Mastering the art

Michael Vickery (PPP, April27, 2001) does a great disservice to a better understanding

of Cambodia's contemporary history by his constant and continuous attacks against

anyone who happens to have different views about today's Cambodia.

Vickery excels in accusing others of committing character assassination, an art he

has mastered over the years in the best Stalinist mould.

The attack on Peter Schier is spurious as well as ignorant. Peter was never a "propagandist

for FUNCINPEC". In fact, he was accused, mistakenly, by senior FUNCINPEC officials

of being a "CPP supporter". He was neither.

During his five years in Cambodia, Peter Schier made substantial contributions to

the reconstruction of Cambodia through his activities and advocacy in fields encompassing

civil society, human rights, government transparency and accountability, environment,

democracy development and the renewal of the Buddhist faith.

What has Michael Vickery done for the reconstruction of Cambodia? Apart fromconstantly

using the columns of the Phnom Penh Post (the same newspaper he despises!) to attack

those who do not support the corruption, the violations of human rights and the erosion

of democratic values so common in today's Cambodia.
