PHNOM PENH, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) — China is going to build a monument for two Chinese U.N. peacekeeping soldiers killed in a blast in Cambodia’s Cheung Prey district in Kampong Cham province on May 21, 1993.
Chinese Minister of Civil Affairs Li Liguo on Friday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Cambodian Secretary of State for Defense Moeung Samphan under the presence of Cambodian Defense Minister Tea Banh towards the construction of the monument.
“Under the MoU, China will construct a monument for its deceased peacekeeping soldiers in Cheung Prey district in eastern Kampong Cham province,” Major Gen. Phat Vibolsopheak, chief of the international relations department at Cambodian Defense Ministry, told reporters after the signing ceremony.
“Cambodia will facilitate in the process of the construction and maintain and protect the planned monument,” he said.
A midnight explosion happened on May 21, 1993 and killed Chen Zhiguo and Yu Shili, while three others were wounded. Nearly 800 Chinese U.N. soldiers were on mission in Cambodia in 1992.
Cambodian defense officials, Chinese diplomats and military attachs lay wreaths to commemorate the deceased soldiers every year.
Li Liguo is in Cambodia to attend the 4th ASEAN+3 Ministerial Meeting on Social Welfare and Development to be held on Saturday in northwestern Siem Reap province.

CCC bị nghi ngờ uy tín
The Cambodian Constitutional Council’s rejection of the opposition’s litigations for invalid ballot’s recount in krate Province, and other provinces; and instead the CCC has preposterously ordered the NEC to reprimand themselves and to punish their local officials for damaging the so-called safety bags “A” that might affect the election results is another explicitly proof that their credibility is questionable. Without the UN involvement and an independent inquiry, there is nothing the opposition can get their justice from such a futile and flagrant institution.
The nine members of the CCC, virtually, at least six of them are the powerful members of the CPP: (1) Mr. Ek Sam Old, the President of the CCC, is a former CPP lawmaker from Prey Veng; he is the most arrogant MP the same as Chea Vun, when he disrupted and scolded the Opposition Leader Sam Rainsey in the past during a debate in the National Assembly without a reason. (2) Mr. Uth Chhorn, is a former CPP Auditor General; (3) Mr. Min Sean is another former CPP lawmaker from Prey Veng; (4) Ms. Chem Veiyrith, a daughter of Mr. Chem Snguon, a former CPP minister of Justice; (5) Mr. Prum Nhean Vichet, a former spokesman for the NEC; (6) Mr. Pit Taingsan is also a former CPP lawmaker. Along with these six CPP witch-hunts, the other three members are the quota from the Royal Palace, the three unscrupulous princes. Prince Chakkrapong, the most controversial politician who used to have close and odd relationships with Hun Sen. Prince Sirivuth, a former Forncinpec Foreign Affair and Interior Minister, and a close friend of Sam Rainsey before turning against him when he got position as the Co-Interior Minister. And Prince Sisovath Phandaravong, a hibernate and worthless prince. As we have seen, the members of this Constitutional Council, which have similar status and duties compared to the US Supreme Court, have done nothing to protect the rights and the will of the people but to manipulate the public in order to save the power for their Boss, Hun Sen who has increasingly become the most contemptible and controversial leader in Cambodian history.
In all alleged cases raised by the CNRP in many provinces, the CCC should order recount all invalid and questionable ballots or even re-vote in those constituencies in order to verify all dispute ballots and find the correct results before they decide who should be punished. But the CCC has rejected this important procedure which is the only way to uncover the truth. To manipulate the public, the CCC have to punish the local NEC officials using them as the scapegoats to avert the public from the facts and causes of fraud and to contain the possible rampant uncover of more systematic fraud. If the CCC let the invalid ballots recount, it will affect the results in those provinces and open for more polling places possibly throughout the country to be rechecked or verified that lead to the CPP’s loss. And if the CCC just opened the so-called safety bags “A” and did not allowed to do any thing, what is the point for opening the safety bags “A”? Or does the CCC just want to finish its job before the NEC announce the already known dubious results?
