Sam Rainsy Criticizes Government's Promise to Fight Corruption - 2004-09-13

Opposition leader Mr. Sam Rainsy calls the promise the Cambodian government has made to the donor countries to fight corruption a deceitful one.

He said the government has made the same promise to the Cambodian people and the international community for over a decade but has not accomplished anything in the fight against corruption. Mr. Rainsy claims corruption is getting worse in Cambodia.

Donor countries recently told Cambodia that it has to fight corruption seriously in order to receive further aid.

In response, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen promised to combat the problem by sacking any corrupt officials.
