The Phnom Penh Municipal Court will hear the cases of 150 people including former leaders and supporters of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) on November 25-26 on charges of “attack”, “plotting”, and “incitement”.

The charges are in relation to their pledge of support for the return of former self-exiled CNRP leader Sam Rainsy to Cambodia on November 9 last year.

Suong Chan Thorn, the lawyer representing the government, said the court will first hear a case against nine people charged with “attack”. Named in this case are CNRP leaders Rainsy, Eng Chhai Eang and Mu Sochua.

The court will hear cases against 114 others on November 26 on charges of “plotting” and “ incitement”.

Outrage over eight US lawmakers’ bid for sanctions against Cambodia

Ben Sokhean / Khmer Times, November 23, 2020

The government and National Assembly have strongly hit back at eight United States legislators who are lobbying their government to impose sanctions under the Global Magnitsky Act against senior leaders of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party over alleged “deterioration” of human rights and democracy in the Kingdom.

The reaction comes after eight US senators and members of congress last Monday sent a joint letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, urging the State Department to address the “alarming deterioration” of human rights protection and democratic rule in Cambodia.

Ministry of Justice spokesman Chin Malin yesterday called the accusation made by US legislators in the letter to Pompeo as “baseless”.
 
“I think it is a baseless accusation. They only use democracy and human rights as an excuse to cover up the crimes of former opposition activists,” he said. “They keep accusing the authorities or the courts of not being independent but did not provide concrete evidence or legal basis to exculpate the accused,” he added. “But Cambodian authorities have strong evidence against the accused.”

Onestudent died at the scene and eight were injured in a traffic accident on Monday morning in Khsach Kandal district’s Prek Tameak commune, Kandal.

Khsach Kandal District deputy police chief Nov Sokhorn said on November 23 the deceased is a 20-year-old male student. The eight injured are garment factory workers that include a pregnant woman and a driver assistant.

Sokhorn said the blame falls on the driver of a brick lorry who was careless.

Witnesses told police the accident happened around 6am. The worker truck was parked on a sidewalk waiting for garment factory workers when the white Hyundai lorry carrying bricks hit it. The driver of the lorry, who was identified as Chhoeun Vandy, 25, is alleged to have been driving at high speed.

Phnom Penh municipal governor Khuong Sreng has alleged that the recently ended strikes by rubbish collectors in the capital were politically motivated.

The work shutdown at Cintri (Cambodia) Ltd, the rubbish company that operates collection in Phnom Penh, took place in early October and lasted 13 days after employees made contract demands. The situation was resolved on October 14.

Sreng made the remarks while leading Phnom Penh Municipal Hall officials on a visit to Prek Pnov and Russey Keo districts on November 19.

“The problem of rubbish congestion is, it is a political issue. It is not a problem with the workers because of seniority pay, but a political issue with politicians behind it,” he said, without elaborating or identify any politicians or parties.

Rice prices fall in Battambang

Publication date 23 November 2020 | 21:55 ICT

The price of rice in Battambang province has dropped by as much as 25 per cent in recent days, pushed down by, among other things, recent flooding and wind that have lowered the grain’s quality, as well as a lack of investment by the private sector.

Battambang provincial governor Nguon Ratanak told The Post on November 23 the fact that farmers had flocked to harvest at the same time while rice millers could not afford to buy it timely also led to the plummeting price.

He said however the price decrease remained at acceptable levels because the Phka Romduol rice variety still cost one million riel ($250) per tonne.

“This price of rice is falling because its quality is not yet up to an acceptable level. After the past floods, some rice leaned into the water and became black. So, we speak about the price falling, and we forget about its quality. Its quality also affects the price.

The groups also acknowledged the NA, the government and the finance ministry for providing the opportunity and welcoming opinions on the policy framework t make the draft law as comprehensive and participatory as possible.

Police are searching for suspects who allegedly shot to death a So Nguon Group security guard and seriously injured another in Kampot province on November 18.

Provincial police chief Mao Chanmathurith told The Post on November 22 that after the shooting, police cordoned off the forest near the company owner's plantation where the incident took place and arrested two gunmen on the night of November 19.

He said police are investigating others who might be involved and searching for the ringleader, who they said was probably hiding in the forest.

He identified the arrested as residents aged 21 to 23 from Prey Peay village in Chhouk district’s Trapaing Phlaing commune.

“According to the suspects, more than 10 people were involved in the shooting including . . . the ringleader. This person and his accomplices are believed to be hiding in the forest with weapons,” he said.

Police took back at least 13 addicts to the Keo Phos drug rehabilitation centre in Preah Sihanouk province by November 22 after more than 50 people broke out and fled from the centre on the night of November 20.

