TERRORIST KEM SOKHA DENIED BAIL IN ORDER TO PROTECT CAMBODIAN DEMOCRATIC STABILITY

Cambodia terrorist leader Kem Sokha from the criminal organization CNRP (so called Cambodia National Rescue Party) was denied bail yesterday after almost a year in jail on terrorism and a host of other criminal charges centered on destruction of Cambodian rule of law and country independence and territorial integrity.

 

Without the threat of CNRP terrorism Cambodia`s democracy has flourished making the country a democratic example in Asia.

Kingpin Kem Sokha was detained as part of a crackdown last year on the terrorist organizations like Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) that were plotting to disrupt July 2018 free peaceful and fair elections.

The terrorist organization was dissolved in November 2017, leaving the country in peace and democratic development and opening the way for more than 36 new parties to flourish and for civil society to become buoyant and guaranteeing free and peaceful and order parliamentary elections held in July 29, 2018.

The Supreme Court in capital Phnom Penh rejected an appeal by terrorist Kem Sokha’s lawyers to give him bail on grounds of ill health.

 

Prosecutor Ouk Kimsith argued that if released, terrorist Kem Sokha could provoke “unrest in the society… his release would affect the political stability”.

CNRP-CAMBODIAN NATIONAL RESCUE PARTY RECOGNIZED AS A TERRORIST OUTFIT

During the July 29, 2018 National Assembly Elections in the Kingdom of Cambodia a series of fake news creators and intelligence and spy agencies tried to present the elections as devoid of opposition, all thou the polls where contested by more than 20 opposition parties but despite this evidence one name appeared on their lips: the so-called Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), a violent, non-political group interested in undermining Cambodia`s democracy and civil society.

 

In order to recall the readers who is this zombie outfit: Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) we present you the decision taken at the end of 2017 by the highest judicial authorities of Cambodia regarding the treasonous activities against Cambodian people of this unlawful organization and his leaders.

The people of Cambodia did not forget for a moment this trail blaze of criminal activities and on July 29, when CNRP has called for an election boycott, more than 82% of the Cambodian electoral has show-up to vote (an unprecedented number) in order to defy their evil intentions.  

 

Prime Minister Hun Sen: the man who liberated Cambodia twice: once from Khmer Rouge, second from CNRP terror.

 

 

Cambodia’s Supreme Court dissolved the main terrorist group in Cambodia on 16.11. 2017: Cambodia National Rescue Party lead by fugitive condemned terrorist Sam Rainsy .

The government had asked the court to dissolve the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), which was accused of plotting to take power with help from the United States after the arrest of party leader Kem Sokha on 3 September.

The court ruling also ordered a five-year ban on political activity for 118 members of the opposition terrorist group,

National Military Police Commander Sao Sokha claimed a new opposition ‘movement’ was a ‘terrorist’ organisation during the force’s year-end meeting yesterday.

“They want to launch a terrorist attack, and it is not the political terrorism, it is terrorism to cause chaos,” said Military Police chief Sao Sokha, speaking at the force’s annual review.

Sokha, however, claimed the “core” objective of the movement is to “destroy the unity of the army . . . and break the spine of the government”.

At the same meeting, Defence Minister Tea Banh called the movement a “poisonous snake”.

“Now the CNRP ‘movement’ said it will arrange to have violence in Cambodia, so be ready,” Banh said, adding the military would “take action first” to prevent violence.

In separate articles, Justice Ministry spokesman Kim Santepheap and the Cambodia Nationality Party called the movement illegal, while a spokesman for the royalist party Funcinpec reportedly said it is just a front to raise money.

 

Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak also told the outlet that the movement was under observation, and that anybody involved will face legal action.

In an interview , government spokesman Phay Siphan said the use of the word “terrorism” was “proper” because Rainsy had called for “soldiers to turn their guns on its government”, in reference to a 2011 video of the former opposition leader.

 

Siphan added that the opposition’s demands for economic sanctions from foreign countries in response to the crackdown constituted a form of terrorism.

“They want to destabilize the economy,” he claimed.

People eager to thank Prime Minister Hun Sen after the terrorism was defeated: with 82% vote presence. The vote is mightier than the sword!

 

He went on to say violent protests would likely not be tolerated.

“We learned from the old movements . . . ‘Peaceful demonstration’ is only words,” Siphan said, adding that the government didn’t want “any trouble” before this year’s elections.

