Radsady death deplored

Radsady death deplored

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

of society.

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?
