Rainsy only quoting others

Phnom Penh

Dear Editor,

Sam Rainsy could lose his salary over politicised charges for citing the Global Witness report in his speeches. But Global Witness's report is thoroughly well-documented - much to the dismay of a not-so-eloquent prime minister who resorts to personal insults than intelligent rebuttals.

How can Rainsy face such charges when he cites documentation far better than the horrifically researched reports produced by the government?

In my work as a reporter, I have never come upon a government-produced document that is compelling and rigorous in its methodologies,

aside from those carried out in tandem with multilateral organisations.

Global Witness has effectively filled a knowledge gap that farcical authorities leave out; I certainly hope more of Cambodia's leaders cite the report in the future.
