UPDATE: Kem Sokha "safe" following attempted arrest

Post Staff


UPDATE (3:10pm): Cambodia National Rescue Party acting president Kem Sokha is in a “safe place”, according to an opposition official, who said the party had reached out to the international community to condemn an attempt by police this morning to arrest the opposition leader.

Speaking this afternoon, CNRP parliamentarian Eang Chhay Eang would not divulge the whereabouts of Sokha, only saying he was in a “safe place”.

The opposition leader is being sought by police for missing a summons to appear at Phnom Penh Municipal Court this morning.

Just after midday, armed police arrived at the CNRP’s headquarters on National Road 2 in a bid to find the acting president.

Prior to this, at about 11:30am, another contingent of officers stopped Sokha’s car on Norodom Boulevard near Boeung Keng Kang market, however the lawmaker was not inside, according to Sokha’s chief of cabinet, Muth Chanta.

Chhay Eang said the party had contacted officials at the French Embassy to denounce the actions by authorities, citing Sokha’s parliamentary immunity, which is supposed to protect him from arrest.

“He has immunity, so they cannot arrest him unless they have a warrant for his arrest, and they have to strip his immunity first,” Chhay Eang said.

PHNOM PENH — 

Political analysts and researchers are warning of the possibility of increasing violence and corruption as the government digs in its heels against a rising protest movement that was sparked by the arrests of several rights workers and an election official last week.

Ou Virak, head of the Future Forum think tank, who has also been threatened with legal action over recent comments he made about the unrest, said the suppression of freedom of speech in the Kingdom would open the door for more corruption and rights abuses, which in turn could cause public anger to explode.

“The danger is that sometimes low level people [officials] might take this opportunity to commit corruption,” he said. “The might increase the suppression [of rights]. They will increase exploitation. There will be more injustices, more nepotism. This can be a source of huge problems, while the leaders … might not be aware of this.”

“Sometimes people’s anger explodes before high-level officials are aware. To me, any such outbreak of public anger would be damaging to out country,” he added.

PHNOM PENH — 
Local elections will be held in June next year, Prime Minister Hun Sen announced in a decision signed earlier this month.

The decree, signed by Hun Sen on May 24, sets a June 4, 2017, date for the polls, which will come a year ahead of the next general election, due in 2018.

Sam Kuntheamy, head of the Neutral and Impartial Committee for Free and Fair Elections, or NICFEC, said the National Election Committee (NEC) “would be a bit rushed” to complete voter registration ahead of the vote.

The announcement comes after the deputy secretary general of the NEC, Ny Chakrya, was jailed on charges of being an accomplice to bribery over his alleged involvement a defamation case against opposition deputy leader Kem Sokha.

Rong Chhun, the former president of the Cambodian Independent Teachers Association, one of the opposition’s choices for membership of the NEC, was also recently charged with the alleged involvement in violence on Veng Sreng Boulevard in Phnom Penh during garment worker strikes in 2014.

U.S. President Barack Obama isn’t giving up on the human rights agenda in Vietnam, but it’s unclear if his visit will have any impact on the Southeast Asian country whose dismal record includes an estimated 100 or more political prisoners.

Obama on Tuesday met with a handful of human rights activists and admonished the government in an address that was televised nationally.

“Upholding these rights is not a threat to stability but actually reinforces stability and is the foundation of progress," Obama said in a speech from Hanoi’s National Convention Center that was attended by government officials and students from five universities.

“Vietnam will do it differently than the United States does,” he said. “But there are these basic principles that I think we all have to try to work on and improve.”

Obama told the audience that economic growth and human rights are intertwined.

“When there is freedom of expression and freedom of speech, and when people can share ideas and access the Internet and social media without restriction, that fuels the innovation economies need to thrive,” he said.

“That's where new ideas happen.  That's how a Facebook starts.  That's how some of our greatest companies began -- because somebody had a new idea.  It was different, and they were able to share it.”

Cambodia's first milk manufacturing plant, which aims to dominate the domestic dairy market, officially launched production operations yesterday after a ribbon-cutting ceremony held at the factory’s home in Phnom Penh SEZ.

The $23 million Angkor Dairy Factory is a joint-venture partnership between Vietnam Dairy Product Joint-Stock Co, better-known as Vinamilk, and BPC Trading Co Ltd. The joint venture, originally signed in 2013, has formed a new line of Cambodian dairy products under the Angkormilk brand name.

The 30,000 square metre facility has an annual capacity of 19 million liters of liquid milk, 64 million cups of yoghurt and 80 million cans of sweetened condensed milk.

