Accused Kem Ley killer not cooperating: ministry



Manekseka Sangkum


1- The suspected 'assassin' not wearing a mask [was he meant to be identified to conceal the identity of the real killer?], 2- wearing double shirts in a very warm climate [was he planning to rid of the top shirt after the killing, or was the shirt previously worn by someone else who committed the deed?], 3- why was he caught so quickly by the police forces after the incident? [was there a routine police presence near and around the gas station that had not been out of the ordinary prior to the incident?], 4- was the suspect's given name - 'choub somlab' [meet-to-kill] something he made up in a hurry because that was his code-name and instruction for the assignment, or was he instructed to use the name [along with the story about the money debt owed to him by the victim] to preempt the suspicion as to the motives and identity of those behind him and the killing?, 5- why has the close-circuit camera video footage not been released or discussed by the authorities? Is it because they want to protect the sensitive details of the investigation, or because the captured details in the footage compromise the true identity and masking of the mastermind[s]?  


Note point 4 indicates that the organiser[s] had not thought through carefully over the credibility of the pretext used to explain the assassination i.e. that the victim owed the killer some few thousand dollars. The circumstantial and material contrast between the 'assassin' and the victim invalidates the claim, casting even more suspicions as to the identity of powerful forces behind the scene and the suspect. 

Yet, ultimately and credible or not, this kind of random elimination of, or attack on,  the regime's perceived critics and dissidents would invariably conclude with the politically aligned and partial court system. If this suspect had not been found to front the killing, the high profile nature of the crime itself would have necessitated the arrest and prosecution of some other innocents as scapegoats to complete the story - as had been done with the killing of the trade union leader and activist Chea Vichea - or by eliminating the lead - as was the case with the Chhut Wutty murder. It is reported that the families of the men who violently attacked the two opposition law-makers recently have even moved to a bigger house after their respective heads of household have been imprisoned! This stands in stark contrast to the circumstances of families of those opposition figures and activists currently detained in prison who are suffering severe financial and economic hardships.  

In essence, this pattern of killings has been in vogue since the organised mass killings in the 1970s that have made the country synonymous with "genocide" and brutality around the world. That this particular suspect even has a past in the Pol Pot military [presumably as a young recruit along the border with Thailand before joining the non-communist resistance faction, and later on the State of Kampuchea regime] and of peasant background is interesting and pertinent. The rank and file, as well as the base or grass-roots, of the KR movement consisted of Cambodia's overwhelming rural population; semi-literate or illiterate and easily susceptible to communist indoctrination and propaganda persuasion. There were many prominent 'Kem Leys' then whom the KR targeted and executed, along with a wholesale class of educated population by order of that same mysterious and invisible power behind the scene. Had these thousands of the nation's educated people not been murdered, it is unlikely that the present regime that Hanoi put in place in 1979 would have survived to this day; nor would the country have been raped and plundered on the same devastating scale with such impunity. At least, not without provoking a more widespread or populist revolt and unrest within the ranks of the populace...

Accused Kem Ley killer not cooperating: ministry
Thu, 28 July 2016 ppp

Oeut Ang, 44, the alleged killer of political analyst Kem Ley, is not answering investigators’ questions and has refused to acknowledge his parents, according to a senior Interior Ministry official.

“The perpetrator did not answer anything and did not recognise his parents,” Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak told local news outlet Kampuchea Thmey yesterday.

Sopheak, who could not be contacted by the Post yesterday, also said the security camera footage from the Phnom Penh petrol station where Ley was shot on July 10 had been sent to court and would be released once the investigation was completed, though he did not provide a time frame.

In a video released by police, Ang called himself Choub Samlab or “meet to kill”, and initially “confessed” to killing Ley because he owed Ang $3,000; however, interviews with the suspect’s wife, mother and neighbours have cast some doubt over that motive.

