Sourn Serey Ratha, the founder and former president of the Khmer Power Party, who is serving a five-year prison sentence for a Facebook post criticising Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Royal Army of Cambodia, has apologised in the hope of being released.

The apology, seeking forgiveness, was addressed to the premier and all military officers and soldiers, and was posted on Tuesday on his Facebook page.

“I would like to ask Samdech Techo [Hun Sen], the highest five-star general, to acquit me so that I can reunite with my family, take care of my old mother, my young children, and become a good father, husband and citizen,” he said.

In August last year, Ratha was sentenced to five years in prison for insulting the country’s military in his Facebook’s post.

Referring to a border skirm-ish between Cambodia and Laos, he said the conflict would only harm soldiers, while generals could safely enjoy their “money” and “girls”.

In March this year, the Supreme Court rejected his bail request. He had claimed his post did not disrupt public security or cause chaos in society.

He also based his request on the fact that both his mother and father-in-law were seriously ill while his wife had to care for their two children alone.

It is time for Hun Sen to let all political prisoners go. It is time to show the world of khmers love khmers, khmers for Khmers. Try to encourage all political leaders to work together as a team. E.g look at Chinese 1.4 billions and Vietnamese almost 100 millions, why are they getting bigger all the time? Because they allowed their educated ones to help to develop their country in the most prestigious way. However, they would encourage all the little ones like Laos and Cambodia to do the opposite, that is to create one problem after another for ethnic cleansing. E.g how they used VC Vietnamese to assist in killing khmers, and then they will turn on Vietnamese the last minute, which is already happening. Million of Chinese already moving in to resettle around Hanoi City and is already used their currency. The same to Cambodia at Sihanoukvil, to causing much trouble to them.

Right now, Vietnamese people are going through hell, just like Cambodians and they are asking US and EU for help to rescue them from the Chinese communist iron grip. If not, by 2020, all the little ones (Laos, Burma, Cambodian and Vietnam) will be part of Chinese’s province. Because Chinese aim is to conquer the whole Southeast Asia. By using all kinds of evil tactics and tricks known as ‘killing two birds with one stone’, e.g by using their 1) whores to win all wars, 2) to work as spies, that is pretending to be khmers but for their national interest, to create all kinds of problems for Khmers to continue to kill khmers and once it is done, they will turn on Vietnamese. At first they would say to Vietnamese that Vietnamese can have it all, e.g taking over Laos Burma and Cambodia, but not. Now, they turn on Vietnamese killing them one by one. Just like they did to Cambodians. Right now, Chinese control everything from top to bottom levels of government. Almost all leaders around Southeast Asia are under their controlled e,g being kidnaped and asked for ransom.

What to do.
Hun Sen needs to let all political prisoners go and to stop playing their game, but to do the opposite e.g to encourage all educated ones to work together as a team. It is time to fight back or else khmers no more by 2020. If Chinese could do this to Vietnamese, they can do it to anyone else around the world. They lied, cheated, robbed and killed her and her people known as ‘killing two birds with one stone’. It is time to say to Chinese and Vietnamese to piss off, and that Cambodia belongs to Cambodians. Let them all go home, back to their country. Try to join with Japanese and ask them to help to rebuild her country and her people. Because anyone sided with Chinese are doomed. Because they have too many mouths to feed 1.4 billion!. Verse Vietnamese 100 millions. Verse Cambodians 15 millions but still poor as. Why? Because they robbed from the little ones. E.g Vietnamese collected billions $ from Cambodia to pay of their debt, like leasing Angkor watt and other national heritage for 99 years, from selling khmers’ timbers, sucking up everything of her etc. it is Vietnamese who khmers billions but they manipulated by saying liberation rather then invasion. Without khmers help Vietnam would be no more. But again khmers been cheated by the communists Chinese and Vietnamese.
