i dont know the details and am not interested in finding out, but judging by all the other foreign funded bad news in this country, i write it down as picking up the collateral damage from their holier-than-thou foreign policy. pasting another martyr on the cross of stupidity

just saw this which makes me think my previous post has substance
PM HE: Interfering into Cambodian Internal Affairs Jeopardizes ASEAN-Australia Joint Statement(Video inside)


Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 21 - Prime Minister warned that the joint statement of ASEAN-Australia Special Summit would be at risk if there were any interferences into Cambodia's internal affairs, addressing to 15,197 garment workers in Phnom Penh’s Terk Thla on Wednesday.

Prime Minister HE has reacted strongly to the comments of opposition groups in Australia stating that there will be pressure and blame on Cambodia at the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit, to be held from March 17-18 in Sydney, Australia.

Prime Minister also reacted to Richard Di Natale, Australian Senator and leader of the Australian Greens, for requesting the Australian government to withdraw the invitation of the premier to the Summit.

The premier explained that ASEAN’s principle is based on consensus that every decision or statement can be made possible thanks to the mutual agreements among all member states; if one member declines or vetoes, the statement can not be passed.

“If certain actions contradict Cambodia’s independence and sovereignty, or interfere into Cambodia's internal affairs, Cambodia will not agree to issue the joint statement” stated Prime Minister HE.

Prime Minister HE will lead Cambodian delegation to attend the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit. During his trip to Australia, the premier is scheduled to meet with Cambodian citizens living in Australia.

I wonder what these same groups had to say about their own govt sending refugees to Cambodia, and the Nauru torture/detention centre?

The same thing could never happen to you. This guy is usually portrayed in the western press as an "activist" or "human rights defender". It's terrible that he got killed but he was nothing of the sort. He was just a firebrand for rampant nationalism and racism. In that way he wasn't a lot different from the opposition he supported, he just repeated the old jaded line about the Yuon swallowing up Cambodia. The same old jaded line the opposition have been slinging since they were in a coalition with Pol Pot in the 80s/90s. He was down in Chba Ampul with his clipboard doing highly scientific studies where he would decide who was Khmer and who was Yuon by his opinion alone. Then he'd use this data to back up the nonsense claims that there are millions of Vietnamese here. He reminds me of those characters like Nick Griffin or Johnny Adair who try to start problems but are seriously lacking when it comes to dealing with the situations they create. Keep stirring the pot, see how it goes. :lol:

You couldn't make this shit up....

The Cambodian prime minister has vowed to beat up protesters if they burn effigies of him at a summit of South-East Asian leaders in Sydney next month.

Hundreds of Cambodians living in Australia are expected to rally against HE when he attends the summit between Australia and the 10-member Association of South-East Asian Nations [Asean] in mid-March.

Cambodia’s democracy is under attack, with the country’s main opposition party dissolved last year and the jailing of opposition leader Kem Sokha. Independent news outlets have also been shut down.
“I want to remind those who plan to demonstrate against me that my visit is an honour for their government,” HE said in a speech, according to translated subtitles.
“If they burn my effigy ... I will pursue them to their houses and beat them up.”
