Nowadays, democracy in Cambodia is progressing strongly in a righteous direction amidst challenges and attempts staged by a number of ill-will circles who are in their nature fake democrats. Under the banner of Democracy and Human Rights, those people have steadily hindered the execution of the National Constitution, do not respect the will of the people who are owners of the vote, but to make their best to destroy the effectiveness of the laws, to create confusion between democracy and anarchy and to voice their saying that “ Democracy is to act like them “. Obviously, when the National Assembly voted to exempt rights and immunity of two assembly members from the Sam Rainsy’s Party, one of them has defamed Samdech Techo HUN SEN, the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, and the other has looked down 22 High Ranking Military Officers for their graduation from the Military Academy of Vietnam, they have made public confused by their shouting that “ Steps taken by the National Assembly has brought negative impact to democracy and freedom of speeches in Cambodia “. Moreover, they have raised their voice overseas the so-called “ The step back of democracy in Cambodia “ to pool foreign assistance and to punish Cambodia. But, the false allegation failed, they could cheat only those who do not know the truth.
The two assembly members are exempted from their rights and immunity based on the suggestion submitted by the Judicial Institution, who has the full power in taking legal steps to settle the two plaintiffs. The National Assembly procedure is by laws and abided by the internal rules and every line of its existing rules of procedures. The truth is the misbehavior of the two persons – they committed severe offensive acts, abused the legitimate rights and honor of the others – which have caused the reasons of the plaintiffs; hence they should be responsible of their acts and should not escape from any application of laws.
It should note that the opposition party has continuously misinterpreted that there is no respect of laws in Cambodia, but when there is an application of laws addressing such misconduct and the abuse of law, they contradictorily voiced the shouting that there is no democracy. It is therefore, for them, laws are only for others to implement, but not for them to apply. The truth could not confuse the public, who sees visibly that democracy and the state of laws in Cambodia are progressing in a right track and no one could divert the righteous direction.
Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HUN SEN clearly proclaimed that democracy should be accorded by the state of laws; and without discrimination, if anyone member of the national assembly commits not by laws, the court is to judge, and for expatriates, there are also laws relating to them. One who commits offensive to the laws of the Kingdom of Cambodia, there are laws to judge him/her. We are strengthening democracy and the state of law, and not to let democracy in Cambodia be transformed into anarchy.
