Elected opposition lawmakers will today call on Interior Minister Sar Kheng to lift the ban on gatherings at Freedom Park and release the results of a government investigation into deadly violence at a garment protest in early January.
Mu Sochua, who in April started a campaign to “free Freedom Park”, said she and other lawmakers-elect will send demands to Kheng today.
“We will send him a letter saying we want the ban to be lifted without further delay . . . and for the public to be told [the results] of the investigation” into January’s violence, she said.
Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak could not be reached yesterday.
Public gatherings have been banned in Freedom Park since early January, and ahead of Labour Day demonstrations on May 1, barbed wire was erected around the area.
On Tuesday, Sochua will be joined at the park by “at least 15” Cambodia National Rescue Party lawmakers-elect in her latest bid to bring down the barricades.
