Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday distributed a suite of roles held by his late deputy Sok An among other ministers, reversing an earlier announcement by his spokesman that all the responsibilities would go to Deputy Prime Minister Bin Chhin. Hun Sen chided his spokesman Phay Siphan, and journalists, for making assumptions that the diverse portfolio held by his late right-hand man would go to Chhin. “You should not want to be famous and do not act like you know everything,” Hun Sen said, referring to both spokespeople and journalists.

The draft has already been denounced by unions and labour rights groups alike.
