Brother, adversary promoted

Kem sokhon, the younger brother of the opposition leader Kem Sokha, has been promoted to the rank of two-star general within the Ministry of Interior amid a publicity campaign against the Cambodia National Rescue Party.

According to the latest Royal Gazette, Sokhon was appointed deputy director of the Central Security Department at the Ministry of Interior on May 23.

Sokhon, who defected to Cambodian People’s Party from the opposition Human Rights Party, has spent the time since his defection using public forums to launch attacks against CNRP policy.

In one common refrain, Sokhon says: “I am his brother, but even I cannot stay with him. How about all of you, who are not his relatives, how can you stay with him?”

CNRP spokesman Yim Sovann said that he was uninterested in the promotion.      

Neither Sokhon nor Thong Lim, his superior at the Central Security Department, could be reached yesterday.
