I am completely taken aback, deeply shaken, extremely sad and full of
anguish because of the brutal murder of my dear friend Om Radsady, who was not even
able to kill a fly.
The Radsady I know did not promote or practice violence. He was a peaceful man and
a true Buddhist.
He was caring and sharing and he never enriched himself by illegal means to the detriment
He was one of the extremely rare Cambodian leaders who gave the national interest
and the political principles of democracy and the rule of law as well as the Buddhist
precepts the priority in his professional and personal life.
Radsady was an outstanding example of humility, sincerity and integrity - qualities
which most Cambodian politicians do not possess. His death is a great loss for Cambodia
although only few Cambodian leaders will understand that.
When will those who are responsible for the murder of Om Radsady and the several
hundred political killings during the past 10 years finally be brought to justice?
But who cares and who dares?
