Cambodian Government Revokes Passports of 27 CNRP Members

Cambodia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has revoked the passports of 27 members of the outlawed opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) who have fled the country to avoid a government crackdown, accusing the activists of involvement in a plot to topple Prime Minister Hun Sen.

RFA’s Khmer Service learned from the ministry’s spokesman Kuy Koung that the passports of the 27 were made invalid on Nov. 20, and that the activists have all been charged and served with arrest warrants for participating in acts of “treason.”

“We nullified their passports because they broke the law,” said the spokesman.
