strip Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Mu Sochua of her parliamentary immunity
would be "easier than peeling a banana", Prime Minister Hun Sen said
Wednesday. The comments, made during a speech at the National Institute
of Education, relate to a lawsuit brought by Mu Sochua in relation to
what she claims were defamatory remarks made by Hun Sen during a speech
in Kampot on April 4. Hun Sen said he would also be prepared to have
his own immunity suspended, but said he "did not believe" the
majority-CPP parliament would vote to remove his protection.
