Hun Sen Vows to Arrest Economic Subversives, Three From CNRP Jailed

Prime Minister Hun Sen on Monday warned that those stirring up social unrest by calling for borrowers not to repay their debts, apparently alluding to opposition CNRP figure Sam Rainsy and his supporters, would be arrested — the same day a CNRP member was jailed.

Sun Thun, a former CNRP party official in Kampong Thom, was arrested by provincial authorities on Monday morning, according to a family member and the provincial police chief.