HENG SAMRIN AND THE “PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF KAMPUCHEA”



28 July 2016
HENG SAMRIN AND THE “PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF KAMPUCHEA”


Concerning today’s decision by the court in Phnom Penh relative to the defamation case brought against me by Heng Samrin, I would like to make two remarks:

1) The proclamation of a republic generally follows the abolition of a monarchy. Such events mean the physical or political elimination of a monarch. When the new authorities formed after 7 January 1979 proclaimed their “People’s Republic of Kampuchea,” they did express their intention to eliminate former King Norodom Sihanouk from the political scene. Even though they did not call for a physical elimination associated with a death sentence – it was the Lon Nol regime that sentenced Norodom Sihanouk to death after the proclamation of the “Khmer Republic” in 1970 – they really wanted to eliminate/kill Norodom Sihanouk at least from a moral and political point of view. The “Khmer Republic” and the “People’s Republic of Kampuchea” had the same intention and showed the same spirit in their actions when it came to trying to eliminate our former King Norodom Sihanouk. In the first half of the 1970’s and throughout the 1980’s, the two regimes grossly insulted and defamed our former King. They nurtured the same anti-monarchy and anti-Norodom Sihanouk spirit, and this is the most important point to consider in this case.

2) On my 17 November 2015 Facebook post – which is the cause for the lawsuit – I did not mention anybody’s name and just referred to the “regime born on 7 January 1979.” However it is Heng Samrin, as an individual and in his current capacity as President of the National Assembly of the Kingdom of Cambodia, who is now suing me for “defamation” on behalf of the “People’s Republic of Kampuchea.” On what legal and judicial grounds is Heng Samrin entitled to do so on his own? Has there been a prior decision by the court or any relevant authorities allowing him to sue me on behalf of the “regime born on 7 January 1979”? Or is this lawsuit a personal dispute? One day in the future, when victims of the deadly K5 Plan implemented under the “People’s Republic of Kampuchea” are allowed to take legal action before an independent court, who will designate whom to face the court and to respond to charges possibly associated with crimes against humanity? Will Heng Samrin appear again?

“This is the first time we come to the ACU for help,” said Sovann. “If the ACU cannot deal with this issue and tell us whether it is related to corruption, that means the ACU is incompetent.”

About 40 members of the “SOS” airport community gathered in front of Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) headquarters yesterday to demand an investigation into Por Sen Chey District Governor Hem Darith.

Darith has forbidden community members from building new houses or altering land ownership in the long-disputed area, said Kao Sovann, deputy leader of the community.

According to a letter issued by the Council of Ministers, permission must be granted to construct new buildings or modify the land around the airport. But residents say the governor is violating the law by not even considering their requests.

ACU chief Om Yentieng said his unit plans to look into the complaint as soon as possible. Residents, meanwhile, say they’ll give the ACU three weeks to respond to their complaint before they petition the Council of Ministers.

ELCs don’t reduce poverty: paper


Manekseka Sangkum

The ELCs are not meant to 'reduce poverty' in the first place. No other countries have compromised their political independence and territorial sovereignty to the same extent. These are in essence, political schemes that legitimise the taking over and exploitation of a country's land and natural assets by foreign states largely disguised as corporate investors, whilst denying the indigenous population the right to own and till the land as their ancestors had done. Some observers have likened the phenomenon and risks posed to the Ukraine crisis which has seen its eastern parts and the Crimea invaded and taken over by the foreign state with vested interests: Russia.

ELCs don’t reduce poverty: paper
Thu, 28 July 2016 ppp
Jack Davies


Economic land concessions (ELCs) are supposed to be transforming Cambodian agriculture into a heavyweight industry and raising the living standards of millions of rural Cambodians, according to government policy documents.

But, in an academic paper published last month, Arnim Scheidel, a PhD in ecological economics at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, argued that poverty reduction is merely a cover for what he terms “land capture”.

Cambodia’s “poverty crisis” – the World Bank estimated 3 million Cambodians were living below the poverty line in 2012 – has been taken as a tool to legitimise land capture, Scheidel wrote, with “the proposed solution [to the crisis] . . . clearly biased towards the establishment of capital-intensive large-scale agribusinesses”.

ELCs are billed as transforming rural subsistence farmers into paid plantation employees, according to Scheidel, who terms this a “strategic depiction” that “dismisses that more than half a million self-employed farmers have lost land, livelihoods and environmental incomes” to concessions.

“From the perspective of agro-investors, who in Cambodia are strongly tied to ruling party elites, there are also strategic reasons to define poverty as issues of employment and monetary income,” he wrote, arguing that these definitions “[favour] large agro-projects with formal jobs and incomes over small-scale peasant ways of life.”

