Letter: Unbalanced view

I  am writing in response to your article, dated April 30, 1999, entitled "Inside

Funcinpec Cracks Apparent". It is apparent to me that by publishing this kind

of article, you are sensationalizing media event that does nothing to harmonize peace

to the co-existing government of Cambodia in time of endeavor. This is an irresponsible

media. Cambodia and her people do not need sensational news to digest at this moment

of peace.

As a most respected paper, you have presented an unbalanced point of view that is

critical to the development of Cambodia and its government. One party, in this case

FUNCINPEC, has been dramatized to be the fall-guy of all parties. To

me, you are creating an antagonistic character within the party apparatus so that

there is enough fuel to burn for the benefit of a few, the FUNCINPEC minority. Which

I find it is absolutely appalling, given that any political party in politics so

it seems, contains this kind of a group.

I have certainly agreed with, Prince Sisowath Sirirath, on a few points he has made

also in response to your same article. First, it is on the question of peace and

on the question of government under going changes in streamlining government ministries'

budgets, especially, in the military and in the national police, which is a very

critical and sensitive issue not just for FUNCINPEC, but for CPP as well. Second,

it is on the question of building a more civilized nation as Cambodia is now part

of the ASEAN family. Finally, it is on the question of learning from past mistakes

and mistrusts that both FUNCINPEC and CPP parties have had for many years on road

to co-exist for the sake of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

On a final note, I would like to thank you, however, and your staff for being part

of the reconstruction of Cambodia and for having your news available on web site

for people like myself to also become part of this process.

Peace and Prosperity to the Kingdom of Cambodia.
