Japanese experts see irregularities in last year general election: Official

Give our kids a better deal 

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- After months of survey, Japanese experts have found irregularities related to last year general election, an official of opposition party said. 
The irregularities were presented during a meeting between the Japanese experts and members of CPP, CNRP's joint working groups at the National Assembly.
"Japan found structure that led to disputes in elections such as issue of law, lack of officials, distrust of National Election Committee, and election dispute solving," Kuoy Bunroeun, senior CNRP official, said after the separate meeting between Kem Sokha, first vice president of the National Assembly, and the Japanese experts. 
Bunroeun said Cambodia National Rescue Party strongly supported the finding.

CNRP youth: we’ll fight ISIS

At least 50 opposition party youth members and supporters are asking for permission to join the US-led fight against Islamic State militants, a leading activist said yesterday.
In return, they hope the US will help them fight Vietnamese encroachment in Cambodia and take back the island of Koh Tral (or Phu Quoc) from Vietnam, said Soung Sophorn, 27, who was the Cambodia National Rescue Party’s sole candidate in Pailin province during last July’s national election.
“The youths who want to join [the fight against ISIS] have already prepared ourselves and this is our own choice,” he said yesterday, adding that the young nationalists want to represent Cambodia as part of the US-led international coalition.
“After eliminating ISIS rebels, I will ask the United States of America to eliminate Vietnamese rebels on Koh Tral too,” Sophorn said.
“We are already prepared to die together in fighting ISIS.”
Two other youth activists backed up Sophorn’s claims.
“When Khmer children finish [our] mission in helping the world, we will ask the world to help Cambodia back. We want the world to know our Khmer children’s heart,” said Neang Sokhun, 26, the CNRP youth treasurer in Chbar Ampov district.

CNRP Activist [Soung Sophorn] Offers to Fight Against Islamic State

Soung Sophorn speaks to the media.
BY  | OCTOBER 22, 2014
A former lawmaker candidate from the opposition CNRP announced Tuesday that he is now leading a platoon of amateur soldiers and will next week ask the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh to deploy the group in the war against the Islamic State group.
The U.S. has for four months been waging an aerial campaign against the terrorist group, which is also known as ISIS and has taken control of large swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq.
Soung Sophorn, 28, a longtime opposition youth leader who stood as the CNRP’s lawmaker candidate in Pailin province in last year’s national election, said he is now at the head of a group of 50 youth who wish to join the war in the Middle East.
“We are Cambodian youth and we want to show our will and concern on international issues,” he said.
“The reason we want to join with the U.S. to fight against the jihadist ISIS is because the extremist jihad group will start World War III and destroy people’s health by creating an Ebola biological weapon.”
The amateur soldiers will deliver a petition to the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday asking to join the fight, Mr. Sophorn said. The next day they will deliver a letter to the U.N. in support of global action against I.S.

Cambodians are the nicest people on earth - bar the VC-CPP hordes!

[American] Ex-Immigration Officer Get 51 Months for Taking Bribes from Cambodian Immigrants

A former Santa Ana-based immigration officer was sentenced to more than four years in federal prison for helping Cambodian immigrants legally remain in the U.S. in exchange for bribes. Billy Louis Nelms Sr., 54, of Los Angeles, had steadfastly maintained his innocence and accused the government of persecution and prejudice before his conviction this summer.
Nelms worked in the Santa Ana federal building as an immigration officer in the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' Fraud Detection and National Security unit from 2005 through August 2008. Cambodian immigrants who were in the U.S. without legal status paid Nelms as much as $5,000 in cash to receive his stamps on immigration documents. Some believed Nelms was granting them permanent legal status but they only received temporary status, according to federal investigators.
Court records also indicated Nelms tried to mask his crimes by using stamps that belonged to other government officials or altered stamp numbers and, after learning of a possible criminal probe, removed at least 12 files from the immigration office. After being indicted in June of 2013, Nelms and his wife tampered with two of the witnesses in the bribery case, according to prosecutors.
As my colleague R. Scott Moxley previously reported, Nelms published a website in which he identified himself as "a proud military veteran" and Christian seeking $100,000 in public donations for "emergency" legal fees because the government filed "a lawsuit" against him after he spent 2001 to 2009 "fighting racial profiling" by other immigration officials. Here's a YouTube video from October 2013 where Nelms seeks the employment of more veterans by the immigration service:
Following a seven-day trial, Nelms on Aug. 1 was convicted of conspiracy to commit bribery and defraud the United States, bribery, conspiracy to tamper with a witness, and witness tampering. U.S. District Court Judge Andrew J. Guilford late Monday sentenced Nelms to 51 months in federal prison.

