Cambodian opposition party lawmakers were turned away from a prison in the country’s Tbong Khmum province on Monday following a failed second attempt to visit jailed CNRP leader Kem Sokha, who is being held on a charge of treason, sources said.

The request to visit Kem Sokha was turned down by the investigating judge in the case, who said that only the party leader’s family members and lawyers may see him before his trial.

The group had previously tried to visit on September 11.

Speaking to RFA’s Khmer Service, Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) parliamentarian Mao Monyvann said that party members and constituents will continue to travel to the province’s remote Trapeang Phlong prison each Monday to show their support.

“People always ask that we relay their message to Kem Sokha that they are with him, and are upset that the country’s constitution was violated by his arrest,” Mao Monyvann said.

Arrested without a warrant in the capital Phnom Penh early on Sept. 3, Kem Sokha was accused of treason in a move critics say shows prime minister Hun Sen is intensifying his attacks on political opponents ahead of national elections scheduled for 2018.

He was formally charged on September  5.

Trump, in UN debut, urges the world body to reform

The U.S. has asked 193-member nations to sign a declaration on U.N. reforms, and more than 120 have done so.

United Nations — President Donald Trump made his debut at the United Nations on Monday, using his first moments at the world body to urge the 193-nation organization to reduce bureaucracy and costs while more clearly defining its mission around the world.

But while Trump chastised the United Nations — an organization he sharply criticized as a candidate for president for its spiraling costs — he said the United States would "pledge to be partners in your work" in order to make the U.N. "a more effective force" for peace across the globe.

New Effort to Honor Khmer Krom Fighters Allied With US in Vietnam War

Men Kimseng VOA Khmer 18 September 2017

WASHINGTON — Fifty years ago, U.S. Army Captain Steve Yedinak returned home from Vietnam believing that he had led covert operations that contributed significantly to the U.S. efforts to counter communist infiltration from the North into South Vietnam.

Yedinak, now 77, left behind more than 200 local troops who had fought alongside U.S. forces. Ethnic Cambodians living in South Vietnam, the Khmer Krom of Task Force 957, Mobile Guerrilla Force (MGF), were “fun to be with,” he recalls, “and they were vicious.”

They weren’t a well-known force, during or after the war, and for years Yedinak has worked to obtain recognition for the Khmer Krom fighters’ contribution to the U.S. war effort.

To that end, he teamed up with Scott Walker, an advocate for the Hmong and Montagnard fighters who, after the war, settled in Minnesota. Walker succeeded in obtaining recognition for their efforts from the state Legislature in 2012.

The White House Women Who’ve Got Trump’s Back

For the first time in any administration, two women are now in command of its top public-facing roles — press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and communications director Hope Hicks.

For Sarah Huckabee Sanders, chaos in President Donald Trump's White House has proven to be a ladder.
Not that she would call it that.

Just days after she replaced Sean Spicer as press secretary in July — a job she'd been moonlighting in for months — Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was also out the door.

Radio Free Asia Closes Reporting Hub, Cambodians Miss ‘Critical’ Coverage

Radio Free Asia last week announced the closure of its news bureau in Cambodia after 20 years of operation.

PHNOM PENH — After Radio Free Asia last week announced the closure of its news bureau in Cambodia after 20 years, Cambodian listeners expressed disappointment over the shuttering of another reporting hub presenting independent and critical news to the public.

The closure of the U.S.-funded broadcaster’s in-country operations came just days after the English-language Cambodia Daily newspaper closed after declining to pay a $6.3 million alleged tax bill and as fellow U.S. broadcaster, VOA has seen its Khmer-language broadcasts dropped by FM radio affiliate stations.

Kheang Meng, a market stall seller in central Phnom Penh, said he had relied on RFA’s Khmer-language news broadcasts and original reporting about Cambodia for many years.

The 70-year-old said he was disappointed that he could no longer easily tune into RFA on FM stations such as those operated by the Women’s Media Center and Beehive Radio. All FM stations were ordered in recent weeks by the Information Ministry to no longer carry RFA and VOA Khmer-language news broadcasts.

U.S. lawmaker wants North Korea out of the U.N



By Patricia Zengerle, Reuters 18 September 2017

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. Senate's East Asia subcommittee is asking China and 20 other nations on Monday to clamp down on North Korea by cutting ties, closing down diplomatic facilities and working to oust the country from the United Nations.

