Assembly Opens Today

After a three-month break, the Nat­ional Assembly is set to re­open today. The sole order of bus­­iness is a report by Assembly President Prince Norodom Ran­ariddh on the As­sembly’s activities, said Deputy Secretary Gen­er­al Chan Ven. He also will discuss his recent trip to Bangla­desh where he was appointed deputy chairman of the Asian Inter-Parlia­mentary  Union.
A draft law to pave the way for a local trial of Khmer Rouge leaders could be debated, as well as legislation on commercial banks and financial enterprises.
Not on the agenda, said Chan Ven, is questioning of Cabinet Minister Sok An by opposition politicians who allege he accepted a bribe to keep the Naga Floating Casino open.
Sam Rainsy Party official Son Chhay said he would keep pushing for Sok An to answer questions and will raise the subject when the Assembly’s permanent committee meets.
