(Phnom Penh): On Friday, opposition party’s lawmakers requested Kem Sokha, new CNRP president, to pay their last respect to late Samdech Vibol Panha Sok An sometime soon.
Son Chhay, CNRP’s lawmaker, talked to reporters outside Prey Sar prison while other lawmakers and he were visiting defendants who were CNRP’s officials and activists on March 17, 2017. He will request CNRP President Kem Sokha to lead CNRP officials and to pay their last respect to late Samdech Vibol Panha Sok An sometime soon, he said.
Son Chhay continued that purposes of the request to share condolences with the family of Samdech Vibol Panha are to coordinate the political situation between both parties and to make it better again. The situation regarding the accusation of the lawmakers would be better, he said. Samdach PM would reduce their sentences and he [Son Chhay] will make a request to the King during the Khmer New Year in the future because if they are still in detention, there would be no benefit for the nation and it could useless for the Party [CPP], he added.
