Anti-terrorism police at the Interior Ministry were yesterday still investigating a 26-year-old man whose Facebook page carried a threat to kill Prime Minister Hun Sen.
Pich Rotha turned himself in to Preah Sihanouk provincial police on Thursday. He was sent for further questioning at the headquarters of the anti-terrorism police in Phnom Penh.
Mr Rotha said someone had hacked his account.
He allegedly wrote: “Hun Sen, you killed lots of Khmer people. It will not be long before you die by my hand.”
The post included an image of a Glock gun and a picture of Mr Hun Sen’s family.
“Some day I will shoot you in the head,” the post said.
Thou Saroeun, deputy chief of the anti-terrorism police department, said the suspect was being questioned.
“He said someone hacked his account so we have cooperated with him to investigate the perpetrator who wrote this message,” Mr Saroeun said.
