Rong Chhun Encourages the Prime Minister to Keep His Promise – Wednesday, 19.11.2008

“The President of the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association, Mr. Rong Chhun, encouraged Prime Minister Hun Sen on 18 November 2008 to keep his promise – he should not make promises and then not keep them.
 
“It should be noted that yesterday, the president of the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association, Mr. Rong Chhun, sent a letter to Prime Minister Hun Sen, who was elected in a combined ‘package’ vote, to remind him, ‘Before the general elections on 27 July 2008, Samdech Prime Minister publicly promised to provide Riel 20,000 as a special payment per month, to teachers and other civil servants starting from July to the end of 2008.’

“The letter of Mr. Rong Chhun went on to say, ‘So far, the leaders of ministries and the relevant municipal and provincial departments have not yet released these Riel 20,000 per month to teachers and to other civil servants.’
 
“The letter of the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association said that according to reports from teachers in the provinces and cities, there are only two provinces where teachers had received this special payment for four month.
 
“It is said that the words of prime ministers in other countries are considered very valuable for a nation and for its citizens, but the words of the Khmer Prime Minister Mr. Hun Sen, they are ‘like tadpoles’ cries in a clay pot.’ Therefore it would be better if Mr. Hun would keep his promise.
 
“Frequently, Mr. Hun Sen blames politicians of other parties that they just make promises to the citizens, but do not do anything.

“However, at present, the promise Mr. Hun Sen has made since before the elections for the fourth term, Mr. Hun Sen has not kept it. Therefore why does Mr. Hun Sen not blame also himself?
 
“In order that the words addressed to Mr. Hun Sen, the Cambodian Prime Minister, can be seen directly as they were expressed, the editorial group of Khmer Machas Srok would like to publish the letter of the president of the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association in its original version [the Khmer newspaper brings here a facsimile version of the letter]:
 

Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association
 

Letter Number 47                                                                                                  Phnom Penh, 18 November 2008
 
To Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor Hun Sen
Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia
 
Respectful Greetings to Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor,
 
Before the general elections on 27 July 2008, Samdech Prime Minister publicly promised to provide Riel 20,000 per month as a special payment to teachers and other civil servants, starting from July to the end of 2008.
 
So far, leaders of ministries and relevant municipal and provincial departments have not yet released the special payments of Riel 20,000 per month to teachers and to other civil servants. According to the reports that the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association received from teachers in different provinces and cities, only two provinces reported that teachers had received the four months special payments.
.
As reported above, I hope that Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor will check and solve this for teachers and for other civil servants, according to this announcement.
 
With the expression of my respect,
 
(signed)

Rong Chhun
President
