The National Assembly yesterday asked Interior Minister Sar Kheng to take action against any former CNRP lawmakers who continued to use the National Assembly’s logo on their personal documents.
The request was made in a letter signed by National Assembly spokesman Leng Peng Long.
It said all former lawmakers of the dissolved opposition CNRP had lost their parliamentary rights and immunity, as well as membership of the National Assembly, on November 17.
However, the letter claimed one individual had secretly used the National Assembly’s logo on a personal letter.
“This act confuses the public, both nationally and internationally, as well as impacts on the National Assembly,” the letter said.
Mr Peng Long said former CNRP lawmaker Eng Chhay Eang had used the National Assembly logo on a document and questioned whether others were guilty of doing so as well.
“It’s a crime if they use the National Assembly’s logo on their documents,” he said. “The Interior Ministry must take action on them according to the law.”
A condolence letter written by Mr Chhay Eang last week after the death of former minister Sean Peng Se, who died on January 23, reportedly carried the logo.
Interior Ministry spokesman General Khieu Sopheak could not be reached for comment.
