2/4 As leader of the Cambodian opposition, I have myself been the target of several attacks which have cost dozens of my colleagues and sympathizers their lives.
3/4 More recently, Hun Sen has publicly threatened to have me abducted while in exile abroad. I have informed the French police of Hun Sen’s criminal intentions. It’s possible that the French authorities have dissuaded the brutal dictator from carrying out his threat.

1/4 Informed observers are predicting that #Cambodia’s banks may collapse, especially microfinance institutions, for three reasons.
First: almost 3 million small borrowers can no longer repay their debts after having lost their jobs and/or their revenues in the current economic crisis.
2/4 Second: A small number of large borrowers engaged in land speculation and whose loans have been used to buy land for resale to Chinese investors are now trapped: they can no longer repay their loans and are stuck with the land after the Chinese departed.

Article from April 19:
China steps up governance of South China Sea…

While the world suffers from #COVID19 which originates in #Wuhan - #China, this is what #CCP is doing.

ASEAN is expected to fight back, yet CCP puppet, Cambodia's Hun Sen, always vetoes.
As I attached in another thread, Cambodia's Hun Sen even helps #CCP to let them build their naval base in their country:…

You know how awful this is geopolitically...

That's why, being friends with the opposition power in Cambodia is very important to the Free World.

"The sooner #China was included into the international community, the earlier it would learn to play along with international norms, the argument went. But, China’s current measures indicate otherwise. International norms are the ones being played."…
"China’s attempts to make the @UN a tool for achieving its hegemonic ambition would erode the institution’s trustworthiness from within and render international cooperation parochial."
"China’s approach to international cooperation would defeat the UN’s purpose to settle distributional conflicts since, very soon, other stakeholders would realize that cooperation is a cloak for advancing China’s national interests."

#China Limited the Mekong’s Flow. Other Countries Suffered a Drought

New research show that #Beijing’s engineers appear to have directly caused the record low levels of water in #Thailand, #Laos, #Cambodia & #Vietnam

#China, the ultimate predator state…
China's message? We feel your pain.

The foreign minister, Wang Yi, said China was also suffering from arid conditions that were sucking water from the Mekong.

But research from American climatologists shows that China was not experiencing the same hardship at all.
“The satellite data doesn’t lie & there was plenty of water in the Tibetan Plateau, even as countries like Cambodia & Thailand were under extreme duress.”

“There was just a huge volume of water that was being held back in China”.

1/12 Cambodia and the EU now face decisive choices and a moment of truth. Having committed many reprehensible acts in the course of his long rule, Hun Sen is seeking at any price to ensure the impunity that only power can guarantee. #SamRainsy #Cambodia
2/12 As he grows older, Hun Sen aims to conserve this power within his family and is preparing one of his sons, Hun Manet, to succeed him.
3/12 Increasingly guided by fear, Hun Sen seems determined to realise his plan to hold and pass on power as he wishes, regardless of the views of the Cambodian people and the international community.

1/16 A few hours before my departure from Paris planned for November 7, the Thai Prime Minister, General Prayut Chan-o-cha, personally told the press in Bangkok that he would not allow me to enter Thailand.
He therefore complied with the request that Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen had made to block my route of return.
I needed to go through Thailand to be able to enter Cambodia by land with, according to my plan for November 9, several thousand Cambodian migrant workers who were to participate in this “grand return from exile.”
