SRP member may regain immunity

Opposition lawmaker Ho Vann will regain his parliamentary immunity soon after the National Assembly reconvenes on April 1, Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) lawmaker Cheam Yeap said on Tuesday. He said that the Phnom Penh Municipal Court and Justice Minister Ang Vong Vathana sent the assembly a letter clarifying a Municipal Court ruling that lifted defamation charges brought against Ho Vann by 22 senior military officials. The assembly’s permanent committee will soon meet to prepare the legal documents for reinstating Ho Vann’s immunity, which will be submitted to National Assembly President Heng Samrin for official announcement to the assembly, Cheam Yeap said.