With the launch of production, the Kingdom’s shelves will soon see the UHT milk, which is milk sterilised at ultra-high temperatures, sold in 220ml pouches bearing Angkormilk’s logo.

The yoghurt products come in four flavours, and the condensed milk will be marketed under two distinct brands: Best Cows and Captain. The new Angkormilk Liquid Milk for Kids, sold in small cartons, is made of infused and pasteurised milk.

Brothers craft 3D-printed prostheses for amputees

In a cramped room at the Royal University of Fine Arts, two Cambodian-American brothers are printing hands.

Their project, which kicked off last week, is using 3D printers to create prosthetic limbs for 25 amputees in Siem Reap and Preah Vihear provinces. All but two are victims of unexploded ordnance (UXO).

The brothers, Ki Chong, 29, and Ki How Tran, 25, founded Arc Hub, Cambodia’s first 3D printing firm in 2013, but this is the first time they have built prosthetics.

They’re working in partnership with the Victoria Hand Project (VHP), a Canadian non-profit that has provided 3D-printed prosthetic hands to amputees in Guatemala, Ecuador, Nepal and Haiti since 2012.

Joshua Coutts, a VHP engineer, will come to Cambodia next month to train clinic doctors in Preah Vihear and Siem Reap in fitting patients with the prosthetics.

“From an engineering perspective, you always face difficulties with what each region’s preferences are. Whether it be more cosmetic over function, or more function over cosmetics,” he said via email.

According to the Ki brothers, amputees in Cambodia often worry about prosthetics appearing strange and unnatural. “It’s a huge issue here,” said Tran.

Lawyers for CNRP acting president Kem Sokha have informed the Phnom Penh Municipal Court that he plans to ignore a second summons to testify today in relation to “prostitution” allegations involving an alleged mistress.

Sokha was due to appear this morning for a second time after ignoring a May 17 summons in relation to the same matter. He also declined to attend after being summonsed on May 11 in relation to a separate defamation case.

In a letter to the court, Sokha’s lawyers said his presence was not necessary as no suspects had been officially charged in the case.

“The prosecutor has not questioned any defendant or charged any suspect yet. So, Mr Kem Sokha understands that his immunity and his work as a lawmaker is more important than going to clarify in court,” defence lawyer Sam Sokong said.

The government’s emergency campaign to distribute water to some 2.5 million people affected by drought is over, Prime Minister Hun Sen declared yesterday, though for development partners and humanitarian groups, drought relief efforts continue.

The announcement, which came just three days after the premier took to Facebook calling for water distribution efforts to continue, was delivered at a graduation ceremony in Phnom Penh.

“It’s the end of the big campaign, but it’s not the end of distributing water to the areas that lack water. We have to continue in those areas,” he said, adding that this year proved to be a “lesson” to the government for future drought planning.

“We’ve never experienced a shortage of water [like this] . . . We have never held a campaign to distribute water like this,” he continued.

The premier went on to say that improvements to wells and other water infrastructure must continue. Separately, he said the Water Festival’s boat race “must” occur this year after last year’s suspension.

The government’s campaign began on April 26, and 500 million riel (about $125,000) was budgeted for the nearly one-month operation. The National Committee for Disaster Management could not be reached yesterday to provide an update on how many people still face water shortages.

The American coffee franchise giant Starbucks opened its second outlet in Cambodia at Aeon Mall yesterday.

Locally licenced as Coffee Concepts Cambodia Ltd, this opening comes less than six months after its first store made its debut at the Phnom Penh International Airport last December.

While the first launch caused much fanfare, the Aeon location marks the first publicly accessible location. “Since our first store is in the airport terminal, all the people from outside could not get in,” said Por Lim, Starbucks' general manager.

Despite its limited access, he said Starbucks has grown in reputation over the past several months, cementing the brand and assuring long-term investment.

The next Starbucks location is scheduled to open in October in the heavily saturated cafe mecca of the Boeung Keng Kang district of Phnom Penh. Further expansions are dependent on brand pick-up, he said.

Daniel Li, a local retail expert, predicts that the new Starbucks will mostly attract teenagers and young adults and that its unique hours of 7am until 10pm could attract a different crowd.

Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday revealed a late July date for the 2018 national election while urging authorities to speed up the process of registering more than 2 million people still lacking an ID card ahead of next year’s commune elections.

Hun Sen told 2,000 graduates at the National Institute of Education in Phnom Penh the national poll would take place on July 22, 2018. He also demanded that the new, electronic voter lists be transparent, lest his opposition opponents be given a reason to reject the election results.

