Rainsy charged with defamation

A French court has charged former opposition leader Sam Rainsy with defamation for claiming that Prime Minister Hun Sen ordered the killing of former National Police chief Hok Lundy.

Two separate complaints were filed by Hun Sen and Dy Vichea, the deputy National Police chief and a son of Lundy.

Rainsy, the self-proclaimed “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), lives in exile in France to avoid a slew of charges against him in the Kingdom on top of the defamation case in France.
