Gov’t requests changes to deportation MoU with US

Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Prak Sokhonn on Thursday requested the US government to amend a memorandum of understanding (MoU) regarding the deportation of Cambodian-American convicts to Cambodia.

Sokhonn, who is also deputy prime minister, said deportation could lead to depression-related suicide when they were separated from their families.

He raised the issue during a meeting with new US ambassador to Cambodia Patrick Murphy at the ministry.
