U.S. Embassy Statement on the Legal Actions Against Mr. Kem Sokha
May 26, 2016
The U.S. Embassy is deeply concerned about the recent events in #Cambodia. The deployment of paramilitary forces at the Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) headquarters and armed confrontations with CNRP supporters on May 26 are disproportionate and dangerous steps. We call on the government to refrain from using unnecessary force and urge the government and CNRP to resume dialogue immediately to find a peaceful resolution to the crisis.
