Hundreds of leaflets criticising the ruling Cambodian People’s Party were dropped across Phnom Penh last Friday. The leaflets called on all Khmer people to liberate Cambodia from its leaders – including prime minister Hun Sen, National Assembly president Heng Samrin and senate president Chea Sim. It also accused them of confiscating people’s land by telling them it would be used for development. National Police spokesman Kirt Chantharith said on Monday it was not the first time the leaflet had been scattered. CPP lawmaker Cheam Yeap defended the leaders and said the leaflet’s creators had “blind eyes”.
