Handful of European parliamentarians warned against intention to escort self-exiled ex-opposition leader to Cambodia

Phnom Penh – Cambodia on Saturday warned a few European parliamentarians against their intention to accompany self-exiled former opposition leader Sam Rainsy to Cambodia.

“It is with great surprise that a handful of European parliamentarians reportedly announced their intention to escort an escaped convict Sam Rainsy repetitively declaring his return to Cambodia in an undetermined date,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MFAIC) said in a statement.

“The MFAIC wishes to recall that Sam Rainsy has been charged of and sentenced with jail terms for many counts, namely treason, incitement to commit felonies, insult to His Majesty the King Norodom Sihamoni, demoralization of the armed forces, just to name a few,” the statement said.