As North Korea has defied U.N. Security resolutions to conduct nuclear and ballistic missile tests, Washington has been scrambling for an effective response.

Many of President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans have been calling for tougher action, imposed more quickly, including calling for stiff "secondary" sanctions and other punishments for companies, banks and countries that do business with North Korea.

In a letter seen by Reuters that will be sent to ambassadors from China and 20 other countries, Republican Senator Cory Gardner, the subcommittee chairman, asked that the countries immediately end diplomatic and economic relations with Pyongyang.

"Maintaining official diplomatic relations with a regime that continues to defy international law and threaten nations across the globe only serves to reward nefarious behaviour," wrote Gardner.

"In addition to cutting off bilateral ties, I urge your government to support expelling the DPRK from the United Nations," the letter said.

Reuters 18 September 2017

BEIJING/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump spoke about keeping pressure on North Korea with economic sanctions imposed through the United Nations, the White House said in a statement on Monday.

The United States and South Korea and separately Russia together with China, carried out military drills in a show of force against North Korea, which has defied U.N. Security Council resolutions to conduct nuclear tests and ballistic missile tests.

Trump and Xi spoke on the phone days after Trump and his aides publicly discussed potential military action against North Korea. On Friday, while delivering an address at a military base outside of Washington, Trump said he was "more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming."

Trump is attending the annual United Nations General Assembly in New York this week, while Xi is not. North Korea's nuclear threat is likely to loom large on the agenda.

The two leaders also discussed Trump's coming China visit, the Xinhua News Agency said.

Hun Sen Urges Cambodians to Oppose ‘Foreign Interference’

Hul Reaksmey VOA Khmer 18 September 2017

The remarks came a few days after Hun Sen called on Cambodians to learn Mandarin Chinese as part of a wider pivot towards Beijing.

PHNOM PENH — Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday called on Cambodians to rise up and oppose “foreign interference” in the country, escalating anti-U.S. rhetoric by accusing the United States of “imperialism” and hypocrisy regarding human rights commitments.

Speaking to thousands of garment workers in the capital, Hun Sen gave a brief history of attempts by Washington to overthrow the regime of former King Norodom Sihanouk and the secret U.S. bombing campaign in Cambodia in the 1970s.

“Please all compatriots, stand up and carry out national policy, protect our sovereignty and oppose foreign interference,” he said.

“The past grave suffering conducted by American imperialism. We haven’t forgotten the bombs and unexploded ordnance left on our soil. This story is happening again,” he added.

The remarks came a few days after Hun Sen called on Cambodians to learn Mandarin Chinese as part of a wider pivot towards Beijing following the arrest of Kem Sokha, an opposition leader, who was jailed on treason charges earlier this month.

As Cambodians Venerate Ancestors, Political Tensions Pushed Aside

Kann Vicheika VOA Khmer 19 September 2017

Cambodians are heading to pagodas to give offerings, putting aside concerns over their country’s future.

PHNOM PENH — Cambodians are this week celebrating Pchum Ben, or Ancestor’s Day, an important religious festival in the Khmer calendar. Despite rising political tensions ahead of next year’s election, Cambodians have headed to the pagoda to give offerings, putting aside concerns over their country’s future.

Earlier this month, the leader of Cambodia’s opposition, Kem Sokha, was arrested in a pre-dawn raid at his home in Phnom Penh and later charged with espionage. Independent and U.S.-linked media outlets have been shuttered amid growing anti-Washington rhetoric from the ruling Cambodian People’s Party.

Despite the growing tensions, Pchum Ben celebrations continued as usual, according to attendees.

Nou Linna, 35, who visited Ounalom Pagoda for the festival, said that she went along without fearing repercussions from the political tensions.

“It will not affect the festival since the people are knowledgeable about politics and the festival. Politics will be left to one side, while Buddhism will always be preserved since we are all Buddhist,” she said, adding that she thought fewer people had attended the pagoda than in previous years.

Five sentenced over Phnom Penh grenade attack

Phnom Penh Municipal Court has delivered life sentences to three people and 30-year jail terms to two more for their roles in a grenade attack in the capital’s Boeung Keng Kang III commune in September last year.

The failed assassination plot left several people injured after the explosive missed its intended target, a shop belonging to 36-year-old Ea Lyhour – the ex-boyfriend of the mastermind – and rolled into street 163 and exploded.

