Cambodian court orders sale of Sam Rainsy’s property

Former CNRP leader was sued by Prime Minister Hun Sen and senior rivals for failing to meet his legal obligations.

Phnom Penh Municipal Court has ordered the forced sale of the headquarters of the court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and the house of its former leader to cover legal compensation worth about US$2 million.

The order followed a request from four civil parties involved in four cases after CNRP leader Sam Rainsy failed to meet his legal obligations stemming from a verdict issued three years ago and other subsequent verdicts, reported the government-friendly Fresh News.

The civil parties include Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, National Assembly president Heng Samrin, Minister of Interior Sar Kheng and a lawyer representing the Cambodian government.
