PHNOM PENH, (Khmer Times) – About 2000 Phnom Penh police officers gathered at the Olympic Stadium to hear a review of their activities during the past year (fifth legislative mandate) on the morning of July 30 and were informed that they were called out more than 400 times to face protestors.
 
“About 445 protests had occurred in the past 12 months, including more than 80 protests led by the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), Lieutenant General Chhuon Sovann, Phnom Penh’s police chief said.
 
The achievement of upholding public safety and maintaining order during the demonstrations, strikes, and processions in Phnom Penh was praised.
 
Since the beginning the fifth legislative mandate in late July 2013, Cambodia’s situation was one of unrest:  protests by the Cambodia National Rescue Party, strikes by the trade unions, and demonstrations by land activists
 
“The capital’s police were maintaining public safety and keeping order very well during the year,” said Chhuon Sovann.
 
Pa Socheat Vong, governor of Phnom Penh, who also attended the event, requested that the capital city’s police officers actively support the Ministry of the Interior’ Village /Commune Safety Policy. 
 
“Progress with the Village/Commune Safety Policy will bring more confidence and trust from the people,” said Pa Socheat Vong.