PHNOM PENH—A Japanese delegation investigating election reform will meet with the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party Wednesday to report on earlier visits to Cambodia.
The opposition has demanded election reform, including a new National Election Committee, as part of a political deal, which ended their boycott of government in July.
The delegation will meet with Rescue Party Vice President Kem Sokha, as well as lawmakers from the opposition and ruling Cambodian Peoples Party at the National Assembly.

Japanese experts meet CPP, CNRP to discuss election reform

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Japanese diplomats and experts met Wednesday with joint working groups of Cambodian People's Party (CPP) and Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) to discuss election reform.

Journalists are not allowed to have an access to the meeting held at the National Assembly building.

Muth Chantha, head of the office of Kem Sokha, first vice president of the National Assembly, said he will brief the journalists after the meeting.

The Japanese experts arrived in Cambodia Tuesday for a two-day visit as a follow-up team regarding the needs survey implemented last May for electoral reform assistance to Cambodia.

The experts met with Kem Sokha, first vice president of the National Assembly and acting president of CNRP, Wednesday, and also CPP's officials

Heng Pov Appeal Dismissed; Convictions of 3 Others Stand

BY  | OCTOBER 22, 2014
Without bothering to wait for the defendants to arrive, the Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the guilty verdicts against three men convicted alongside disgraced former Phnom Penh police chief Heng Pov of conspiring to murder municipal court Judge Sok Sethamony in 2003, but did not consider Mr. Pov’s own appeal.
On September 30 and October 1, the court re-examined two cases involving Mr. Pov, who was convicted by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court of a slew of crimes for which he is currently serving a 98-year prison term. A third case was postponed due to the sudden illness of Judge Nil Nonn.

On Tuesday, within minutes of convening the court, presiding Judge Kong Srim announced that it had upheld the verdicts handed down by the municipal court against three of Mr. Pov’s co-defendants. But he said Mr. Pov had failed to file his appeal to the Supreme Court within the requisite 30 days following the Appeal Court’s verdict in 2010.
“Heng Pov’s appeal complaint was filed after the deadline, so the Supreme Court did not consider his case,” Judge Srim said while the four men were still making their way to the courtroom.
“For the other three defendants, Ly Rasy, Prum Sophearith and Hang Vutha, the Supreme Court upholds the Appeal Court’s decision from December 2, 2010.”

Travel: What Should I Do In Cambodia? (VIDEO)

I have never been to Cambodia. So I'll defer to people who have, and recommend them to you.
In the video above, a Top 10 compilation by the seemingly always-travelling crew at Vancouver-based SundayFundayz, you'll find a few suggestions that will appeal to a wide variety of travellers.
History lovers will clamour for the temples of Angkor Wat of a somber tour through the Killing Fields, while high-adrenaline backpackers are no doubt already jonesing to fire a rocket launcher in the Cambodian jungle, or to spend a few nights at Wish You Were Here hostel in Sihanookville.
Below is the group's full video tour of Cambodia, filmed in 2012. Enjoy.

Notes from Cambodia - The lost kingdom


The seatbelt sign flashes on as I look out my window excitedly—we just flew over the South China Sea and should be very close to our final destination, Cambodia. I gaze out my window waiting for something to tell me I’m there, but I see nothing except darkness. I glance back at the live map; I should be flying right over Cambodia—where are the lights, the cars, anything? Pitch black. I did my research before leaving—I’m going to be in Siem Reap, the second most popular province for tourists in Cambodia and also the place where I’ll be landing. Why is such a popular tourist town so dark? Coming from New York City, I’m used to being greeted by thousands of lights, but so far Cambodia remains hidden from sight.
Over the next weeks, Cambodia slowly opened up to me. It’s a country with a complex past which led to an even more complicated present. Before arriving, all my knowledge of Cambodia came from little tidbits I learned about the Khmer Rouge and the Vietnam War in high school history class. I realized, however, Cambodia is much more than the Khmer Rouge and its history goes beyond the war. Cambodia is very open about its past with the Khmer Rouge and resulting genocide, a horror that is on par with those in Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia yet generally unknown. The horror of civil war and genocide did not end until the late 1990s. Today, the country is still in a state of recovery and starting on its path to development.

Heart and sole for Cambodia

Katie Boom
SHOELESS KATIE: Katie Boom, founder of Shoeless, has encouraged hundreds of Kiwis to get on board the first Shoeless Day and donate to children in Cambodia.

