Book lauds Hun Sen’s crusade against Covid-19

Cambodian leader is portrayed as a 'dashing hero who went against the current' to fight a deadly virus.

A new book detailing the exploits of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and his battle against the coronavirus pandemic will hit the book shelves early next month.

According to the government-friendly Phnom Penh Post, the book’s title translates to English as “Hun Sen: The dashing hero who went against the current to fight Covid-19”. The book will record his actions amid the outbreak as a “historical fact”.

The Khmer Writers Association (KWA) has been contracted to produce the book on the region’s longest serving leader, who returned Cambodia to a one-party state at elections two years ago after banning the main political opposition party and suppressing independent media.
