We’ll send back Cambodia dissidents on our own accord, says Putrajaya

Foreign Affairs Minister Saifuddin Abdullah has confirmed the detention of a Cambodian opposition official, adding that Malaysia received a request from the Cambodian government to send back a few individuals who would be entering the country.

Saifuddin added that Malaysia was not under any pressure to deport them, and that it would not necessarily accede to Cambodia’s request.

“We have received a request (from Cambodia) but we decide on our own,” he told reporters when met at the Parliament lobby.
