kem Ley's party as a sign of true Democracy with multi-party. Some months later, Kem Ley was dead and CNRP blamed Mr. Hun Sen for killing Kem Ley!!!
