SRP seeks Sihanouk’s aid

SAM Rainsy Party officials say they will seek the help of King Father Norodom Sihanouk on the issue of border incursions by the Vietnamese, a party official said Wednesday, as the former monarch returned from Beijing.

“He returned to Cambodia while the ruling [Cambodian People’s Party] threatens the people who struggled to protect the border land,” SRP spokesman Yim Sovann said. “We will ask him to find justice for us because he understands about the border work.”

Sihanouk, who receives medical treatment in China, travelled home with his wife, Queen Mother Monineath Sihanouk, and son, King Norodom Sihamoni.

The royal family was met at Phnom Penh International Airport by a delegation of leaders, including Prime Minister Hun Sen, National Assembly President Heng Samrin and Senate President Chea Sim, before travelling back to the Royal Palace.

“The King Father and his wife returned to Cambodia to join this happy New Year with his people,” said Um Daravuth, the King’s Cabinet officer.

During his time abroad, Sihamoni received a routine health check in Beijing, before travelling on to Prague and France.
