In a video clip released yesterday, the Office of the Council of Ministers said it considers those who were recently arrested over border issues as “extremists” and legal action was taken against them in accordance with the “will of the Cambodian people”.

The explanation came following protests in the streets of Phnom Penh seeking the release of Rong Chhun, president of the Cambodian Confederation of Unions, and Soung Sophorn, president of Khmer Win Party, who were arrested over statements about the Cambodia-Vietnam border demarcation.

The government reaction was made in the 20-minutes video clip under the title “Legal action against border extremists is a legal procedure and in accordance with the will of the Cambodian people” released by the Press and Quick Reaction Unit of the Council of Ministers yesterday.

“The Royal Cambodian Government under the leadership of Samdech Prime Minister Hun Sen has been working hard to solve the border issues with the neighbouring countries for decades