The mastermind, Sok Kimly, 41, and the two men contracted to kill Lyhour – Bun Pheakdey, 32, and Sak Mab, 36 – were on Friday found guilty of premeditated murder and yesterday received life sentences.

Another two – Nou Somban, 33, and Pheakdey’s girlfriend, Bou Sophea, 25 – were found guilty of being accomplices to premeditated murder and were handed 30-year terms.

Reached yesterday, Kimly’s defence lawyer Suy Sokhon – who relayed the information about the sentences – said his client maintained her innocence and would appeal.

Business Insider: Selling life insurance in an untapped market

Kali Kotoski, The Phnom Penh Post
Mon, 18 September 2017

Prudential Life Assurance first entered the Cambodian market in 2013 at a time when few in the country understood the value of life insurance products in long-term financial planning. A partnership with Acleda Bank, the largest bank in the Kingdom, has helped Prudential grow steadily and extend its reach across the Kingdom. The Post’s Kali Kotoski sat down with David Nutman, CEO of Prudential Cambodia, who took over the reins in November.

How has Prudential expanded since it first entered the market? 

Currently, we operate in more than 100 Acleda branches, so we are in key cities, provinces and districts. In 2014, we started setting up direct agency operations that have been growing as well. In the last few months we have opened offices in Battambang and Siem Reap. That brings our total direct agency operations to three and we hope in time that we will have more offices as we expand.

In terms of growth, in June of this year we hit 100,000 policy holders. Achieving that in around four years is something we are very pleased with.

What is the vision you have for Prudential in Cambodia? 

Well, Cambodia has a population of 15 million. And from a life insurance perspective the country remains underpenetrated. A lot less people have life insurance here than in pretty much any other Asean country. As far as we are concerned the market is still untapped, meaning that the opportunity for growth is positive. Prudential is very much focused on Asia as the region has been at the forefront of growth.

Vietnam has expressed inter-est in investing in Cambodia’s aquaculture sector and providing technical support to help boost fisheries production, according to Vietnamese media reports.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Vu Hong Nam said during a visit to Tonle Sap Lake late last week with the governor of Kampong Chhnang province that an official initiative for bilateral collaboration was in the works to help Cambodia promote economic development by using Vietnamese fisheries technology and experience.

The Ministry of Defence on Saturday signed an agreement with a Chinese company to create a 30,000-hectare tree plantation in Preah Vihear province, an official said yesterday.

Director of the Defence Ministry’s Development Department Lieutenant General Ouk Korsa said that Chinese firm Bigstar International (Cambodia) would cooperate with members of Intervention Division III to develop the agri-business.

Korsa said the plantation, which will include tree species for commercial sale such as acacia, will cover land already assigned to families in Division III and brigades 7, 8 and 9.

Families with plots of land used for the project will receive money from the sale of the timber, he said.

“We have signed the agreement with the company already, I think it will not take a long time. The company will send experts to cooperate with us and study further about the land conditions for planting the trees,” he said.

Yesterday Lieutenant General Srey Doek, deputy joint chief of staff of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces and the commander of Division III in Preah Vihear province, said the project would help boost the economic fortunes of military families in the area.

Opposition’s Chhay seeks answers on ‘red-handed’ crimes

Kong Meta, The Phnom Penh Post
Mon, 18 September 2017

Opposition lawmaker Son Chhay last week sent a letter to Justice Minister Ang Vong Vathana seeking his ministry’s interpretation of the criminal procedures for “red-handed” crimes – a legal rationale used by the government to justify the arrest of Cambodia National Rescue Party President Kem Sokha in spite of his parliamentary immunity.

Kem Sokha was arrested earlier this month following the reappearance of a 2013 video showing him admitting to receiving US assistance to plan his political career. The remarks were construed by the government as collusion with a foreign power to harm the Kingdom, with Sokha summarily charged with treason.

Officials have justified the arrest as a “red-handed crime” – a nod to the constitutional clause allowing lawmakers’ arrest in cases of in flagrante delicto offences – because the video still exists online.

Chhay’s letter asks the justice minister to explain how Sokha’s and other arrested CNRP members’ crimes fit under the heading of in flagrante delicto, which refers to a crime in which the perpetrator is caught in the act.

Police raise an alarm in card-game raid in Takeo

A Takeo province native found himself dealt a bad hand on Friday when police raided a card game at his home and his friends folded and ran.

