Sam Rainsy appeal: Acting head of SRP seeks Senate help

Sam Rainsy appeal
KONG Korm, acting president of the opposition Sam Rainsy Party, will today send a letter to Senate President Chea Sim requesting him to encourage the government to allow party leader Sam Rainsy to return to Cambodia.

Sam Rainsy, who is in self-imposed exile overseas, was sentenced to two years in jail after an incident in October last year in which he helped villagers uproot wooden demarcation poles near the Vietnamese border.

Kong Korm said yesterday that the Senate had a “duty” to try to arrange for a compromise that would enable Sam Rainsy to return. “I have optimism that it’s very reasonable that the Senate president can ask the government authorities and the National Assembly to withdraw the complaint,” he said.
