Six Swedish parliamentarians urged Prime Minister Hun Sen in an open letter to allow acting opposition leader Sam Rainsy and other top party officials to return to Cambodia “without harassment or repercussions of any kind.”
The letter, which is dated October 16, was provided by opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) vice president Mu Sochua on Tuesday.
Rainsy, who has been living in exile in France since late 2015, in August made his latest promise to try to return to Cambodia on November 9. More than 30 members of his outlawed CNRP have been arrested since, charged with “plotting” and accused of supporting a coup attempt.
