Your April 9 edition reported on comments that I made at a recent panel discussion

at the FCC.

I would like to clarify one point: I did not only blame the government for the high

level of corruption in Cambodia.

There is enough blame to go around: corruption may have started with the government

years ago, but it has flourished because no one else really wants to do anything

about it.

I made it clear during my remarks that the donor community, the international financial

institutions, international organizations, etc have acquiesced in the spread of corruption.

I believe that, at this point, corruption is so widespread that any solution will

have to have the active involvement of all of these sectors.

My call for leadership is not just directed at the government - it's directed at

everyone. But there can be no doubt that action is overdue.
