Scandal of six

Dear Sir,

T he recent adoption of immigration law bill was made unanimously. Among the quorum of ninety-eight members on the fifth day of debate, there were six members who did not vote for the bill to come into effect. It's strange and unbelievable to hear that!

Although the Immigration Law will be the guard to prevent all foreigners from coming into Cambodia illegally, it is also a big hammer to knock on the Vietnamese illegal immigrants, who have been in this country since before 1993 government when the government was known as corrupt.

People are looking forward to seeing this law enforced. They hope the Royal Government will bravely evict all these Yuans, who have come to develop nothing in this country but are the robbers, prostitutes, illegal fishermen...

They are waiting for the time when there will be no illegal Vietnamese immigrants in this country.

The above statements show that Cambodians do not want the Yuan citizens in their country. Why did the six members of parliament reject this bill.

Oh! God, who do these six guys represent? Do they represent Vietnamese?

- Men Kim Seng, Phnom Penh.
