Hun Sen wants a law to prevent post-election boycott [Hun Sen cheating the opposition [CNRP] again]

Give our kids a better deal
PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Prime Minister Hun Sen on Wednesday said he wanted to have a law that stated that any political parties that don't join the first session in the parliament convened by the King after general election, it means that those parties give up their seats. 

His comment came after working groups of Cambodian People's Party (CPP) and Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) plan to meet this Friday to resume election law talks which will be finalized by top leaders of the two parties the following day. 
"I would ask H.E Sar Kheng [Interior Minister] to lead a meeting to ensure that there will not be parliamentary boycott after election, so the election law which will be implemented in the future should state that if elected Members of Parliament of any political parties will not join the session convened by King, their seats will be seized," he said during closing ceremony of the annual meeting of Ministry of Interior. 
"If they don't join [parliamentary session], National Election Committee can share their seats to other political parties. It's easy to finish everything" he said.

Expanding Khmer Rouge trials could spark war: Cambodian PM [Hun Sen said like this because he is scared of being put on trial. Only Hun Sen is capable of starting a war]

AFP | 26 February, 2015 

In this handout photo courtesy of the ECCC, Cambodia's former Khmer Rouge President Khieu Samphan sits at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) as his verdict is delivered on the outskirts of Phnom Penh.


Cambodia's strongman Prime Minister warned that prosecuting more Khmer Rouge suspects in the country's UN-backed genocide court could ignite a civil war.

Hun Sen, himself a former low-level commander in the brutal communist regime, said the prosecution of officials "almost goes too far" and could start a new conflict in his country.
The Khmer Rouge massacred up to two million of its own people in the late 1970s. So far only three people have been convicted by the court.
Prosecutors are currently investigating two possible new cases against several lower-ranking cadres, a move which is strongly opposed by Hun Sen, who marked three decades in power last month.
"The expansion of the scope (for more cases) almost makes people return to the jungle," Hun Sen said during remarks at a conference in the capital Phnom Penh.
"If war reoccurs, how many people would die?" he asked, adding that "the value of peace, the value of lives" must be considered above seeking justice.

Prime Minister Hun Sen used the opening of a major international conference in Phnom Penh on Thursday morning to publicly question why former Australian Foreign Minister and Paris Peace Agreements architect Gareth Evans had attacked him in a scathing article last year.
Evans, once called the “father of Cambodia” by a senior CPP lawmaker, was seated awkwardly behind the premier on stage as he delivered the opening keynote address for a two-day Responsibility to Protect (R2P) conference at the Sofitel Phokeethra hotel.
Turning and directly facing Evans in front of numerous diplomats, dignitaries and scholars, including Australian Ambassador Alison Burrows, Hun Sen asked why his former ally no longer wanted to be friends.
“I just wonder…why, my friend, did you criticise me last year as reported in the newspapers?” he asked to Evans’ obvious discomfort, before complaining about the international community’s reluctance to explicitly refer to preventing the return of the Khmer Rouge in the Paris Peace Agreements.
“I remember the memories of working together,” Hun Sen continued, recalling driving around with Evans in Sydney and late night negotiations in Jakarta in the lead-up to the 1991 accords.
“We have been friendly together. But [now] you don’t want to be friends anymore?” he asked.
“I don’t deserve Gareth Evans’ criticism because I’m thinking about the memories of working together for so long.”
The premier then tried to lighten the mood by adding he was “just joking” but curtly added that “for some of it…I’m not joking, it’s real.”

Dam foes ‘stay strong’

A man looks over a river in Koh Kong

Supporters of deported environmentalist Alex Gonzalez-Davidson yesterday lamented the Spaniard’s departure while pledging to continue to resist the planned Stung Cheay Areng hydropower dam.
Gonzalez-Davidson had long opposed the dam’s construction and had drawn the ire of the authorities by galvanising local opposition. He was deported on Monday evening after being detained with fellow Mother Nature co-founder San Mala in central Phnom Penh.
Hoeung Pov, 32, a headman in the Areng community, said life would prove more difficult now that Gonzalez-Davidson had been forced to leave the country, as he had been a much-needed source of information.
“We don’t get much information about the outside world,” he said. “At first, Alex learned from us about our lives here, but then he showed us the importance of nature and natural resources. Since then, we started to love nature even more.
“Alex was a connection for us with the outside world, to help us spread information and receive information. We’re sad that he has left, but we’re also determined to stay strong to oppose the plans for building the dam,” he added.
Pov and other villagers said they believe the motive for Khmer-speaking Gonzalez-Davidson’s deportation was his ability to act as a conduit between the villagers, activists, government and media.
“I think the government was concerned that Alex had more knowledge [than us] and connected us to people in other countries to help us fight them.”

