Cambodian Government Urges Public to Ignore Opposition ‘Propaganda’ Calling For Protests

Cambodia’s Minister of Interior Sar Kheng on Wednesday warned the public not to fall victim to “propaganda” from the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and protest the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), which he said had won the right to govern through legitimate elections.

“Do not believe in the propaganda of certain politicians who seek to mobilize people to support them by demonstrating against the government,” Sar Kheng said, without using the name of the opposition party, which the Supreme Court banned in November 2017 for its role in an alleged plot to topple Prime Minister Hun Sen’s regime.

“Appealing to people to join demonstrations aimed at overthrowing the government is unlawful, so I am working hard to bolster the security of the nation,” he said.
