A government statement on Tuesday said legal action would be taken against former opposition leader Sam Rainsy should the Supreme Court request it, if he were to return to Cambodia.
The government statement said Rainsy returning to Cambodia would be interpreted as a political act promoting the former opposition party.
It added that relevant authorities would take legal action should he return, but only if the court requested it.
