Sam Rainsy Faces Three New Lawsuits - 2005-03-16

Opposition leader Sam Rainsy is facing three new lawsuits from three prominent businesspersons accusing him for defaming them for giving money to FUNCINPEC President Norodom Ranariddh in exchange for him to join with CPP in forming a coalition government.

Som Chandina, Sam Rainsy's lawyer, said these lawsuits are exactly the same as the two previous ones filed by FUNCINPEC and CPP.

Som Chandina noted that Mr. Sam Rainsy did not fabricate the information: he just repeated what was written in the newspapers.
