Rainsy: I will return when the people rise up against Hun Sen

Sam Rainsy, the “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), said on Saturday that he would return to the Kingdom when people rose up against Prime Minister Hun Sen in the aftermath of the loss of significant export agreements.

Currently living in France to avoid a slew of convictions, Rainsy told Radio Free Asia (RFA) of the “favourable time” to end the “dictatorship” in Cambodia and with it “nepotism”.

He said Hun Sen had lied to the people when he said China’s help would solve any problems the Kingdom faced should the EU withdraw Cambodia’s access to its “Everything But Arms” (EBA) agreement.
