Khieu Kanharith: Sam Rainsy Has Ambitions like Pol Pot

“The Sam Rainsy Party issued a statement on 24 April 2008 condemning Samdech Dekchor Hun Sen’s speech in Kratie of 22 April 2008 as a threat against voters.

“The statement recalls Samdech Prime Minister Hun Sen’s speech, which said that there will be instability if the Cambodian People’s Party [CPP] looses power after the upcoming elections in July. The Sam Rainsy Party considered the speech to be a threat against voters, creating a bleak atmosphere in society.

“Mr. Khieu Kanharith, the spokesperson of the royal government of Cambodia, said that Sam Rainsy has an ambition to divide the people according to stereotypes, while he has not yet power; his present ambitions are not different from Pol Pot’s ambitions.

“Mr. Khieu Kanharith explained that Samdech Prime Minister Hun Sen’s speech in Kratie is just a response to Mr. Sam Rainsy, who tells citizens in different areas of the country that, if he wins the elections, he will take the land and property of the rich and give it to the poor, and he will replace old investors with new ones. These politics of Mr. Sam Rainsy, of removing the grass and its roots, will lead to instability in society if he wins the elections.

“Samdech Prime Minister Hun Sen’s advisor Mr. Om Yentieng said that Sam Rainsy’s statement goes beyond the limit. The speech of Samdech Prime Minister Hun Sen is just describing a strategy that Samdech has seen, and he estimated its consequences.

“Mr. Om Yentieng said that the CPP has never discriminated among the citizens, and the CPP is also the party that liberated the citizens from the brutal genocidal regime.

“Sam Rainsy Party Deputy Secretary-General Ms. Mu Sochua said that the speech of Samdech Hun Sen in Kratie would frighten the voters.

“She said that this serious speech of the head of the royal government is like a war warning.

“She said that if other parties had made that speech, the CPP would have considered them to be agitators.

“The Sam Rainsy Party stated that Prime Minister Mr. Hun Sen’s speech, during an inauguration of buildings in Kratie on 22 April 2008, saying that there will be instability if the CPP looses power after the upcoming elections in July, is a threat to voters, and it is also creating a bleak atmosphere in society; it contradicts the obligation and duty of the royal government to guarantee calmness in order to promote the political rights of voters before the election day.

“Mr. Khieu Kanharith said that Sam Rainsy’s thought is that anyone who is not at his side will become his flesh-and-blood opponent. He divides people into stereotypes – those who support him are good, but those who do not support him are enemies.

“Mr. Khieu Kanharith added that if Mr. Sam Rainsy is elected to lead the royal government, and then he starts to confiscate the property of the rich for the poor, or to remove old investors and replace them with new ones, there will be chaos in society.

“Citizens who are rich are because of their hard work with their business. Therefore, if Sam Rainsy has the ambition to take their property for others, will they agree? Disagreement would lead to turmoil or to other reactions.

“Mr. Khieu Kanharith stated that the CPP is a party that has led the government of the country since when the citizens had nothing, until they became richer and live with stability and peace in the country.

“Thus, what Mr. Sam Rainsy has mentioned, is just a step toward a dream situation which is very far to reach.” Kampuchea Thmey, Vol.7, #1624, 25.4.2008
