Prince Norodom's party feud back in court

Sao Rany, the secretary-general of the Norodom Ranariddh Party, appeared in court yesterday in connection with a complaint he filed last month accusing the party leader of faking documents to terminate him from the party.

It’s one of two cases Rany has going against former Prime Minister Ranariddh.

The first was a challenge to Ranariddh’s decision to kick him out of the party, and yesterday’s appearance concerned the authenticity of the documents used to enforce that order.

Rany claims that Ranariddh did not issue the document himself. Therefore, so his argument goes, the act constitutes forgery.

“The court asked me whether or not I changed my [case]. I told the court that what I have told police is still the same,” he said. “This is a criminal case. If police and the court find out [the fakers of document would be in jail].”

NRP cabinet chief Noranarith Anandayath and spokesman Pen Sangha who were accused of being involved in the forgery, said that they do not fear Rany’s complaint.

“I will not flee. I’ve got nothing wrong on my conscience. What we have done is just enforce the decision of the party president,” Anandayath said.
