Opposition Party Ridicules PM's Spy Claim

Opposition party leader Sam Rainsy ridicules Prime Minister Hun Sen's claim that he has a spy inside the Sam Rainsy party.

Sam Rainsy's reaction came out after PM Hun Sen publicly announced over the weekend that he has a spy who has since become a lawmaker for the SRP.

Hun Sen reportedly told the cabinet meeting last Friday that SRP member Son Chhay is his spy.

Son Chhay denies the accusation saying it's the prime minister's game to put him down.

Sam Rainsy says he can handle his own party and that there's no need for anybody to worry for him.

Several political analysts say this is a game political parties play before an election.

Cambodia will hold a local election in April of next year.