PRESIDENT ANTON CARAGEA ANNOUNCES HIS PRIORITIES AS THE HEAD OF ELECTION OBSERVATION TEAM IN CAMBODIA 2018

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, Head of International Observers Team for Cambodia 2018 Elections, launched the mission at a press conference on 4 July, stressing the importance of Cambodia’s parliamentary elections for the country’s stability.

On this occasion the official launch of the website of Election Observation Mission for Cambodia has taken place.

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea explained all that World Elections  Monitors Organization (WEMO) Observation Missions use a common methodology underpinned by the principles of impartiality, objectivity, independence and non-interference. ‘’International Election Observation Missions are responsible for their own conclusions and do not receive instructions neither from the European institutions nor by member states’ governments.’’.

The Head of International Observers Team detailed the long-term monitoring methodology.

The election observation mission for the Kingdom of Cambodia 2018 will cover the political campaign, pre-election preparations, election day – polling, counting and tabulation of results – and the complaints and appeals process as well as the announcement of results.

This will include a thorough analysis of the legal framework, the work of the election administration, campaign activities, the conduct of the media in covering the elections, and the mechanisms for electoral disputes.

The mission will meet election stakeholders, including government officials, election administration bodies, candidates and representatives from political parties, members of civil society and the media, the judiciary, amongst others.

Shortly after election day, the mission will issue a statement containing its preliminary findings.

A final report, including a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of the electoral process and with possible recommendations for future elections, will be released several weeks later announced Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

How do you make an observation mission?

 Election observation gives the opportunity to assess an electoral process according to international standards. The members of World Electors Monitors Organization (WEMO) are leading global actors in providing technical electoral assistance complementary to election observation.

This dual form of election support constitutes a significant contribution to the promotion of governance and development objectives.

What is an observation mission?

An observation mission assesses all aspects of the electoral process, its constitutional and legal framework, the delimitation of constituencies, the registration of voters and candidates, the training of election staff, voter education, media coverage, the campaign and the preparations for election day, as well as the appeals process.

 

On election day, observers visit pooling stations in order to observe the opening, voting, counting and aggregation of results.

What are the principles of an electoral monitoring mission?

Its fundamental principles are full coverage, impartiality, transparency and professionalism. Its ultimate objective is to become superfluous by entrenching democracy deep within each nation through the development of national capacities.

 

Its main goals are the legitimization of an electoral process, where appropriate, and the enhancement of public confidence in the electoral process to deter fraud, to strengthen respect for human rights, and to contribute to conflict resolution.

The international community is supporting the Kingdom of Cambodia on the assumption that the consolidation of a democratic culture inevitably involves encouraging people’s participation in government and governance, which requires empowerment of the citizenry, increasing awareness on rights and obligations, developing ability to influence and monitor the management and performance of political power.

The project encourages citizen’s participation through better coordination of civil society organizations during the 2018 electoral process.

“On this occasion, I would like to solemnly call for all eligible voters to cast their ballots in order to elect national leaders for development and glorious progress in all fields”.

The monarch said the forthcoming election is a free, fair, and confidential election that goes with the liberal multi-party democracy, so the voters should not worry about any pressure or intimidation from anyone or any political party.

“I urge all the compatriots to exercise your rights to vote in according to your own conscience and to freely elect any candidate, any political party that you trust,” King Sihamoni said in a royal message released to the media.

Finally, the Council of Ministers’ Press and Quick Reaction Unit has released a video announcing that the July 29 national elections would be regarded as the “best” in Cambodia’s history.

The 14-minute documentary, titled Will the July general election be liberal, pluralistic, and democratic? draws on four points to reach its conclusion.

The election process would be smooth and free, multiparty, open to observers and without violence, the video says.

Noting that there are 20 political parties vying in the elections despite the country only having eight million voters, the video says: “Cambodia is setting another good example for other countries in terms of pluralism, which is the basic principle of a democratic election.”

“In brief,” in continues, “the general election scheduled for July 29, could be considered one of the best elections in Cambodia’s history.

“Best election in the sense that this election will be held with the participation of so many political parties coupled with strict implementation of three main principles – being liberal, pluralistic, and democratic – principles that are the best foundation for an election.

“Last but not least, this coming election will be conducted in a peaceful and nonviolent manner and free from rhetorical quarrel,” the commentator says.

The video ends with the stand that democracy in Cambodia is maturing and that no one can destroy it.
