In Brief: Funcinpec asks ctn for a retraction

After cancelling

plans to protest in front of the Cambodian Television Network, the

royalist Funcinpec party has written a letter to TV news anchor Soy

Sopheap, urging him to retract comments he made about their party. The

letter stated that Soy Sopheap's comments on CTN on March 12 insulted

Funcinpec leaders' honour and acted contrary to election laws. Soy

Sopheap told the Post Monday he did not know what point the royalist

party wanted to correct, but he confirmed that he had read the letter

out on TV already.
