On Wednesday, 7 Aug, King Norodom Sihamoni urged the ruling CPP and the opposition CNRP to solve their dispute over the election results peacefully for the sake of the nation.
 
August 9, 2013:  Soldiers in armored personnel carriers (APCs) were stationed in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Thursday 8 Aug amid persistent government warnings that the opposition’s plans to contest the preliminary results of the July 28 national election will not be tolerated. Interior Minister Sar Kheng 8 August sent a letter to CNRP President Sam Rainsy warning that protest must be within the law and violator faces arrests. 

“In the case of holding a demonstration that causes violence, destruction of national security, destruction of public property or [destruction of] privacy and public order, the leaders of the demonstration and perpetrators must be responsible before the law for other consequences taking place from this demonstration,” Kheng wrote.

“The leaders of [the] demonstration and demonstrators must respect the laws on peaceful demonstration,” the letter noted. The CNRP replies: 

“If anything happens, the government must be the first one responsible. We have seen in demonstrations across the country, if the government doesn’t provoke, there are no problems.”

“Threats and intimidation cannot solve the problem,” echoed spokesman Yim Sovann, who called demonstrations “the last choice”.

“Anyone who does anything against the law has to be held responsible,” he said. “But the Ministry of Interior must be responsible as well. The party organises a peaceful demonstration. We respect the law, we follow it…. Mr Sar Kheng should read the demonstration law again.”

 

Article 26 of the Law on Peaceful Assembly notes that damages are “the responsibility of the offender(s) and the accomplices”.

In a legal analysis issued by the International Federation of Human Rights in October 2009, shortly after the law was passed, the group notes that “accomplices” could be broadly interpreted.

“One may only hope that the organisers of the demonstrations will not be a … target of criminal suits,”

Monday 5 Aug, Sam Rainsy sent letter to Banki Mun asking United Nation be involved in investigation on election results.

GROWTH- TRADE

PHNOM PENH, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) — Cambodia’s economy is projected to grow by 7.6 percent in 2013 if there is no post-poll turbulence, Minister of Commerce Cham Prasidh said Thursday.

“The Cambodian economy has continued its high growth path and achieved 7.6 percent GDP growth last year, and is expected to grow at the same pace this year if there are no serious post-election disturbances,” he said at the opening of an industrial machinery and garment products exhibition here.
