CNRP: Rainsy set for return to Cambodia

A facebook post over the weekend claimed Cambodia National Rescue Party acting president Sam Rainsy will return to Cambodia “before Khmer New Year” after moving to France to avoid arrest on a slew of outstanding legal cases and sentences.

The post said Rainsy would be accompanied by other senior CNRP officials who moved abroad after being banned from politics when the opposition party was dissolved by the Supreme Court in November last year.

On Facebook last week, senior CNRP officials Um Virakroath and Eng Chhai Eang posted: “Let’s go back home.”