The opening of the safety bags “A” have overwhelmingly proved that the results from each province had been rigged by the NEC, especially from the hot contest provinces. The eight out of thirteen safety bags “A” in Krate and six out of twelves in Searm Reap found to be opened without explanations have justified the CNRP’s demand for recount and re-vote in those polling centers. In the US, any close or slim election margin result automatically qualifies for recount by hands (in the US all ballots counted by machines, but all dispute ballots would be recounted by hands.) even without complaints from the parties. For instance, the 2008 senate race in Minnesota resulting less than 200 votes margin for the incumbent Senator Norm Colman to win; but after ballot recount by hands, Senator Alk Frunken, a Democrat, won with just about 300 vote margin. This is an example of a free and fair election that produces a graceful result when the loser and the winner are delightful to accept their defeat or victory with dignity. In Cambodia, even though the overwhelm evidences of irregularities in the cases of the opening of the safety bags “A”, the CCC has done nothing to make a correction but to declare those irregularities as the technical issues without explanation. How did they make such a conclusion if they had not checked or verified them first?
The procedure of opening the so-called safety bags “A” by the CCC has produced nothing more than just another manipulation after the NEC had done. The disclosures only a few safety bags “A”, the rejection of recount invalid ballots requested by the CNRP, and the punishment of the local NEC officials have clearly proved that the CCC is just another political tool of the CPP, which has well cooperated with its flagrant partner, the NEC to cover up the systematic fraud and to manipulate election results. The CCC has totally lost its credibility as a final source of justice for the people and should be dismantled in the future. The only way that can bring the final justice for the will of the people is to find the third independent party, namely the UN and the Civil Society that have full credibility to settle all electoral disputes and find a fair result that is acceptable to all parties.
Về cuộc biểu tình 7-9: Sự nổi giận của dân
By Prak Chan Thul
PHNOM PENH (Reuters) – Thousands of supporters of Cambodia’s defiant opposition rallied on Saturday to demand an independent probe into July elections they say were rigged to prolong the rule of a prime minister now facing his biggest political challenge in two decades.
The Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), the amalgamation of what was once an impotent opposition to Hun Sen’s iron-fisted rule, claims it actually won the election and has vowed to hold protests until their demand was met and urged the international community to disregard the result of the national poll.
The long-dominant Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) has denied foul play and Hun Sen has said he will ignore the opposition challenge and forge ahead with forming a government.
The CPP won the election with a greatly reduced majority, signalling widespread dissatisfaction with his government, despite rapid economic growth and success in reducing poverty.
“We’re here today …to seek justice for voters who demand an independent committee to investigate election irregularities,” CNRP leader Sam Rainsy told a crowd of about 20,000 people at Phnom Penh’s Freedom Park, the only venue where demonstrations are allowed.
“We must end violence and impunity,” said Rainsy, who returned from self-imposed exile to bolster the opposition’s election campaign. “The forests are gone, the farmland is gone, there’s no jobs, our youth has no future. We must work together to rescue the nation.”
The CNRP has urged supporters not to march in the city, fearing violence could easily erupt. Security forces have cracked down hard on strikes and protests by disgruntled factory workers and victims of a spiralling number land evictions.
Thousands of riot police armed with batons and shields have this week been running crowd control drills. Security forces manned posts on nearby streets as protesters, in yellow headbands with peace signs written on their cheeks, arrived.
Hun Sen’s CPP has said it won 68 of the 123 parliamentary seats in the election, compared to the CNRP’s 55 seats, a hefty loss of 22 seats for a ruling party that has formed a close but unpopular political alliance with China, its biggest investor.
But CNRP maintains it won 63 seats to the CPP’s 60 and Rainsy has accused the CPP of colluding with the National Election Committee to steal 2.3 million votes from his party.
The CNRP’s refusal to back down is the biggest political test in two decades for 61-year-old Hun Sen, one of the world’s longest-serving leaders and a strongman who has taken credit for steering Cambodia away from its chaotic, war-scarred past towards economic growth and rural development.
But his achievements might not carry so much weight nowadays. About 70 percent of the population are under 30 and yearn for change, born long after the horrors of the Khmer Rouge’s 1975-79 reign of terror and too young to remember any other government.
CNRP has recruited a powerful ally in the country’s biggest labour organisation, the Free Trade Union, which has fought with the government over a minimum wage the CNRP has promised to nearly double. FTU members joined representatives of farmers forced off their land in speeches denouncing the government.
It has also tapped Cambodia’s tech-savvy youth, promoting itself on social media to counter the government’s strict control of the airwaves and print press.
Senior CPP lawmaker Cheam Yeap said his party had no intention of bowing to CNRP’s demands and accused Rainsy of being “ambitious and greedy”.
“There is no truth in his allegations,” Cheam Yeap said. “It’s like he’s claiming he won the election.”