The group was gambling in Tram Kak district’s Leay Bor commune, but when several officers arrived the full house quickly emptied, with all but the host shuffling swiftly to the exit.

Flushed from the property, the jokers left three motorbikes, which police seized. The sole suspect was sent straight to court.

Hun Sen lashes out at US for deportations

Mon, 18 September 2017

Prime Minister Hun Sen continued to criticise the US on Friday over its decision to suspend certain visas for Foreign Ministry officials due to the Kingdom’s unwillingness to take back Cambodian citizens that the US wants to deport, appearing to allude to the possibility of protests should the ban remain in place.

During a wide-ranging speech at Vattanac Industrial Park on Friday, the premier said the US’s actions went “too far”, and accused the US of splitting up families.

“Separating father and child, and wife and husband is not virtuous and very immoral,” Hun Sen said. “We don’t expect the US to have no virtue . . . when it’s always talking about morality and human rights.”

The US’s efforts to deport Cambodian nationals with felony convictions have been panned by critics, who point out that most of the deportees arrived in the US as refugee children fleeing the Khmer Rouge, having lived their entire lives as US permanent residents and do not speak Khmer or have family in Cambodia.

On Friday, Hun Sen said Cambodia may rejoin a programme to find and repatriate the remains of American military personnel who died in the Vietnam War if the US rescinds the visa ban.

Chinese arrested after radio report

Niem Chheng, The Phnom Penh Post
Mon, 18 September 2017

Immigration Police who burst into a Phnom Penh apartment building on Saturday morning expecting to find a Chinese VoIP scam based on reports from a local radio station didn’t find any evidence of an extortion ring. They did, however, discover 29 Chinese nationals living in Cambodia illegally who will now be deported, officials said yesterday.

Uk Hai Sela, director of the General Department of Immigration, said police became concerned after hearing an interview on ABC Radio with a caller who claimed that a female friend had been beaten and extorted for money by a group of Chinese nationals.

Hai Sela said that when police showed up to investigate, they found no evidence of a VoIP scheme – online extortion rings run by Chinese nationals and routinely busted in the Kingdom – but did discover a group of 50 Chinese nationals who were living or working in Cambodia illegally.

According to Hai Sela, 21 of the Chinese nationals had valid e-visas but did not have work permits and will be made to pay fines. Many had been in Cambodia for a year, he said.

Witnesses drop dime on dozen dealers in capital

A crew of Phnom Penh drug users were making efficient use of the space in a guesthouse room until they were busted on Friday by Meanchey district’s boys in blue.

Local witnesses tipped off police when they saw 12 suspicious-looking men and women go into one room.

Sure enough, cops showed up for a search and found three bags of an illicit substance.

Motorbikes were taken as evidence and the dozen druggies were forwarded to the station for interrogation.

Kim Sok to remain in detention

Ben Sokhean, The Phnom Penh Post
Mon, 18 September 2017

The Appeal Court on Friday upheld an 18-month prison sentence and $200,000 compensation claim against political commentator Kim Sok on charges of incitement and defamation.

Sok was sentenced last month for echoing in a radio interview widely shared suspicions that the government was behind last year’s killing of revered political analyst Kem Ley. The commentator faces two lawsuits brought by Prime Minister Hun Sen – one after his initial remarks, and the other for statements made attempting to clarify the initial remarks.

Touch Tharith, spokesman of the Appeal Court, could not be reached yesterday, but told government-aligned Fresh News that the municipal court’s decision was “correct”.

Sok’s lawyer, Choung Choungy, said that the court also decided to reject Sok’s bid for bail the same day. “We filed a complaint to request for his bail, but the Appeal Court won’t allow him . . . They said they have to keep him for the court to continue the procedure, and to prevent him from committing further offences – to prevent [him from causing] any chaos to the public order,” Choungy said.

The attorney said they would file an appeal against both decisions later this week.

Capital authorities had a pileup on their hands on Saturday when four cars were heavily damaged following a truck collision.

Police say the lorry was driving in heavy traffic in Meanchey district when it clipped the vehicle in front of it.

During the confusion three other autos rear-ended the truck.

Luckily no one was injured, and when cops came, all five of the machines were carted away while charges were sorted out.

National and Provincial Military Police in Kampong Speu seized hauls of illicit timber and arrested two suspects in separate cases over the weekend.

A Provincial Military Police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the press, said the authorities intercepted a Phnom Penh-plated truck on National Road 41 carrying 14 pieces of timber used for making pepper trellises in Kong Pisei district’s Snam Krapoeu commune on Friday.

