Letter denounced

I completely reject any association with or knowledge of the highly offensive email

sent to Mr Stephan Gnaegi, General Manager of Raffles Hotel Le Royal, published in

the Phnom Penh Post (July 2).

I could never as a human being write such a cruel message. Only a person without

morality and education would do this.

This faked email destroyed my honor and dignity. It was intended to cruelly damage

me and my family because it can prevent me finding a job. I urgently need to be reinstated

in my job in order to feed and support my family, especially my two year old daughter.

Soeun Veasoth, employee of Raffles Hotel Le Royal and a member of Raffles

Hotel Le Royal Union.

Editor's note: the article stated that Soeun Veasoth (an assistant manager at

the hotel and one of 97 staff who have been locked out), did not have a Yahoo email

account and denied sending the message.
