In Brief: PM threatens loss of immunity for MP


strip Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Mu Sochua of her parliamentary immunity

would be "easier than peeling a banana", Prime Minister Hun Sen said

Wednesday. The comments, made during a speech at the National Institute

of Education, relate to a lawsuit brought by Mu Sochua in relation to

what she claims were defamatory remarks made by Hun Sen during a speech

in Kampot on April 4. Hun Sen said he would also be prepared to have

his own immunity suspended, but said he "did not believe" the

majority-CPP parliament would vote to remove his protection.
