A man with no enemies

March 18th will mark the one month anniversary of Om Radsady's murder: the "murder

of a man with no enemies" as perfectly coined by your newspaper (Post, Feb 28,

2003).

Although we continue to grieve, and with the help of friends and supporters have

launched www.omradsady.org, we are also increasingly frustrated. The shroud of silence

that now consumes the investigation into Om Radsady's murder is deafening. It is,

to quote Churchill, a "riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma". The

sense of shock has dissipated, but dare we say it, some people are forgetting. "Life

goes on" friends tell us. But life does not go on for Om Radsady is our rejoinder.

Om Radsady's life ended on a bright sunny day, too soon, and far too senselessly.

We cannot forget.

We must press on for answers, we cannot sit quietly like potted plants.This is why

we write to you today. The line of impunity in Cambodia must be drawn at the murder

of Om Radsady.

We demand justice for the murder of a man with no enemies.
