Ruling party ignoring the more pressing issues

Dear Editor,

In recent months the Cambodian People's Party has unfairly cracked down on human rights groups, opposition parties and Khmer newspaper editors.

For example, Mu Sochua, a member of the National Assembly, was openly trapped by the CPP. Between the Cambodian Constitution and Hun Sen's orders, which has proved more powerful?

To crack down on elected parliamentarians is to threaten and intimidate thousands of people in Cambodia.

When the EU, the US, the UN, donor countries and independent critics criticise the government, Hun Sen and his group always say that their critics do not understand the law.

Hun Sen has said he could completely destroy the opposition party in two hours.

But has his government arrested and imprisoned any of the criminals who killed and shot the journalists, opposition activists, singers and actresses up until now? He needs only two hours to destroy the opposition party. How long will he need to reduce corruption?

Hun Sen's speeches will not be able to persuade me to believe in him.
