Ranariddh answers to court over ’06 divorce

Prince Norodom Ranariddh stands outside court Tuesday.

FORMER First Prime Minister Norodom Ranariddh appeared in Phnom Penh Municipal Court Tuesday in response to a summons relating to a divorce complaint filed in 2006 by his ex-wife, Princess Mary Ranariddh.

Liv Sovanna, Norodom Ranariddh’s lawyer, said his client agreed to appear in the spirit of reconciliation, but that he did not want to get back together with his ex-wife.

“Ranariddh said he wants to remain separated forever because they do not have sentimental feelings for each other,” Liv Sovanna said.

Norodom Ranariddh ended his marriage with Mary Ranariddh in 2006 after he fell in love with Ouk Phalla, with whom he now has a son.

A security official at the court who would give his name only as Chantha said he saw Norodom Ranariddh walk through the front entrance of the court at about 10:30am.
