Members of the outlawed opposition CNRP who have fled the country said this week that they will return to Cambodia next month alongside leader Sam Rainsy, despite the growing number of people arrested in connection with their support for Rainsy’s promised homecoming.
CNRP activist Suon Chamroeun on Tuesday said he had fled to Thailand the day before, after receiving a tip that he would be summoned by the Battambang Provincial Court.
“I think the summons letter is just like the toilet tissue,” Chamroeun told VOD. “It’s useless. It’s not about law.”
