Psy-Wars: Govt coaxes rebels...

The following is the content of a leaflet dropped from RCAF helicopters over

Khner Rouge-controlled Phum Kveau village in Siem Reap, urging rebels to defect.

Photographs of detectors and their families - including one the First and Second

Prime Ministers in army uniforms posing with two former KR appointed as RCAF

Generals - were also dropped.

THE APPEAL

THE dry season has come. This is a good occasion

which creates a favorable condition for the people and army officers,

non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the Democratic Kampuchea faction who

are being cheated by a small group of obstinate leaders who are still forcing

you to die and to be injured instead of them.

In order to ensure the security of yourselves and your families, please

hurriedly abandon the stubborn leaders of the Democratic Kampuchea faction by

bringing your weapons and ammunition back to live in the national community

under the cool shade of Preah Bat Samdech Preah Norodom Sihanouk Varman, the

highly revered King of us.

Recently, Mr. Lo Sok [former deputy chief of KR Div 305] and his family as

well as your combatant friends have returned to live with the Royal

Government.

The General Staff of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces would

like to guarantee that you all will be warmly welcomed by all levels of RCAF and

the people.

If you want to return to your home villages or join the RCAF,

we will have an appropriate policy for you.

As for your belongings, they

will be recognized as your own property.

For the people who are living in

the areas temporarily controlled by the Khmer Rouge have to seek every means to

evacuate yourselves from the insecure areas punctually, and come back to help

rebuild and develop our nation.

Please bring with you this leaflet to

give to local authorities and all levels of commanders in any units of RCAF who

will receive you officially.

Phnom Pen, December 3, 1994.

On behalf of

Chief of the General Staff.

First Deputy Chief, Gen, Nhek Bun Chhay
