Ex-Funcinpec leader files over ‘conspiracy’

Former Funcinpec deputy secretary-general Suong Phally filed a complaint with the capital’s municipal court on Monday demanding one billion riel ($245,000) compensation from five party officials for conspiring to end his membership.

Speaking to The Post on Wednesday, Phally named the Funcinpec officials as You Hok Kry, Por Bun Sroeu, Nheb Bun Chin, Nuth Sokhum and Yoem Savy.

“I filed this complaint because they are working against the [party’s] standards . . . [these] people never do any work, [but when] there is a selection of 41 lawmakers, their names appeared on the list,” he claimed.

He said that the candidates for lawmaker failed to uphold the values of the party. “I am taking legal action against the five committee members that arranged it like that. People worked hard but got nothing. Yet those who never do any work benefited, he said.

Funcipec spokesman Nheb Bun Chin who is being sued by Phally, said that he didn’t understand what Phally was doing.

“I am not happy with him. He comes to disturb people. I am seeking a lawyer to work on this case. In the party, I don’t have any enemies ... and there is an accusation through an ill intentioned administrative letter.

“Who removed [him], who is ill-intentioned? Did I sign the letter? Now I cannot let [him] continue doing such things,” he said.
