King laments hostage deaths

To the Co-Premiers, Beloved Samdechs,

I request the Royal Government of Cambodia to do what it can to honor the mortal remains and the memory of Mr David Wilson, Mr Mark Slater and Mr Jean-Michel Braquet, who were unjustly and very cruelly assassinated by the Khmer Rouge Polpotists and who had come to visit our country because they sincerely loved and felt affectionate sympathy for the Cambodian people, and to honor equally their respective families and respective countries (Australian, Great Britain and France).

Please convey to the honorable families and to the respective governments mentioned above, good friends of Cambodia, my humble apologies for these three deaths, that in spite of my efforts and attempts to save them, I was unable to prevent it from happening, and my very sad condolences.

- King Norodom Sihanouk, Nov 3
