Cambodian PM cancels one lawsuit against opposition

Litigation dropped after property dispute resolved.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen says a lawsuit against a senior advisor to the opposition Candlelight Party following alleged criticisms of the ruling party has been dropped after a settlement was reached in a property dispute.

Damages of US$500,000 were sought from Kong Korm for allegedly criticizing the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) after a Jan. 7 ceremony marking the end of Khmer Rouge rule in 1979.

Hun Sen also referred a dispute over the ownership of his family home to the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU).