Cambodia court orders self-exiled opposition leader to pay 40,000 USD for defamation case


Source: Xinhua   2016-07-28

PHNOM PENH, July 28 (Xinhua) -- A Cambodian court on Thursday ordered self-exiled opposition leader Sam Rainsy to pay a compensation and fine of 160 million riel (40,000 U.S. dollars) after the court found him guilty of defaming National Assembly president Heng Samrin.

"The court orders Sam Rainsy to pay a compensation of 150 million riel (37,500 U.S. dollars) to the plaintiff and a fine of 10 million riel (2,500 U.S. dollars)," said the verdict pronounced by Phnom Penh Municipal Court judge Ros Piseth.

The verdict was released after a 40-minute hearing in which the plaintiff's lawyer was present, as Sam Rainsy and his lawyer were absent.

Heng Samrin filed a defamation suit against Sam Rainsy in December after the opposition leader posted a video clip on his Facebook page in November, claiming that Heng Samrin, who was the top leader during the 1980s regime, had indicted late King Norodom Sihanouk of being a traitor and sentenced him, in absentia, to death.

Sam Rainsy, leader of the main opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party, has been in self-imposed exile in France since November to avoid a two-year-prison sentence in a 2008 defamation case brought by Deputy Prime Minister Hor Namhong.

Cambodia, Vietnam to build market on border

The Vietnamese government yesterday agreed in principle to provide a grant of $2 million to Cambodia to build a model market aimed at boosting cross-border trade between the two countries, officials at Cambodia’s Ministry of Commerce said.

The market will be constructed on 1.5 hectares in Kandorl village, in the Memot district of Tbong Khmum province, about 1 kilometre from the nearest Cambodia-Vietnam border crossing, according to Mao Thora, a secretary of state at the ministry.

“The market will be a place to sell both Cambodian and Vietnamese goods, of which I think most of our goods are agricultural products,” he told reporters after the signing of a memorandum of understanding for the project.

“It will play a role to facilitate trade by people living along the market and improve their livelihoods,” he added.

Niem Chheng and Ananth Baliga

Beleaguered CNRP leader Sam Rainsy was found guilty this morning of defaming National Assembly president Heng Samrin in a Facebook post last November.

The trial, which was over in the span of an hour, centered on a Facebook post in which Rainsy alleged that the Heng Samrin-led government of 1979 convicted the late King Norodom Sihanouk for being a traitor and sentenced him to death in a show trial.

Following a 10-minute deliberation, Phnom Penh Municipal Court judge Ros Piseth said Samrin’s complaint was consistent with Rainsy’s post and that the CNRP leader was guilty under Article 305 of the criminal code.

“Based on the facts and evidence, the court finds out that there is enough evidence against the accused, Sam Rainsy, for public defamation committed on Facebook page of Sam Rainsy on November, 17, 2015,” said Piseth.

Re: Cambodia blocking Asean consensus on Sth China Sea: diplomat, breaking news, July 24, 2016.

The Cambodian delegation, in its attempt to block a joint statement by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) in Vientiane, over the grouping's standpoint on the South China Sea, is evidently working for Cambodia's own benefit and against that of the regional grouping.

This is not the first time Cambodia has acted against Asean's combined interests. In 2012, as host and chair of Asean, Cambodia prevented Asean foreign ministers from releasing a joint statement after their annual gathering in Phnom Penh.

Issuing a joint statement after a yearly meeting has been a custom in practice for Asean ever since the grouping's formation in 1967.

Hence, Cambodia's membership in Asean should be seriously reconsidered by the grouping - for its own survival, unity and prosperity.

Sometimes, a finger needs to be cut off in order to save the rest of the body.

Kem Ley Murder Recalls a Familiar Pattern of Political Intrigue in Cambodia

Cambodia Falls Into A Familiar Pattern of Political Intrigue

As mourning for popular pundit Kem Ley draws to its close, the investigation into his murder turns up no new leads, and key witnesses and supporters go into hiding, Cambodia appears to be following a script that should now be familiar to all Cambodians.

“This is not the first time intellectuals, patriots, and activists who fought to rescue our country have been slain,” Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) President Sam Rainsy said on RFA’s Special Discussion Show. “I have noted that the slaying of activists follows the same well-orchestrated style set by the authorities.”

