The victims of this strategy included the Khmer Rouge in the years after the first national election in 1993, and the Buddhist Liberal Democratic Party (BLDP) or Son Sann Party was also separated into part within Mr Eang Mouly's group and Mr. Kem Sokha's group, which experienced their first significant tenure in politics by taking Mr Eang Mouly's group into CPP for second election in 1998. Undoubtedly, Mr. Kem Sokha has always been looking for the chance for payback until now.


International community calls for Kem Sokha's release

International community calls for Kem Sokha's release
01Jan06--Cambodian human rights advocate Kem Sokha steadily receives the international community's support for his release after he was arrested last week on charges of defamatory remarks against the Cambodian government. Although the organizers claimed that the handwritten remarks did not come from them and that the banners were put down after they took notice, Sokha and another activist Yeng Virak, Director of the Community Legal Education Center, were arrested by the Cambodian police on 31 December 2005. Kem Sokha is the executive director of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights. He had been elected as a member of the National Assembly and Senator, respectively, and used to head the human rights committees of both. The Working Group for an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism affirms the international community's call for the release of Kem Sokha and others. The Working Group is an informal coalition of individuals and groups working with ASEAN governments and civil society towards the establishment of an intergovernmental human rights mechanism in Southeast Asia. It is organized into national working groups composed of representatives of government institutions, parliamentary human rights committees, academe, and non-government organizations. Kem Sokha is the Chair of the Cambodian Working Group for an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism.

Cambodian parliament fires opposition vice president Kem Sokha from parliament
Cambodian parliament fires opposition vice president Kem Sokha from parliament The National Assembly voted on Friday to remove opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) vice president Kem Sokha from the post of the parliament's first vice president after a proposal from a majority of the lawmakers. Licadho, a Cambodian human rights NGO, said Friday that Sokha was "removed as first vice president of Cambodia's National Assembly in a vote passed unanimously by all 68 ruling party lawmakers following a walkout by CNRP lawmakers" in the morning. "His Excellency Kem Sokha had used his position as the first vice president of the National Assembly to slander and attack the royal government, and to incite people to oppose the royal government and the Cambodian People's Party, both inside and outside the country", Hor Namhong told the diplomats. The stripping of Mr Kem Sokha's legislative post is the latest salvo by the long-ruling CPP that suggests its political deal with the increasingly popular CNRP for a "new culture of dialogue" has collapsed. It followed a petition lodged by hundreds of CPP supporters, who held a rally on Monday calling for Kem Sokha's removal.
