No suspects in leaflet case

Police have made no progress in tracking down the people who distributed controversial leaflets in Takeo province last week rejecting the January 7 holiday and expressing anti-Vietnamese sentiments. Investigators “found nothing”, national police Deputy Commissioner Sok Phal said, without elaborating further. Last Monday police in Takeo found roughly 600 of the anonymous leaflets scattered outside a high school near Takeo town. A copy of one of the leaflets obtained by the Post asserted that January 7, 1979, should be remembered as the day Cambodia became captive to the Vietnamese, employing a racist epithet to describe citizens of the neighbouring country. Prime Minister Hun Sen subsequently said that he knew the leaflets had been printed in Thailand, warning the distributors that they would be arrested.
