Cambodian PM says no need to make amnesty law for leaders

Khmer Times Share:

PHNOM PENH, (Xinhua) — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said Wednesday that his government has no need to make an immunity law to protect leaders from prosecution when they step down from their positions.
 
“It is unnecessary to say about the amnesty law to protect predecessors,” he said at the inauguration ceremony of a palm oil plant in Preah Sihanouk province. “Sam Rainsy (president of the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party) has proposed me two times to create the law, but I disagreed with him.”
 
The prime minister, who is also vice-president of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), said that he has not done anything wrong, so there is no need to make such a law.
 
Hun Sen, 64, who has been in power for 30 years, announced that he will still be the CPP’s sole candidate for the premiership in the national elections in 2018.