He said two men were detained – driver Phon Da, 33, and and Su Chamroeun, 33, and are being questioned about ownership of the truck.

“The two suspects have not admitted yet about who is behind them or whether they belong to a company,” he said.

Chhuen Sothon, Provincial Environment Department director, said it is suspected the truck was en route to Takeo province to sell the timber to Vietnamese traders.

“The authorities are . . . launching further investigation,” he said, noting that the case report had not yet reached his desk.

Kingdom to enjoy special status at China biz event

Cambodia has been selected as the Country of Honour for next year’s China-Asean Expo (CAEXPO) and China-Asean Business and Investment Summit (CABIS), a high-profile annual business event held in Nanning, China, that aims to expand business cooperation between China and the 10 Asean member states.

The distinction of Country of Honour means Cambodia will take centre stage at the event’s pavilions and will host its own business summit prior to the Nanning event, according to organisers.

Every year the designation of Country of Honour is rotated in alphabetical order to a different Asean country. Brunei had the distinction during this year’s CAEXPO and CABIS event, which was held September 12-15.

Cambodians in Long Beach protest arrest

Cambodian-Americans from Southern California held a peaceful protest in front of Long Beach City Hall on Saturday to urge the Cambodian government to release opposition leader Kem Sokha and to call for the United Nations to intervene in the country’s currently tense political situation ahead of next year’s national elections.

Boone Ran, 45, who fled to the US with his mother after his father was killed during the Khmer Rouge era, was among those who took part in the demonstration, which drew hundreds of protesters.

Ran said he attended the protest to show his support for Sokha. “We ask Hun Sen, we plead him,” he said. “We ask him to release [Sokha]. If not, we are not going to have free elections. We need to repair our country, which is in deep trouble.”

Sokha was arrested earlier this month and charged with treason after a four-year-old video, in which he says he received advice from the US on how to build his political career, resurfaced online. Senior government officials have claimed Sokha received assistance to instigate a “colour revolution” in the country. The arrest has been widely condemned both in Cambodia and abroad.

Ran, like many others at the protest, said he was concerned with the government’s recent actions, which have also included a crackdown on independent media and an escalation of anti-US rhetoric.

New firm takes over for Cintri to tackle trash in Sihanoukville

Move over, Cintri – there’s a new garbage collector in town.

For the first time in a dozen years, Sihanoukville has a new waste management company, and it has already started collecting trash ahead of the Pchum Ben holiday.

After a one-month bidding process, Sihanoukville officials on Friday awarded a 10-year contract to newcomer waste management firm KSWM (Kampong Som Waste Management) Co Ltd over the established Cintri, according to Preah Sihanouk Governor Y Sokleng.

The two companies were the only ones to submit bids, according to Sokleng. He said officials awarded the contract to KSWM because Cintri did not submit several required documents, while KSWM sent a full application including an investment plan and a waste collection schedule.

“I hope this company is good, but I don’t want to promise it will be better,” Sokleng said. “The company promised to clean all the waste on the street. But it can be done only when there is participation from the people.”

Prince Real Estate snaps up Phnom Penh Tower

Fri, 15 September 2017

Prince Real Estate (Cambodia) Investment purportedly signed an agreement yesterday morning for the purchase of the Phnom Penh Tower from Hyun-dai Engineering (Cambodia), two anonymous sources and an executive confirmed.

The tower, built in 2011, is one of the largest in Phnom Penh with 22 floors and a net floor space of 1,033 square metres. Contacted yesterday, Hyundai Engineering (Cambodia) General Manager Dae-Gun Sun declined to provide details of the purchase agreement but acknowledged that the building had been sold.

“I can’t talk about this. This is very confidential,” he said, adding that he could provide details after Pchum Ben.

Official warns ex-RFA staffers about continuing to work in Cambodia

Information Ministry spokesman Ouk Kimseng on Friday made a thinly veiled threat to jail Radio Free Asia reporters if they continued to work in the Kingdom, following the broadcaster’s announcement last week that it had ceased in-country operations.

The outlet shut down its Cambodian operations after its reach was severely limited by the government’s recent shuttering of more than 30 frequencies, many of which broadcast RFA shows. It was also under pressure from the Finance Ministry for allegedly failing to pay taxes and for being unlicensed.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Kimseng seemed to lash out at the broadcaster, saying he would not acknowledge any media requests from RFA henceforth, while criticising the outlet for continuing to “work in the dark”.

