Former opposition leader Kem Sokha today said that he will never partake in any activities that could bring about turmoil to the Kingdom.
Sokha’s vows came days after the ruling Cambodian People’s Party last week produced a video clip reminding foreign diplomats currently who visit Sokha not to encourage him to partake in activities that could undermine democracy and could destroy the Kingdom’s peace.
Muth Chantha, chief of Sokha’s cabinet, said that Sokha will never partake in any activities which could undermine peace.
“I will never ever do something which may cause turmoil and chaos to the country where I live,” Mr Chantha quoted Sokha as saying. “I never want or never have an intention to leave my home country at all because I have chosen her as the only roof that I have to live under and as a base for my political career.”
The CPP’s video clip was issued last week after dozens of foreign diplomats began meeting with Sokha at his residence in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district after Phnom Penh Municipal Court eased his bail restrictions.
So far, Sokha has held meetings with ambassadors of France, United States, Germany, Australia, Japan, Switzerland, United Kingdom, the European Union, Swiss, Belgium and Finland.
