Children of Cambodia, Thailand elite to wed

A son of a member of the National Assembly is expected to marry the daughter of former Thai Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat.

Sieng Nam, a Cambodian People’s Party member in Siem Reap province, told the Post yesterday that his son, 32-year-old Nam Lynal, has known Somchai’s daughter for two years and both of them have been in contact with each other almost every day.

The Nation newspaper in Thailand reported on July 29 that former premier Somchai Wongsawat’s family plans to hold an extravagant wedding party for daughter Chayapa, who will tie the knot with the son of Nam, a close friend of Prime Minister Hun Sen.

The Nation also wrote that Chayapa’s mother, Yaowapa, is a younger sister of fugitive ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who may also attend the wedding ceremony.

A date has not been set.
