SRP response

I vehemently deny the allegation that the Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) supporters were

behind the so-called protest against Christians in Prey Veng province as reported

by the Phnom Penh Post's "Christian groups described as 'second Pol Pot'"

article published on November 8, 2002. A section of the article, alleging SRP's involvement,

was based on a miscommunication between Mr. Eng Muny and a Post journalist. Per my

discussion with Mr. Eng, whom the Post quoted in the article, Mr. Eng insisted that

he did/does not know who were behind the protest but was reading a complaint letter

written by Mr. Pich Sarou, who alleged that the local SRP supporters were behind

the "protest". The SRP is in the process of filing a lawsuit against Mr.

Pich Sarou for orchestrating this charade against the SRP.

The SRP, the only true democratic force and the main opposition, is fighting to restore

human dignity and to bring social justice to the Cambodian people. In this process,

the party promotes alienable rights such as the rights of religious freedom, of expression,

and of association. The party wants to promote tolerance and not extremism.
