Pol Pot claim

In the "Christian groups described as 'second Pol Pot'" article published

by the Phnom Penh Post on November 8, I was misquoted. I was reported to have witnessed

more than 200 locals from Prey Krang and Pichirath villages, Prey Veng province,

protesting against Christians and that the protesters were supporters of the Sam

Rainsy Party.

During my phone interview with a Phnom Penh Post journalist, I read the quoted information

from a complaint letter written by Mr. Pich Sarou. According to the letter that I

read to the Post, Mr. Pich accused local supporters of the Sam Rainsy Party as the

instigators of the protest. But I do not know who was behind the protest or who the

organizers were.

If you have further questions related to this matter, I can be contacted at 012 926360.

Editor's note: Prior to the story appearing in the Post, Mr Eng Muny made

no reference to any letter. He told the journalist that he had seen the protest himself.

After publication the Post re-confirmed with Mr Eng Muny that all details in the

story were correct, except for a mistake Mr Eng Muny admitted he had made in the

number of people he personally had seen. He agreed the Post had quoted him accurately.
