CNRP’s signs removed in Oddar Meanchey

Police from Samraong town in Oddar Meanchey province are investigating the removal of roadside signs promoting the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party by two village chiefs who belong to the ruling Cambodian People’s Party.

CNRP commune council member Mok Vannvuthy said the seven people who lodged the complaint on June 1 had given statements to police, alleging the two village chiefs took down three of the signs on May 29.

“We demand they pay compensation for damaging the logos, re-install them and face punishment for breaking the law,” Vannvuthy said.

Reached yesterday, Samraong town police chief Sun San said he had tasked his deputy to resolve the case.

“I heard they have questioned the complainants about what time and how the logos were removed,” San said.
