Prince Norodom Ranariddh told VOA in an exclusive interview from Paris, France that he does not recognize the decision of the FUNCINPEC party to remove him from the position of the party president but gives his blessings to those who set him free.
In a phone interview immediately after his removal, Prince Ranariddh says that he plans to file a lawsuit with the Ministry of the Interior.
Ranariddh says he does not believe the Ministry of the Interior will seek justice for him but he wants to show the public that it can not find justice even for someone like him not to mention the ordinary people.
The prince also reveals that he is forming a new party under his name, the "Norodom Ranariddh Party" in time to participate in the local election to be held in April 2007.