“I do not care whether there is RFA or not. So please do not tell me ‘I am from RFA’, because you have announced that you will stop working in Cambodia,” he said.

Kimseng claimed the broadcaster wanted to “conceal” its reporters’ work, even calling them “spies”, and added that doing so would warrant legal action. Kimseng’s threat was later supported by Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak.

Fresh arrest over Facebook criticism of Hun Sen

Mon, 18 September 2017

A 20-year-old woman was charged in Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court yesterday with incitement and public insult for posts made on Facebook about Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Queen Mother.

The woman, Moeung Lihor, a fruit vendor working in Thailand’s Rong Klua market, was arrested on Friday afternoon by Military Police after authorities had been tracking her Facebook posts over the past several months, said Prom Theng, the chief of the provincial Military Police’s judicial bureau.

“In short, she posted news on Facebook and she defamed Queen Mother [Norodom Monineath] and Samdech Hun Sen. It affects the leader’s reputation,” he said.

The posts, shown in screenshots published by government-aligned Fresh News and Swift News Daily, feature edited photos in which the prime minister is labelled a “traitor” and “murderer”. The premier and the Queen Mother are also labelled “yuon” – a derogatory term for Vietnamese.

Lihor was arrested at her home in Poipet town after police learned she had returned home from working in Thailand, Theng said, adding that the authorities acted on their own initiative. “No one filed the complaint, but authorities and the prosecutor saw it as terrible,” he said.

According to Theng, Lihor confessed responsibility for posting the messages, but said she was inspired by another user with the pseudonym “Ear Kimseng”, who often posts similar content.

Hun Sen amps up attacks on US

Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday ratcheted up his attacks on the United States, announcing that he had instructed the Immigration Department to check for American “spies” and suggesting the US Embassy pull out its Peace Corps volunteers.

The premier’s anti-US rhetoric has intensified in the past few weeks following the arrest of opposition leader Kem Sokha, a move widely condemned by civil society and foreign governments. Senior government officials have claimed Sokha was receiving US assistance to foment a “colour revolution” in the country.

In response, the US Embassy questioned Cambodia’s commitment to democracy and has denied the claims – based on a 2013 speech given by Sokha – as a “red herring”. This week it also issued a notice to its citizens warning of anti-American rhetoric in Cambodia.

In an unrelated move, the US also imposed visas sanctions on senior Foreign Ministry officials for the Kingdom’s refusal to accept Cambodians living in the US who are slated for deportation due to felony convictions.

Hitting back, the premier last week suspended a programme that assisted the US in finding and repatriating the remains of American soldiers killed during the Vietnam War.

Environmental NGO Mother Nature dissolved

The Interior Ministry on Friday announced it had stricken critical environmental NGO Mother Nature from its registry, effective immediately, with the group saying it had requested the move and would continue to investigate sand dredging and export violations in the country’s southwest despite the de-registration.

In a letter disclosing the move, the ministry said the NGO had requested the removal of its own accord in a letter from Mother Nature head Prum Thomacheat on August 23 requesting dissolution of the environmental group.

Deported Mother Nature co-founder Alejandro Gonzalez-Davidson said on Friday that the request had been prompted by constant harassment of two other co-founders, Thomacheat and fellow monk Sok Chantra.

He added that the move would not affect the functioning of the group, which would now operate as a “movement of concerned citizens”.

“So the best strategy is to not continue as a registered NGO but as a movement of concerned citizens,” he said. “All our members are volunteers and we don’t need much funding.”

The letter, signed by Interior Ministry Secretary of State Pol Lim, says that the ministry had decided to remove Mother Nature from the government’s list of NGOs, thereby invalidating any documents given to the group permitting its operations in Cambodia.

Streaming platforms focus on content to attract subscribers

The local market for streaming video on demand, or SVOD, has become a whole lot richer in recent months, with three new paid platforms launching since July to join international heavyweight, Netflix. The four internet television services are now competing head-to-head for subscribers in Cambodia, but their biggest challenge is not each other, but rather persuading budget-conscious Cambodians to pay for video content in a market awash in free and pirated offerings.

Malaysia-based streaming platform iFlix, which launched in August, is the latest paid SVOD contender to enter the Cambodian market. Its arrival comes 18 months after the launch of Netflix in the Kingdom, but iFlix executives are confident its cheaper monthly rate (about $3 per month), emphasis on local and regional programming, and a distribution tie-in with mobile network Smart are fuelling a faster-growing subscriber base.

