Secretary-General to the Council of Ministers, Nady Tan, announced on Jan 29
that he was retiring from public life in April. Tan based his decision on personal
dissatisfaction with life as a Cambodian civil servant. Tan was one of several Funcinpec
members who broke ranks with Prince Norodom Ranariddh by opting to cooperate with
the CPP following the July 1997 coup.
