Correction and apology

In the Phnom Penh Post, Volume 5 Number 15, dated July 16 - August 8, 1996, a speech

made by His Excellency Samdech Hun Sen, Second Prime Minister was reprinted in an

unofficial English language translation on pages 4, 5 and 6 of the issue in question.

The Phnom Penh Post mistakenly printed (on Page 5, column 1, paragraph 3) that H.E.

Samdech Hun Sen said: "The decision to arrest Norodom Sihanouk was not a minor

matter."

It should have read Norodom Sirivudh.

The misquote was entirely unintentional and a result of human error which we regret

greatly.