While Sam Rainsy didn’t directly accuse Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government of carrying out the fatal attack, he recited a litany of killings that he claims all have similar hallmarks. These killings would be impossible to carry out with official cover, he said.

“Those include the grenade attack [on an opposition political rally] on March 30, 1997;  the killings of well-known union leader Chea Vichea, and two other union leaders, namely Ros Sovanareth and Hy Vuthy; as well as Chut Wutty and the recent case of Dr. Kem Ley,” he said during the July 23 broadcast.

Rosewood exports to Vietnam achieved with fake signatures: official
Wed, 27 July 2016 ppp
Jack Davies and Phak Seangly


Thousands of cubic metres of endangered Siamese rosewood were sent to Vietnam in 2014 with export permits bearing the Photoshopped signature of a retired Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) secretary of state, a ministry official said yesterday.

The trade in Siamese rosewood was internationally outlawed under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in 2013. The next year, in spite of the ban, nearly a million cubic metres were registered in the database of the CITES secretariat in Geneva as having been exported to Vietnam from Cambodia in six batches.

When this discrepancy was first brought to light last month by British NGO Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), the Cambodian CITES management authority – a department within MAFF responsible for granting trade permits for protected species as well as annually reporting on the trade to the secretariat – said it was unaware of the exports.

CITES Cambodia’s 2014 report to the secretariat in Geneva listed just two Siamese rosewood trees being exported – to Canada. If the Vietnamese management authority had registered imports from Cambodia, those imports must have been conducted with counterfeit permits, CITES Cambodia officer Suon Phalla said in an email last month, adding that his office was unaware of any such forgeries.

ACU to expand anti-corruption curriculum

ACU to expand anti-corruption curriculum
Wed, 27 July 2016 ppp

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport is expanding the Anti-Corruption Unit’s anti-corruption curriculum to students in grades 4 to 6, but human rights experts said the body was in no position to lecture students about the issue.

Ministry spokesman Ros Salin said anti-corruption education would be included in the students’ three hours per week of social studies classes. The lessons were added to the junior and high-school curriculums over the past two years.

The lessons identify corruption as abuse of power, bribery and conflict of interest and teach students about the Anti-Corruption Law.

Legal and human rights consultant Billy Tai said while he didn’t necessarily think the curriculum was a bad idea, what students will be taught will be “completely different” than what they see in society. “I’m not sure there’s any confidence in the ACU achieving any meaningful outcome,” he said.

The ACU, which developed the curriculum with Transparency International Cambodia, has recently been occupied primarily with investigating CNRP acting president Kem Sokha and his alleged mistress.

Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director Phil Robertson said: “It’s the height of hypocrisy for the ACU to claim [it’s] qualified to educate youth on anti-corruption principles.”

TI Cambodia executive director Kol Preap argued that starting the courses young could help change people’s mindset and “embed a culture of anti-corruption” in the long term.

Immigration police yesterday raided a home being rented by 57 Vietnamese nationals in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district and arrested 11 who were unable to produce passports, an official said.

The 11 – including one woman and one child – were taken into custody to determine their status, said the immigration department chief, Uk Hai Sela. If they are found to have been in Cambodia illegally, they would be deported, he said.

The other 46, all men, did have Vietnamese passports with valid business visas, but they were fined $125 for lacking work permits, Hai Sela said. “They were found in a house they had been renting, where they were all living together,” he said.

The raid comes on the heels of at least three roundups of Vietnamese nationals and fishermen in the past two weeks. Hai Sela, however, denied that there were any coordinated government efforts to target them specifically.

Vu Le Ha, in charge of consular affairs at the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh, said he could not confirm if there was a coordinated effort to crackdown on Vietnamese nationals.

Immigration department director Sok Phal said he was planning a press conference next week to address the issue, and declined further comment.

Sovantha presses on with defamation case against CNRP activists

Lay Samean


Social media celebrity-activist Thy Sovantha yesterday asked the Phnom Penh Municipal Court to proceed with a defamation complaint against two CNRP activists for contradicting her claim that 900 people had attended one of her NGO’s provincial meetings.

