Taiwan rejects claim

A Taiwanese government representative yesterday rejected a bizarre allegation made on Tuesday connecting Taipei with an alleged plot to overthrow the Cambodian government. At trial, the leader of the “Sovannaphumi Army” claimed he had been offered US$20 million – through a middleman – by the Taiwanese government to start an anti-government group. The money, he said, would have been transferred via the Taiwanese embassy in Thailand. “Our office can clearly answer that, [our] government has never interfered with, or got involved in, the internal affairs of other countries,” said Sunisa Teptarakunkarn at the information division of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Thailand yesterday.
