HRP activist nabbed over text threats

An unnamed Human Rights Party activist was arrested in Phnom Penh on Monday on suspicion of sending death threats by text message, according to the government adviser who was thought to be the target of the threat. Nheak Vannara, an adviser to the government, said police made the arrest after he reported receiving two messages in English a day earlier, warning that he would be the “90th to be killed”. He said the person who sent him the messages wrote: “I am not happy with you, I am activist of HRP”. Kirt Chantharith, National Police spokesman, said Monday that he had not yet received any information about the case.