Sovantha is suing Mounh Sarath, head of the CNRP taskforce for Oddar Meanchey, and Oun Vansak, a CNRP member and administrator of the I Love Cambodia Hot News II Facebook page, for saying on Facebook that only 70 people attended the Youth and Social Affairs meeting in Oddar Meanchey’s Trapaing Prasat district in June.

Speaking to reporters, Sovantha said she asked the court to proceed with the suit and was demanding $10,000 from each of the accused. “I came here to confirm the complaint, and I do have more proof,” she said without detailing the evidence.

Sovantha added she wanted to make sure the accused used Facebook carefully and did not accuse her without evidence. However, Sarath said he had the freedom to express his views on Facebook and had no intention of defaming anyone.

He equated his post to the differing estimates for the number of participants at slain political commentator Kem Ley’s funeral procession on Sunday.

He added that Sovantha’s complaint was intended to disturb the work he did for the CNRP.

Sovantha is also suing CNRP acting president Kem Sokha in a separate defamation case.

Cambodia must accelerate economic reform and develop a sense of “urgency” if it wishes to continue to attract American investment amid growing regional competition, the head of the US-ASEAN Business Council said yesterday.

Alexander Feldman, the council’s president and CEO, who led a delegation of senior executives from eight American companies on a mission to Phnom Penh this week, said the best chance for Cambodia to benefit from an inflow of US private sector investment into the ASEAN region was to speed up its adoption of a long-awaited mutual investment protection agreement.

“A bilateral investment treaty would go a long way in addressing many concerns that American companies have when thinking about investing in Cambodia,” he said.

However, the treaty would necessitate that the Kingdom adopt an impartial judiciary that could handle commercial disputes, he stressed.

The lack of independent economic courts, which has been a continual criticism levied by American companies, has hindered US confidence in doing business here.

“If Cambodia was to have a fair and well-functioning commercial court, based on an impartial judicial system that follows the rule of law, more American businesses would look to expand operations into Cambodia, especially as the ASEAN Economic Community continues to develop,” Feldman said.

Vietnam Plays the Blame Game Over the Fish Kill Disaster

Formosa Steel Goes on the Offensive Over Fish Kill in Vietnam

The owners of the Formosa Ha Tinh steel mill have accepted responsibility for a chemical spill that devastated the fishing industry along Vietnam’s central coast, but questions still remain over how the industrial project and its faulty pollution controls won government approval.

Vietnamese lawmaker Vo Kim Cu, a key figure in Ha Tinh province where the plant is located, broke his silence over his role in approval of the plant as he spoke to the local media for the first time this week.

“I was really surprised” about the spill, he told Tuoi Tre newspaper. “We insisted that Formosa strictly follow Vietnamese law and environmental protection standards, and we thought they would do so, given their huge investment in the project.”

Adhoc's Prey Veng coordinator yesterday gave evidence at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court in the case of four human rights workers accused of bribing Kem Sokha’s purported mistress.

Eang Kimly was questioned by the court for one hour in a closed-door session in which no lawyer was present, and afterwards refused to divulge the details of her interrogation.

“I cannot answer, because the case is being processed in court, but I answered every question the judge asked me,” Kimly said.

A court official, who requested to remain anonymous, said Kimly was brought in at the request of the defence to support the jailed activists’ case. The official was unsure if other defence witnesses would appear before the court.

A former Khmer Rouge messenger told the Khmer Rouge tribunal yesterday of the paranoia and fear that drove cadres to turn against each other during a series of internal purges.

Witness 2-TCW-1005, whose name was kept confidential by the court, testified that he joined the communist revolution in 1973 at the age of 15, after a demonstration led by his school teachers in which he participated was met with a violent response.

“Later on, they were shot dead. In light of the experience I had when I was at school, I decided to join the revolution to fight against Lon Nol,” the witness said. But the party he joined – which implicated “traitors” through self-criticism sessions – fostered a climate of suspicion.

Revolutionary Flags – propaganda magazines – were read at party meetings and dictated: “We must take absolute measures in [a] zero tolerance manner and without hesitation” to “eliminate enemies burrowing within”.

“Everybody was afraid of everybody else, and we did not trust one another,” the witness said. “I sacrificed myself to the party, and I would not protest any assignment by the party.”

