Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday announced that he was discharged from hospital and will return to the Kingdom today.
Mr Hun Sen was in a hospital in Singapore after he experienced shoulder pain following his trip to Geneva last week.
In Singapore he was accompanied by his wife Bun Rany, and the Premier had to cancel this week’s meetings.
“Because of a problem in my right shoulder, I was asked by doctors to have a medical check-up conducted and my shoulder treated,” Mr Hun Sen said in a Facebook post on Saturday. “I apologise to all friends, both foreign and Khmer, who were set to meet me. I have to cancel these meetings.”
Yesterday, Mr Hun Sen said he will return to Phnom Penh after doctors gave him a clean bill of health.
“I left the hospital this morning and I will return [today],” he said. “I will lead a Council of Ministers meeting on July 12, 2019.”
“I wish to say thank you to all countrymen who wished me well and were concerned about my health problem,” Mr Hun Sen added. “The master of hell does not want my life because he needs me to protect the Cambodian people. Those who want me dead will be disappointed when they see me healthy.”
On Sunday, Mr Hun Sen said doctors told him to suspend playing golf until he has fully recovered, adding that supporters of the former opposition CNRP were using his hospitalisation to spread fake news.
