Stoush continues for Royalist party

Phnom Penh municipal court has summonsed Chhim Siek Leng and Sao Rany of the Norodom Ranariddh Party to appear next week in relation to their ongoing legal battle that forced Rany from his position as secretary-general.

The court previously issued a verdict suspending the NRP decision that stripped Rany and his five deputies of their positions.

Leng, who replaced Rany, filed a complaint on July 27 asking the court to overturn the verdict.

NRP president Prince Norodom Ranariddh removed Rany on July 20, alleging he secretly arranged merger talks with Funcinpec.

Pen Sangha, spokesman of the NRP, confirmed the summonses, saying “Chhim Siek Leng filed a complaint for counter-suing because the decision affects NRP rights”.