ACU clears senior traffic cop of corruption complaint

The Anti-Corruption Unit has cleared senior traffic police officer Run Roth Veasna of any wrongdoing after he was subject to a complaint alleging a wide range of corrupt conduct.

According to a document uploaded to the ACU website, the complaint called for action against the director of the National Police’s traffic safety department for awarding positions running national road checkpoints – considered a plum assignment – to officers close to him.

However, based on his clarification, the document states that the checkpoints are assigned in line with procedure. It also added that Veasna: “Has no sibling or relatives . . . who work or serve at the department.”

More broadly, the complaint alleged Veasna oversaw a system that ignored correct bureaucratic processes, citing the example of obtaining police licence plates via the technical expert office rather than through the administration department.

Activist monk ‘in hiding’, says friend

But Buntenh, an activist monk and member of the funeral committee for slain political analyst Kem Ley, has gone into hiding after receiving a tip off that he was being hunted by authorities, according to a friend and local media reports.

Tim Malay, head of the Cambodia Youth Network, said he had spoken to his friend Buntenh on the phone at about 3pm yesterday. He said the outspoken founder of the Independent Monk Network for Social Justice had told him he was in a “safe place”.

“This is the issue of those who want to threaten freedom of our expression,” Malay said, adding Buntenh was still in Cambodia when he made the call.

It came after a report from outlet Voice of Democracy, which quoted Buntenh as saying he had received a call from an unknown man claiming to be a police officer at 7am yesterday, warning him to go into hiding as police were seeking his arrest.

Japanese capital flooding in to Cambodia

Total Japanese investment in Cambodia under the Kingdom’s qualified investment project (QIP) scheme surged tenfold during the first half of the year, driven by Japan’s improved economy and a hefty capital injection by one of its biggest retail giants.

The Council for Development of Cambodia (CDC) approved a total of seven Japanese investment projects as QIPs during the first six months of the year, with total investment of $259.7 million, compared to just $22.3 million during the same period a year earlier.

Yasuhara Hiroto, head of the Japan Desk at the CDC, said while the number of approved QIPs was similar to last year, total investment soared as the result of Aeon Mall Co Ltd investing in construction of its second mall in Phnom Penh.

“This big investment in the first half is heavily dependent on the Aeon investment,” he said, declining to disclose Aeon’s share of the total. Aeon’s Cambodian office could not be reached yesterday for details on the investment amount, but the company previously said it sunk $205 million into building its first 108,000 square metre mall in Phnom Penh, which opened in June 2014.

Aeon’s second mall, currently under construction inside Pong Peay City on the northern flank of the capital, is set to cover more than 151,000 square metres of floor space.

Sok Touch should resign from his government-appointed post as border researcher/monitor if he wants to be taken seriously and be respected by the Khmer people, not only in protest of Dr Kem Ley's assassination, but also in solidarity with other human rights defenders and border critics being imprisoned or detained such as Ny Chakrya and colleagues, Senator Hong Sok Hour, as well as MP Um Sam An - the man he despises for merely drawing public attention to Hun Sen's dubious handling and manipulation of the nation's territorial issues with Vietnam. 

Following the opposition CNRP's boycotting of parliament in protest of 'purported' electoral irregularities in 2013, he also called on the two vote-winning parties to sit down together at the same table chaired by the King; an event the CPP media made full use of by having it televised before the national audience. What this incident did was to give the public the impression that the ruling party was prepared to work out an amicable solution to the political deadlock at the time, assuaging concerned questions and national anxieties, and further, in compliance with the Monarch's wishes for national reconciliation, even if the televised statement read by the King to the two sparring parties had - more likely than not - been prior scripted and approved by CPP-minders behind the scene! 

If Kem Ley's murder has anything to do with the nation's politics - as have the border issues with neighbouring countries, particularly, the nation to the east - Sok Touch's ostensible call for an investigation into the real identity of the mastermind is not going to amount to anything more substantial than a cosmetic exercise or smokescreen that the ruling CPP has resorted to on more than a few occasions since the limelight and euphoria that was/is the Paris Peace Accords. Indeed, we could even see one of the regime's trusted hands or PR faces - in the mold of Sok Touch himself - appointed to lead the 'investigation' work. After all, there's no shortage of these ill-bred "critics" seemingly plying their trade outside of the regime's sphere to take up the mantle...