Referring to 2013’s contested election, the prime minister said the problem of about 1.5 million names missing from the voting register had only partially been resolved in the three years since, with just 200,000 of those now on the rolls.

“All actors can start preparing and hope there is no reason to reject the result of the election and no reason to accuse us of losing millions of names from voter lists … We all have to ensure transparency and guarantee a procedure of democracy,” he said. But opposition leader Sam Rainsy has already begun to question the credibility of the freshly announced elections.

Imprisoned CNRP lawmaker Um Sam An – accused of committing “incitement” by claiming the government ceded territory to Vietnam – yesterday availed himself of his right to silence during questioning by a judge, his lawyer said.

Sam An, who last year spearheaded a campaign to draw attention to alleged Vietnamese encroachment, was grilled by Phnom Penh Municipal Court investigating judge Top Chhun Heng for one hour, said his attorney Sam Sokong.

“He sat in front of the judge, two court clerks and two of his lawyers but he declined all questions,” Sokong said. “He said his arrest was against the constitution as the parliament has not stripped him of his immunity.”

Sam An would answer questions only if parliament voted to remove his immunity, he said.

Sam An, arrested in April, faces a maximum five-year term.

Located ten kilometres from Phnom Penh, Takhmao city has largely been ignored by real estate developers for many years because of a widely held perception of it being only a passing area.

However, the construction of many commercial centres and residential houses has underpinned Takhmao’s budding potential since the start of this year.

Nget Piseth, assistant CEO of Borey New World, told Post Property that his company will soon start construction on a 10-hectare plot of land in the city, with selling to take place concurrently.

The houses in this project will be priced similarly to other houses of Borey New World around Phnom Penh.

Additionally, Oknha Tang Koung, who plans to invest $100 million in developing a commercial centre and high-end residences, said his project concentrates wholly on houses and a shopping mall, implying a mixed-use development that has now begun construction.

Koung, like Piseth, did not state the reason behind his Takhmao investment, simply saying, “My company has a project, and we see the high potential of this city which is the main decision for us to invest here.”

An opposition commune representative, who spoke out about politically motivated harassment during a petition drive calling for the release of 29 men and women identified by a rights group as political prisoners, was arrested on Tuesday evening.

Doung Thon, 54, who was collecting thumbprints in Kampot’s Chhouk district to send to the King, was held overnight at Trapaing Phlaing commune police station. He was subsequently released from police custody yesterday evening after signing a contract drafted by police.

“They prohibited me from collecting thumbprints, and I signed an agreement to stop collecting. If I do it again, they will probably arrest me, so I will stop,” Thon said.

“For party affairs, they do not prohibit these, but said I must not go beyond the scope, such as wearing a black shirt [as part of ‘Black Monday’ protests].”

Kampot police chief Mao Chanmakthurith said the police took action because a few people had submitted a complaint, stating they were “forced” to give their thumbprints.

“There were people who came and asked them for a thumbprint . . . but when they returned home, their relatives asked about it and advised them not to give their thumbprint away like that,” he said. “Therefore, they got scared and they decided to file a complaint to police.”

Former deputy governor of Banteay Meanchey province Tour Theantoeu was released on bail on Monday, a week after being handed a year’s prison sentence for a fraud perpetrated in 2004.

Spokesman for Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court Phann Vanroth confirmed Theantoeu’s release yesterday, reportedly to attend a wedding. Vanroth said Theantoeu has a right to appeal the verdict, in which case he may also apply for bail.

Legal expert Sok Sam Oeun said Vanroth was within his rights. “In practice, no one gets bail after being convicted. But it’s not illegal, it’s just a rare case which almost never happens in Cambodia,” he said.

According to Vanroth, the plaintiff, who he declined to name, has demanded 270,000 Thai baht (about $7,500) in compensation, which will be held by the court as bail until a final verdict is reached.

The chief of Theantoeu’s home commune confirmed that his daughter is due to get married soon.

DERAILMENT OF THE ELECTION PROCESS IN CAMBODIA

DERAILMENT OF THE ELECTION PROCESS IN CAMBODIA

Announcing dates for voting days for the commune and national elections scheduled for 2017 and 2018 respectively, is not enough to ensure that those elections would be credible and acceptable for the Cambodian people and the international community.

Worse, in light of the current political repression, such an announcement could be misleading in that it may divert attention from what the Hun Sen government has been actively doing over the last twelve months in order to manipulate those elections in a way to secure victory for the ruling CPP in spite of its fast declining popularity.

