Rainsy Faces Charges in Facebook Forgery Case
by Khy Sovuthy | November 21, 2015

As opposition leaders convened in Manila on Friday to formulate a response to a series of recent political blows, CNRP President Sam Rainsy was slapped with new provisional charges of being an ac­complice to forgery and incitement over a post made to his public Facebook page by someone else.

The charges follow a week in which Mr. Rainsy was effectively exiled from the country after a warrant was issued for his arrest in a seven-year-old defamation case.
He also had his parliamentary im­munity stripped from him after be­ing ousted from the National As­sembly by a CPP vote.

Mr. Rainsy was in South Korea when the warrant was announced and has remained abroad ever since, reneging on a vow to return to Cambodia and face prison.
With the new charges against him, which carry a possible penalty of 17 additional years in jail, it was less clear than ever when he might return.

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court announced the charges—being an accomplice to the crimes of forging a public document, us­ing a forged document, and inciting chaos—in a summons issued on Friday, explaining that the charges were provisional and would be confirmed or dismissed after Mr. Rainsy appeared for questioning by an investigating judge on Decem­ber 4 at 8:30 a.m.

“In the case that [Mr. Rainsy] does not go at the above time, we will issue an arrest warrant according to the law
,” the summons said.

Court officials could not be reached for comment yesterday, but CPP spokesman Sok Eysan said he was aware of the provisional charges and that they related to the case of opposition Sena­tor Hong Sok Hour, who was ar­rested and jailed in August on direct orders from Prime Minis­ter Hun Sen after posting a video showing a fake border treaty on Mr. Rain­sy’s Facebook page.

Even though His Excellency Hong Sok Hour said that he posted the document by himself, he posted it on the Facebook account of His Excellency Sam Rainsy, so he is an accomplice,” Mr. Eysan said.
“This action really disturbed so­cial security because it was completely different from the original document….
It is not a normal is­sue, but a very serious issue.”

Mr. Rainsy said yesterday that he welcomed the news of the additional charges, although he did not respond to questions about how they might affect his decision on whether and how to return to Cambodia.

“It may seem paradoxical but it’s a good news for me: the more clownesque the CPP-controlled court becomes the stronger the support I get to find justice for all the victims of the recent political repression in Cambodia
,” he said in an email.

At this point in time, I am not going to play with clowns!” he added.

Mr. Rainsy, his deputy Kem So­kha, and CNRP lawmakers Son Chhay, Yem Ponhearith and Eng Chhai Eang met in Manila on Fri­day to discuss the party’s strategy for dealing with recent events, in­cluding the legal cases against Mr. Rainsy, the ousting of Mr. Sokha from the National Assembly and the beating of two opposition lawmakers outside parliament after a pro-CPP protest earlier this month.
Mr. Rainsy confirmed the meeting, but declined to elaborate on what was discussed.

In Manila CNRP leaders are reshaping and adapting the party strategy in light of the new and evolving situation,” he said.
You understand that this cannot be made public.
You will see how things will develop.
But on the whole, we are optimistic because the other side has made so many mistakes

Mr. Eysan, the CPP spokes­man, insisted that the fledgling case against Mr. Rainsy was “not political, but criminal.”
However, Prime Minister Hun Sen cautioned Mr. Rainsy in a speech in Paris last month that he should beware of fresh legal trouble related to the Facebook case—and warned that if that happened, he would not receive a pardon.

“The page’s owner is Rainsy, so it can be involved with that guy,”
the prime minister said.
“This time, I will not pardon him be­cause I have granted him a pardon two times already ]

*** de rdb :
si on rapproche cet article d'un autre qui faisait état des prises de position d'autres leaders du CNRP, je commence à me demander si la "tactique" de SAM Rainsy n'est pas de faire conduire la future campagne législative du CNRP par d'autres leaders que lui, "désormais chargé uniquement de recevoir les coups" en premier !!!

Auquel cas, il peut désormais se permettre de reprendre toute sa liberté de parole vis à vis de M. HUN Sen et du CPP...
et de ne pas rentrer du tout à Phnom Penh.

car les grands de ce Monde ont une fois de plus "d'autres chats à fouetter que le duel HUN Sen/ SAM Rainsy .. et "la liberté du Petit peuple Khmer"

US Slams Gov’t Over Recent Political Turmoil
by George Wright | November 21, 2015

A U.S. State Department official told the country’s Senate on Thurs­day that recent political events in Cambodia, including the beatings of lawmakers outside the Nation­al Assembly and the removal of opposition officials from their seats and positions in parliament, were a cause for “grave concern.”

Testifying before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations’ subcommittee on Asia, Scott Bus­by, a deputy assistant secretary in the State Department’s bureau of democracy, human rights and la­bor, also said the U.S. was “very concerned” about the prospect of violence ahead of the upcoming commune and national elections.

Updating senators on the Oba­ma administration’s “rebalance to Asia” policy and the strategic im­portance the U.S. placed on supporting democracy in the region, Mr. Busby said the beatings, removals and jailings of opposition figures had created a restrictive and at-times violent political environment.

“Recent events…including beatings, arrests, imprisonment of op­position supporters, and the re­moval of opposition MPs, have sev­erely limited political space and are a cause for grave concern,
” he said, according to a transcript of his remarks.
Free and fair elections cannot happen in an environment where peaceful expression and activity by government opponents is subject to arbitrary limitations,” he added.

Mr. Busby noted that “the use of violence as a political tool also has returned,” citing the recent beatings of CNRP lawmakers Nhay Chamroeun and Kong Saphea outside the National Assembly following a “government-orchestrated demonstration” demanding that deputy opposition leader Kem Sokha step down as the parliament’s vice president.

These actions recall a more authoritarian period in Cambodia’s recent past and raise serious doubts about the government’s commitment to the reforms undertaken in 2014,” he said.

Phay Siphan, spokesman for the Council of Ministers, said Mr. Busby was wrong to say that any of the events of the last several months had been political.
Rather, he said, the courts were pursuing criminal cases without government interference.

Our stance is that the United States interferes too much with Cambodia,” he added.
