One

reader reports that on Monday, June 25 in the evening, an ECCC vehicle with license

plate number ONU 2761 was seen driving down the wrong side of Monivong Blvd, went

through two stop signs and a red light without stopping, then cut off two cars and

almost caused a collision. The reader requests that KRT vehicle drivers please do

not drive with impunity.

**A Western guerilla pamphleteer was sighted along the river front handing out flyers

in English headlined as follows: "The Khmer Rouge have to account for their

crimes and so does the U.S. 1969-1973 U.S. Genocide in Cambodia".

The flyer notes US bombing of Cambodia and says "...it is imperative that the

US government be brought to justice for its own mass killings on Cambodian soil."

One Australian barrister with extensive experience in tracking revolutionaries described

the man handing out the flyers as a "well groomed [US] East Coast kind of guy

with short hair and a clean, button-down shirt, probably in his late 20s, early 30s."

"He was deliberate and purposeful," said the barrister. "Not the type

inflamed with passion. He gave me the flyer, I glanced at it and then when I looked

up he was gone."
