Government officials dismissed a sound technician’s comments that the five-day Association of Asian Parliaments for Peace conference last week was moved from Chaktomuk Theater to Hotel Le Royal because of problems with the sound system.
National Assembly General Secretary Kol Pheng, who was named general secretary of the AAPP, said the event moved to the hotel Wednesday to accommodate small-group discussions.
The company that installed the theater sound system said it works fine, he said.
The conference, which ended Friday, was the first event held at the recently refurbished theater.
National Assembly President Prince Ranariddh, president of the AAPP, said the meeting reflected a new era of peace. “The conference we organized here for the first time in more than 30 years has helped paint a better picture of Cambodia.”
