Prime Minister Hun Sen has founded the second Buddhist university to be established  in Cambodia since 1954, according to an August 23 sub-decree obtained by the Post yesterday. The Buddhist university, in Kampong Cham city’s Boeungkok sangkat, has been a Buddhist school for the past three years, but will now be known as Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen Buddhist University.  The first Buddhist university in Cambodia, Preah Sihanouk Raja Buddhist University, was founded on July 1, 1954, under the royal patronage of King-father Norodom Sihanouk.