Taking full advantage of its control over the Judiciary, which it blatantly uses as a tool for political repression, the government gets an increasing number of its opponents and critics – including leaders and members of the civil society – arrested and jailed on fallacious charges.

Despite making up half of the student population, only 14% of students in information technology in 2010 were female. Most of these women chose the subject without the clear end goal of working in the sector.


WASHINGTON —

Despite the growth of Cambodia’s tech industry, few women have joined the field. Longtime Cambodian tech observer Sok Sikieng says that although more women have joined the profession in recent years, there remain significant factors hindering women from reaching their tech potential.

Sikieng, a tech ambassador and lecturer of information technology at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, told the Hello VOA (Khmer) radio program last week that the increase in women working in the technology sector has not encouraged more young women to study tech-related subjects at universities.

“In the last few years, there was a noticeably higher number of Cambodian women tech workers, who have started an association. They total around 70, 80 people, and help each other to bring in more women into the field. And yet, today, we don’t see a marked increase in female students in tech.”

Sand dredging licences secretly soaring

Despite the government’s vow to be more transparent with regulations and the issuing of sand-dredging licences, the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) has granted nearly 70 new such licences without holding public auctions or requiring companies to disclose environmental impact assessments (EIA) results to the public, according to data from the ministry.

As part of the reforms following a sand-dredging clampdown in March of last year, when the MME announced that it would rein in the sector, numerous sand-dredging licences have continued to be issued.

While the most transparent public auction was held last June to issue four licences for dredging the Mekong and Tonle Bassac rivers, since then a total of 49 licences were awarded by the end of 2015 and 20 more during the first quarter of 2016 – bringing the nationwide total to 84, said Dith Tina, secretary of state at the Ministry of Mines and Energy.

Tina maintained that although many new licences have been issued, the ministry has stepped-up its effort to answer the concerns of villagers affected by sand dredging, using a riverbank collapse that occurred earlier this month as an example.

After the collapse in the Koh Thom district of Kandal, caused by the Lim Kao ChingGroup, the MME hosted a public forum attended by 400 villagers across eight different communes.

“After the public forum, the dredging boundary [was] marked on the river and people can see if the company dredges outside the boundary and we have a hotline that people can call in to report,” he said.

Koh Kong’s Southern Cardamom rangers recently rescued 77 animals bound for Phnom Penh restaurants, Wildlife Alliance (WA) revealed yesterday.

Acting on an informant’s tip, 16 WA and Forestry Administration rangers raided buildings in Sre Ambel district and found 61 turtles and tortoises, 11 monitor lizards, four civet cats and one soft-shell turtle being held alive.

A suspect escaped but the authorities know his identity and are preparing to summon him to court. He faces at least a $3,000 fine.

“For this case, the client wants the animals killed prior to being delivered to Phnom Penh restaurants and shops,” WA said in a message yesterday.

Several soft-shell turtle species living in Southeast Asia are considered endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Kandal's Fisheries Administration halted a soil-digging operation in a dried-out lake bed and ordered 30 dirt-laden trucks to be parked until further notice on Monday, the commune chief accused of inappropriately authorising the digging said yesterday.

Russey Chroy commune chief Um Chhong Sreng confirmed that fisheries officials had told him he had no right to move the soil because he did not own it. He countered that he was only following Prime Minister Hun Sen’s call on local officials to deepen ponds and waterways to help fight the record drought in the country.

“I did it to comply with Samdech’s speech,” he said by phone. “The provincial and district governors instructed each commune to check if their lakes are shallow and the need to deepen them but when I make it deeper, they say I am wrong.”

Drought exposes Angkorian temple site

Ancient Angkorian ruins previously hidden underwater have been exposed in a drying reservoir in a Thai village near the Cambodian border, the Bangkok Post reported yesterday.

The temple ruins, known by villagers as Tapieng Roun, are in Pattana village, Surin province, just north of Oddar Meanchey province in Cambodia, reported the newspaper. Surin province was historically part of the Angkorian empire and Angkorian ruins are common there.

Images of the site appear to show structures poking out from a shallow pool of water. Thailand, like the rest of the region, has been experiencing a crippling drought that scientists say is caused by a particularly powerful El Niño system.

The ruins are not a new finding, said Im Sokrithy, a senior archaeologist with the APSARA Authority in Siem Reap. The ruins, which he said are believed to be two temples representing a man and a woman, had previously been recorded by the Thai Ministry of Culture, he said.

Over the years, artefacts have disappeared from the Tapieng Roun site, likely taken by looters, the Bangkok Post reported.
