Sar Kheng sues Rainsy for $1M over ‘revenge’ claims 

Minister of Interior Sar Kheng is demanding $1 million in damages from Sam Rainsy after the “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party claimed he supported a revenge plot against Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Sar Kheng, who is also deputy prime minister, filed a complaint last week at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court against Rainsy, requesting the court sentence him according to the law and demanding four billion riel ($1 million) in compensation.

The complaint stems from a claim Rainsy made on his Facebook page that Hun Sen’s son-in-law Dy Vichea was plotting revenge against the prime minister, which Sar Kheng supported, over the 2008 death of his father, National Police chief Hok Lundy.