The battle to save a valley

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Hun Sen for the first time publicly said the Cheay Areng dam, which would flood about 9,500 hectares and displace more than 1,300 ethnic minority Chorng people, would not be built under this government, a position he had reportedly earlier voiced to opposition leader Sam Rainsy.

Internal Funcinpec woes still mounting [Nhiek Bun Chhay led Funcinpec Party for two terms and the party's seats were reduced from 26 to 3 seats, and then to zero seat at the 2013 election, so it's time for him to go for good]

Tensions in the upper echelons of the royalist Funcinpec party edged ever closer to boiling over yesterday with Nhek Bun Chhay – long one of the party’s most influential figures – accusing newly returned president Prince Norodom Ranariddh of dismantling the party’s leadership and stacking it with loyalists.
While avowing that he was not against Ranariddh, second deputy president Bun Chhay said yesterday that the Prince’s alleged decision to disband the party’s central and permanent committees and replace them almost entirely with his own allies ran counter to the principle of reunification under which Ranariddh was invited back to Funcinpec after his ouster in 2006.
“I and [first deputy president] Princess [Norodom] Arun Rasmey have invited Samdech Krom Preah [Ranariddh] back to reunite royalist Sihanoukists, but when the prince came, [his] arrangement of the party is contrary to that aim,” Nhek Bun Chhay said.
The purported reshuffling, he added, had been carried out without consulting him and Arun Rasmey, and had alienated provincial party leaders.
“This is the reason that’s causing problems. Most of them do not accept it,” Bun Chhay said. “Reuniting is making additions; it is not making subtractions.”
In a letter issued on Monday, Ranariddh called on Bun Chhay and Arun Rasmey to stop their opposition, and to join forces to bring the weakened Funcinpec back to national relevance.

U.S. TV show Survivor to film on Cambodia's Koh Rong Island [This is good news for Cambodian tourism, but one French "Survivor" contestant died about a year ago when they filmed the French episode on Kong Rong Island]

Give our kids a better deal 
PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- American TV reality game show Survivor, which premiered its 30th season Wednesday night in the United States, will begin shooting its next two seasons in Cambodia's tropical island resort of Koh Rong, Cambodian officials said Thursday.
The show, derived from the Swedish television series Expedition Robinson, debuted in 2000.
It maroons a group of strangers at an isolated location where they must fend for themselves, finding food, water and shelter while competing in challenges, with 1 million U.S. dollars awarded to the last person standing.
"The U.S. show Survivor will begin filming in March at Koh Rong Island off the coast of Preah Sihanouk province and currently, their crews have been preparing scenes and installing equipment on the island," Preah Sihanouk provincial governor Chhit Sokhon told Xinhua via telephone, adding that the shooting will run until July.
With recent seasons topping 13 million viewers, the governor said Survivor filming in Cambodia will greatly help attract foreign tourists to Cambodia's coastal areas.
The American version of Survivor has been shot at many locations around the world since the first season, usually favoring warm and tropical climates. The current series is being filmed in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.

Move comes a day after the controversial deportation of a Spanish anti-dam activist.

The construction of a controversial, Chinese-backed mega-dam in southwestern Cambodia will not start until at least 2018, Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday in a bid to stem growing opposition to the project according to The Associated Press.
“From now until 2018, there will be no permission to build (the dam),” said Hun Sen, whose mandate as prime minister ends in 2018. “Now I beg you to stop talking about it.”
While reports had surfaced before about the project’s suspension, Hun Sen’s statement provides public confirmation that no decision will be made on whether to proceed with the project until 2018, when the country is scheduled to hold its next national election.
Hun Sen’s comments came a day after Spanish activist Alex Gonzalez-Davidson, who had campaigned against the Chinese-backed Chhay Areng hydropower dam in Koh Kong province, was deported following the government’s refusal to renew his visa. The decision marked the first time a foreign NGO worker was prevented from entering the country in a decade.
Gonzalez-Davidson, the co-founder of the NGO Mother Nature, is a fierce critic of the project, which has also sparked concerns among the country’s opposition and local environmental organizations. Activists have warned that the 108-megawatt, $400 million dam project, which is to be built by China’s Sinohydro Corporation, would destroy one of Southeast Asia’s last great wilderness areas by clearing protected forest areas, displacing thousands of people, and threatening the breeding sites of dozens of endangered species.

Referring to Cambodia as “my country”, Alex Gonzalez-Davidson, a vocal environmental activist and Spanish national who was deported Monday, yesterday vowed to return and continue his struggle to save the Areng Valley.
“I am a Cambodian and I have been illegally exiled from my country for speaking the truth and defending our country’s natural resources,” the anti-dam activist told the Post in a Facebook message from an undisclosed location. “I will come back, that is for sure. The only thing I don’t know for sure is when.”
Gonzalez-Davidson, co-foun­der of NGO Mother Nature and a beloved figure among Cambodian environmentalists, was put on a plane to Spain via Bangkok on Monday night, after the government arrested him after first refusing to renew his visa.
While his spirits are low following his banishment, Gonzalez-Davidson said the struggle to stop a proposed Chinese-built dam in Koh Kong’s Areng Valley will continue.
“There is nothing stopping us from doing more videos and informing the Cambodian people that their ‘government’ is basically forcing our country to commit ecological suicide,” Gonzalez-Davidson said, referring to the planned Cheay Areng dam.

