Ambassador of Cambodia to Indonesia, Hor Nambora, interrupted a press conference of opposition leader, Vice President of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, Mu Sochua, in Jakarta Wednesday. “The person in front of you here is a fugitive. She is also a criminal for Cambodia,” Nambora said to the press referring to Sochua before the conference began.
Sochua was holding the press conference facilitated by the Kurawal Foundation, a Jakarta-based non-profit organization that promotes press freedom and democracy.
She issued a press statement to emphasize that exiled CNRP leaders, among whom are acting president of the party, Sam Rainsy, and Sochua herself, will stick to their plan of returning home on November 9, when Cambodia celebrates its 66th independence day.
