Rainsy readies more border documents

Opposition party leader Sam Rainsy has vowed to release additional documents relating to what he claims is Vietnamese encroachment into Cambodian territory, two days after Phnom Penh Municipal Court said it would pursue new criminal charges against the Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) president. Speaking on Sunday to more than 300 supporters by phone from Paris, where he is living to avoid prosecution over an earlier border incident, Sam Rainsy said that the fresh evidence of Vietnamese incursions into Cambodia has been drafted by experts in France. “This month, I will release the information, documents and knowledge of the French experts who ... have kept maps from almost 100 years ago, as well as recent information collected by modern technology, such as satellites,” he said. Var Kimhong, Cambodia’s chief border negotiator, dismissed Sam Rainsy’s announcement, saying that if he has new evidence, “he should take those documents to give the court to examine”. MEAS SOKCHEA
