Prime Minister Hun Sen on Monday mocked rights advocates for criticizing the recent arrest of a woman who dressed too “sexily” while selling products on Facebook, challenging them to post similar “sexy” photos and videos of their wives and daughters.
The National Police arrested Thai Srey Neang last month for dressing provocatively on the social media website, charging her for pornography. Hun Sen, who was at a graduation ceremony in Phnom Penh, made a shocking comment on Monday asking those who criticized the arrest to post “sexy” videos of their wives and daughters and that he would help publicize these posts.
“Please have your wife [pose] nude or wear sexy [clothes], and we will help broadcast. I am willing to pay and have the posters posted on trees. Do you dare?” he said, with officials at the meeting laughing at his suggestion.
