Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday issued a directive to national working groups to educate and inform the public across the country to avoid any actions intended to topple the legitimate government through a “Sam Rainsy colour revolution”.
In a letter dated May 7, Hun Sen said Rainsy, the “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party, had made occasional attempts to return to Cambodia this year to “again lead a colour revolution”.
“[He does so] by appealing to the military and the people to topple a legitimate government born out of free and fair elections according to democratic principles.”
