Sar Kheng: Only ‘fifty-fifty’ chance of Rainsy returning

Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng said on Sunday there is a 50 per cent possibility that outlawed opposition leader Sam Rainsy would return to Cambodia as his diplomatic measures abroad had reached a dead-end.

In a video clip posted on his Facebook page on Sunday, Sar Kheng, who is also Minister of Interior, said it was not the first time that the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) “acting president” had vowed to return.

Rainsy, who fled the country, now lives in France to avoid arrest on a slew of criminal charges and convictions.
