Ahead of Return To Cambodia, CNRP Leader Says Thailand Refused Her Entry Into The Country

Following Sam Rainsy’s August announcement of a planned return, Hun Sen said arrest warrants for opposition members had been sent to all ASEAN states.

Opposition leader Mu Sochua said Thai immigration officials prevented her from entering Bangkok on October 20, where she planned to meet supporters ahead of a planned return to Cambodia on November 9.

Opposition members, including exiled leader Sam Rainsy, have announced they will return to Cambodia in November. The announcement comes as Cambodia has witnessed democratic backsliding and international pressure to improve its rights situation.

Mu Sochua said on Wednesday that she flew from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Bangkok the afternoon of October 20, but was taken to a room by police officials and informed she was banned from entering the country.
