For the first time, officials from the Norodom Ranariddh party Monday (NRP) verbally attack Cambodia’s ruling party (CPP) for physically harming one of its members in Kampong Cham province.
The party has appealed to Cambodian authorities to take appropriate measures to investigate into the case and to punish those responsible for the attack.
Say Sok sustained a head wound allegedly by a member of the CCP, NRP officials confirmed Monday.
“The CPP deputy village chief grabbed the victim when the attacker wounded him”, the official added. The incident took place in Kampong Cham province, after the men argued over the distribution of CPP's gifts.
While, government spokesman Khieu Kanharith cannot be reached for comment, Hun Sen's top advisor Om Yentieng dismisses the allegations.
