Royalist party's fight taken to the court

The ousted secretary general of the Norodom Ranariddh Party (NRP) made good on his promise to file a complaint in court after he and other high-ranking members were unceremoniously booted out from the party late last week.

Former secretary general Sao Rany and five other members of the party were stripped of their titles after they publicly urged their leader, former prime minister Norodom Ranariddh, to quit politics so NRP can merge with the Funcinpec party.

“Based on the regulation of the party before ousting me, the party must summon [me or members] for questioning and a warning first. But the party had not summoned me for questioning,” Sao Rany said after leaving Phnom Penh Municipal court.

He also accused the NRP of “faking” documents used in the ouster, though a party spokesman confirmed their authenticity to the Post.

Rany was ousted on Friday along with deputies Pheng Heng, Khim Sela, Thav Kimlong, Long Lim and permanent committee member Yuos Saly.
