A bald-faced lie

Dear Editor,

For the record I would like to state that Raoul Jennar's suggestion that the United

States Government tried to use the Information/Education Division of UNTAC to "oust"

Hun Sen is totally false. His claim that "many times I heard people in the information

component of UNTAC saying that they were here to expel CPP from power" can be

nothing but a bald-faced lie, which I challenge him to substantiate by telling who

said this, when, where and with whom present.
- Steven Heder, formerly Deputy Director, UNTAC Information/Education Division.