While Netflix does not report subscriber figures for individual countries, and iFlix keeps theirs closely guarded, iFlix Country Manager Adeana Greenlee said Cambodia has been one of the company’s fastest growing subscriber bases to date.

“iFlix is doing really well in Cambodia,” she said. “We’ve grown past other countries in the region that launched before us, in terms of the amount of subscribers we have. This is one of the better markets we’ve seen thus far.”

‘Well-founded fears’: Montagnards returning to Vietnam speak of dread for what awaits them

When Rlan Lap was 25 years old, he ran into the jungle. For the next two years, he lived mostly in hiding in the thick green of the trees.

A Montagnard – a member of the mostly Christian ethnic minority groups who dwell in Vietnam’s Central Highlands – Lap had participated in a protest advocating religious freedom in 2001. His dissent marked him out to police.

Lap mostly foraged for vegetables and drank from a nearby waterfall. But when he ran out of food, he would sneak back to his home village and scavenge rice. Once, police followed him back into the jungle.

“They shot me – right in the chest,” he said, but with a synthetic or rubber bullet. It stung, but it didn’t wound him badly.

He spent more than three years in jail – where he was beaten into unconsciousness – but once he was released, the harassment didn’t stop.

“They summoned me to the police station. They beat my head on the table until my head and teeth bled,” he said.

A slice of history turned to rubble

Monk residential quarters behind the remnants of the Entri Sam Virak pagoda’s vihear structure earlier this week. Heng Chivoan

THE PHNOM PENH POST, 15 SEPTEMBER 2017

Amid a pile of debris at the Entri Sam Virak pagoda, the painted, smiling faces of the Buddha and a cohort of angels peer out.The mural is on a wall that was, until two weeks ago, part of a vihear – or monastic temple – cherished by historians and visitors, in part, for its unusual paintings.

Unlike many monastic temples in Cambodia, it survived the civil war and the Khmer Rouge’s atheistic destruction, only to be demolished last month on the orders of its abbot, Seang Sok, who did not ask for permission or inform local authorities.

About 20 metres from the debris, a group of workers were fixing into place a billboard showing the blueprints for a new 38-metre-tall temple, as a layperson nearby called for donations for the new religious sanctuary.

Built in 1948, Entri Sam Virak’s central structure was certainly not old by Cambodian standards, but historians recognised it for being representative of the architectural period under French protection leading up to the Sangkum era, and for its murals documenting the political climate of the period. In 2007, it was declared a national heritage site by the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts.

Cambodia’s Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn will lead a delegation to the United Nations General Assembly in New York that starts on Tuesday, and also hold sideline bilateral talks with US State Department officials, according to a media statement issued by the Foreign Ministry today.

“HE Senior Minister Prak Sokhonn will deliver his statement at the 72nd Session of the UNGA focusing on the collective effort to address climate change and terrorism, Cambodia’s achievement on the Millennium Development Goals and Cambodia’s efforts towards the Sustainable Development Goals,” stated the media statement.

“At the sideline of the General Assembly, the senior minister will hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts from Cuba, Colombia, Brazil, the UK, the US and other dignitaries,” it added.

On Friday, Prime Minister Hun Sen Cambodian called on the United States on to withdraw its Peace Corps volunteers in an escalating row with the US Embassy.

The premier said he also ordered the Foreign Affairs Ministry to investigate all US citizens who “might be suspected of spying”.

Cambodia’s Crumbling Democracy

Protesters shout near the Council of Ministers during a demonstration
in central Phnom Penh December 30, 2013. Cambodian opposition supporters,
backed by striking garment-factory workers, rallied to demand long-serving
Prime Minister Hun Sen step down and call an election.
As democracy is dismantled, will Cambodians return to the streets?

The Diplomat, George Wright, September 16, 2017

When tens of thousands of opposition supporters took to the streets of Phnom Penh shouting “Hun Sen, step down!” in wake of the disputed 2013 general election, it was the biggest threat to the prime minister’s power in a generation.

The protests quickly gained momentum as opposition leader Sam Rainsy called for “non-stop” demonstrations, culminating in around 50,000 taking to the streets by December to call upon the premier step down or announce a new election, along with other demands including a hike in minimum wages.