Heng Reaksmey, VOA Khmer 26 February 2015 PHNOM PENH—
Cambodian officials in eastern Ratanakiri province have deported four more Montagnards back to Vietnam despite protests from rights groups who say asylum claims were ignored.
Provincial spokesman Moeung Sineat Wednesday told VOA's Khmer service that they were illegal immigrants found hiding in the jungle and Cambodia has a right to send them back. 
“Generally if they entered Cambodia illegally we have to cooperate with Vietnam and send them back,” he said.
The Montagnards, many of whom are Protestant, are indigenous to the highlands of Vietnam, where they have long claimed persecution for their religious beliefs and aid of U.S. troops during the Vietnam War.
Chhay Thy, human rights coordinator for the group Adhoc in Ratanakiri province, sharply criticized the deportations.
“Cambodian authorities deported them without doing proper interviews to find out their reasons for escaping. We see that this is a violation of their rights as asylum seekers and no respect [has been given] to the convention on refugees.”

An illegal logging camp in the Cardamom Mountains in Koh Kong Province, Cambodia
Cambodia has one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world, third to only Nigeria and Vietnam, according to a 2005 report conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).[1]

Cambodia's primary rainforest cover fell dramatically from over 70% in 1970 at the end of the Vietnam War to just 3.1% in 2007.[2] Deforestation is accelerating at an alarming rate, with overall rate of total forest loss at nearly 75% since the end of the 1990s. In total, Cambodia lost 25,000 square kilometres of forest between 1990 and 2005, 3,340 square kilometres of which was primary forest. As of 2007, less than 3,220 square kilometres of primary forest remain, with the result that the future sustainability of Cambodia's forest reserves is under severe threat.[3]

According to a 2015 report, U.K. environmental rights group Global Witness places Cambodian timber magnate Try Pheap at the center of a large illegal logging enterprise driving Cambodia's rarest tree species to the brink of extinction. The report concludes that the operation of the illegal logging is being done with the collusion of government and military officials with virtually all of the illegally cut and transported wood going to China[4]

Adviser roles allotted to revamped royalists

A Funcinpec party spokesman announced yesterday that more than 20 senior party officials have been appointed as advisers to the government at the request of newly returned party leader Prince Norodom Ranariddh.
Spokesman Nhep Bun Chin, himself one of the 24 reported appointees, said that Prime Minister Hun Sen had accepted Ranariddh’s proposal to award the 24 party members with positions equivalent to under-secretary of state and higher. Three government spokespeople, however, said yesterday that they had no knowledge of the appointments.
“These appointments are in the tradition of partnership between the Cambodian People’s Party and Funcinpec party,” Bun Chin said. “Samdech Techo [Hun Sen] sees that those officials have experience in serving the royal government, and have enough experience to serve the nation.”
Funcinpec won the country’s first democratic elections, but more recent elections have been less kind, with the royalists failing to win a single parliamentary seat in the 2013 national elections – a defeat that Bun Chin called “disgraceful”.
Opposition party spokesman Yim Sovann yesterday said the reported appointments were “politically motivated to prolong Funcinpec’s life” after its precipitous fall.

Cambodia’s Hun Sen Defends Deportation of Spanish Activist [Hun Sen got shares in the Areng Dam construction because the dam will be constructed by one of his cronies, Senator Lao Meng Khin]

The proposed site of the Chhay Areng Dam in Koh Kong province, April 16, 2012.
Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday defended his government’s decision to deport a Spanish environmentalist who had led a campaign against a controversial dam project, though he reiterated a pledge that the dam would not be built under his watch.

Alejandro Gonzalez-Davidson, director of the NGO Mother Nature Cambodia, was put on a plane to Thailand Monday night—three days after his visa had expired—and placed on a black list that may prevent his return to the country, despite appeals from opposition politicians and civil society.

Speaking during an event to mark Clean Cities Day, Hun Sen criticized the Spanish activist for setting up road blocks with local villagers that prevented officials from traveling in Koh Kong province, where the Chhay Areng hydropower dam project is located.

“It was too much—he dared to detain government officials from conducting impact studies,” Hun Sen said, comparing the incident to an act of insurrection by Gonzalez-Davidson and Mother Nature.

“If you want to establish an autonomous zone, please go ahead. I will deploy BM21 [rocket launchers]. I will attack you because we just upgraded to new versions of BM21s.”
