NGOs Officials' Reaction to Sam Rainsy's Confession

Opposition party's president Sam Rainsy's confession to wrongdoing sparks a suspicion among the civil societies officials and politicians.

They are not sure whether this confession is Mr. Sam Rainsy's admission of his mistakes or a political strategy. These officials believe that Mr. Sam Rainsy's position has softened, and that he acknowledges his mistakes for the purpose of returning to Cambodia.

However he will not be arrested, and he will get his immunity back. Mr. Hang Puthea, director of Neutral and Impartial Committee for Free and Fair Election in Cambodia (NECFEC) declines to make comments on Mr. Sam Rainsy's confession, but he says that he is surprised and that politicians always use different strategies in their parties because they want the people's votes.

Licadho's director Ms. Pung Chhiv Kek says that it is difficult to understand politicians.
