Renew probe

Dear Sir,

T his letter is in reference to the response of Mr Leng Sochea, press Director of the Ministry of Information, regarding an article titled, "Political Killing raises fear", written by Ms Anugraha Palan, in the May 20-June 2, 1994 issue .

Investigations conducted by the Ministries of Justice and Interior, and confirmed by Licadho, have demonstrated that the two policemen killed on April 19th, the night of Ang Kuoy's death, were victims of an unrelated Khmer Rouge attack.

However, government reports, obtained by Licadho, shed no light whatsoever in the killing of Ang Kouy. As was well documented by Untac, Ang Kuoy had been receiving death threats from CPP officials in Kampot for more than one year prior to his death. The government reports does not address the possibility that Ang Kuoy was the target of a politically motivated attack by local government officials.

Therefore, we urge the government to renew it's investigation on the Ang Kuoy murder.

- Licadho, a Khmer-run human rights NGO.