“For those who escaped from the centre, they did not make a mistake because they are victims of drugs too,” Stung Hav district police chief Ros Key said on November 22.

“The director of the centre said he sent the names of the remaining people to their guardians who will send them back to the centre sooner or later,” he added.

According to Key, drug addicted people are usually sent to the Kraing Thnong Rehabilitation Centre in Phnom Penh. The reason these people escaped was they were not used to living in a new location. They removed a window and then climbed over the fence.

Cambodia has drawn global accolades for its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, with a new report finding that the Kingdom has controlled the pandemic better than any other country in Asia.

Dr Takeshi Kasai, director of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Western Pacific region, applauded Cambodia’s response to the health crisis, while the new report ranked Cambodia as third out of all the nations in the world in its control of the pandemic.

“Collective health is based on strong leadership and individual actions. I commend Cambodia for its decisive action to manage the cluster linked to the 3 Nov diplomatic visit, and the government’s leaders for modelling good public health practices,” Kasai tweeted on November 20, referring to the November 3 visit of Covid-19-positive Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto.

The new ranking report, which was published by the Economic Prospective Bureau of the Republic of Senegal, compared Cambodia’s Covid-19 data against that provided to the WHO by 166 global nations, according to Ministry of Health spokeswoman Or Vandine on November 22.

Authorities in Koh Kong province are searching for the individuals who set up border posts on nearly 200ha of protected forest, with officials and activists claiming that powerful tycoons had hired local people to encroach on the land.

On Sothearith, governor of Koh Kong’s Thma Bang district, told The Post on November 22 that after protected forest land was allocated to people who had lived in the district’s Russey Chrum commune for many years, some people came in to claim the conservation areas with the intent to sell the land to businessmen.

“This land is in a protected area, not in an allocated area. As the first conclusion, the encroachment on the land was by the local people. They heard the government was allocating the land and that there are people willing to buy land in the area,” Sothearith said.

According to Sothearith, the authorities are working to identify these individuals so they can arrest and send them to court. He added those people were secretly setting up border post on the land at night.

A government official said on November 22 that at least 110 garment factories had closed in the first nine months of the year and left more than 55,000 workers without jobs – but union leaders worry those numbers could be much higher.

Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training undersecretary of state Ngoy Rith said as of early September, 111 factories had closed in the garment, footwear and travel product sectors. He added the number of closures was similar to the first nine months of last year, when 110 factories closed.

“These closures have left 55,174 workers jobless. This job loss increased somewhat from the same period last year, which saw 53,226 workers laid off,” he said.

Rith said the government had been effective in introducing measures to keep factories open in one of the most important sectors of the Cambodian economy. He added that the global market for garment products had been virtually shut down by the Covid-19 pandemic and other factors.

The Ministry of Environment has called on communities on the Tonle Sap Lake to join a weeklong clean-up campaign to reduce the plastic waste and pollution that is destroying the ecology and biodiversity of one of the world’s most productive freshwater fisheries.

Environment ministry spokesman Neth Pheaktra on November 22 announced the opening of National Sanitation Day and the Tonle Sap Festival 2020 under the theme “Good sanitation, environment, good community health in Siem Reap”. The campaign will continue until November 28.

He urged community members who live on the Tonle Sap in Siem Reap, Kampong Thom, Kampong Chhnang, Pursat and Battambang provinces to stop throwing rubbish in the lake and to help reduce pollution, especially plastic waste.

“The Tonle Sap Lake was polluted by plastics from community members who live on it and by the plastics that people throw into various creeks and rivers that flow into the lake,” Pheaktra said.

King Norodom Sihamoni has promulgated a long-awaited gambling law that aims to create jobs, boost the economy and bolster tourism as well as establish safeguards against money laundering and corruption.

The law, which will dictate how casinos and gambling operators conduct business, has 12 chapters and 97 articles. It was passed by the National Assembly on October 5 and endorsed by the Senate on October 26.

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport is set to move from its current location near Wat Phnom in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district to Street 598 in Russey Keo district’s Chraing Chamreh II commune in January.

Ministry cabinet director Kong Vimean told The Post on November 22 the new building is 95 per cent complete, after its construction broke ground in May last year. Public works minister Sun Chanthol led his delegates on November 19 to check the progress on the construction.

Vimean said the ministry plans to invite Prime Minister Hun Sen to preside over the inauguration ceremony.

The old headquarters, which he said was cramped, will be given to the Ministry of Mines and Energy. The new building, he added, will provide suitable space for officials but declined to reveal the cost.

The new building has drawn some criticism on social media, with some Facebook users alleging that it did not follow a Khmer architectural pattern.
