Social and political analyst Lao Mong Hay on Tuesday called on King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath to grant Cambodia National Rescue Party (CRNP) co-founder Sam Rainsy a royal pardon.
Mong Hay also requested the King and Queen Mother to bestow the honorific “Samdech” on Rainsy, whom he called a “wise man”.
He made the request on Facebook a day after Rainsy said all politicians should retire at the age of 70 in order to give the younger generation the opportunity to lead the country.