Hundreds get behind Shoeless Day

Hundreds of Kiwis will step out with bare feet on Friday for the first ever Shoeless Day.
Hamilton woman Katie Boom, founder of charity Shoeless, has organised the day to raise money for children in Cambodia who can't afford a pair of shoes.
Boom said Kiwis have been signing up from all over the country for a chance to bare their feet to save the soles of others. 
''I'm so excited to see so many people getting behind this homegrown event, and hope that my fellow Hamiltonians will join me in going barefoot for a day,'' she said.
Locally, Fairfield Intermediate School and Hamilton Christian School are doing Shoeless Day,  as well as an early childhood education centre, and a couple of small businesses, she said.
Further north, Kamo Primary School in Whangarei with its 400 pupils and nearby 300-strong Maungatapere School  will go barefoot, with all proceeds collected going to Shoeless.
''It's changing the lives of our Shoeless kids in Cambodia and it is a perfect excuse to celebrate the onset of summer by getting your feet out into the sunshine.''

Two Cambodian Reporters Charged With Extorting Villagers [The reporters were certainly framed by corrupt officials involving in illegal logging]

Trucks loaded with timber wait to cross the border into Vietnam from Cambodia's Svay Rieng province in a file photo.
Authorities in northeastern Cambodia’s Kratie province have arrested two local journalists for allegedly attempting to extort money from villagers in exchange for not reporting suspected illegal logging activities, a district police chief said Tuesday.

But publishers of the National and Khmer Influence newspapers where reporters Nget Chandary and Nhek Peisei work, respectively, claim they were framed by police who they said cooperated with the villagers to harvest illegal wood.

They wanted the reporters’ arresting officers to be brought to justice.

The case comes a week after a reporter was shot dead in Kratie while believed to be investigating illegal logging, although police had said he may have been trying to solicit bribes from local villagers he suspected of running the scheme.

Prek Prasob district police chief Men Bunthoeun told RFA’s Khmer Service Tuesday that Nget Chandary and Nhek Peisei were arrested the previous evening following complaints from local residents who said that the two had been taking pictures in their village, in Chroy Banteay commune.

Men Bunthoeun said the two reporters had demanded 400,000 riel (U.S. $98) from the villagers in exchange for not reporting that they were storing illegal timber, but he denied that the villagers were breaking any laws.

“The villagers were simply storing [legal] wood for construction on their homes,” he said.

Cambodian peacekeepers leave for war-torn Central African Republic

PHNOM PENH, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia sent the first batch of 216 military personnel to join a United Nations peacekeeping operation in the Central African Republic (CAR) on Wednesday, officials said.

The peacekeepers will conduct their one-year mission in Bria town, about 600 km east of CAR's Bangui capital, doing work in demining, constructing roads, bridges and barracks, and digging wells, Defense Minister Gen. Tea Banh said at the departure ceremony held at the Military Airbase in Phnom Penh.
"Our mission is to join the other UN peacekeepers to stabilize the situation in the Central African Republic," he said.
He added that the Cambodian government has a strong commitment to contributing to the building of global peace through sending troops to join the UN peacekeeping mission in war-torn countries.
Meanwhile, the minister advised them to strictly abide by CAR' s laws and international laws so as to maintain the disciplines and dignity of the Cambodian Royal Armed Forces.
"Our peacekeepers must avoid any activity that can negatively affect the standards of living, tradition and customs, and dignity of the host country," he said.

Cash for refugees shames both Australia and Cambodia

Andrew Hamilton |  22 October 2014, Eureka Street

Cambodia's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sar Kheng and Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison
Cambodia's agreement with Australia to receive refugees from Nauru is moving to implementation, with Cambodian officials soon to visit Nauru. It has also been widely criticised, and refugees on Nauru have protested against it.
?The urgency with which the Australian Government has pursued the agreement is politically motivated. Many asylum seekers on Nauru have been found to be refugees. Nauru is in no position to accept them into the community, and is unwilling to hold indefinitely those found to be refugees. The PNG Government is likely to adopt the same stance. The difficulty for the Australian Government lies in its declaration that none will be resettled in Australia. Cambodia is the circuit breaker that will allow Australia to save face.
The agreement has attracted strong criticism, including from the United Nations High Commission for Refugees which refused to be a co-signatory. Critics have argued that it breaches Australia’s responsibility to provide protection for refugees. It is an exercise not of responsibility sharing for refugees but of burden shifting, from a wealthy to an impoverished nation. Australia’s commitment to the United Nations Convention, built on a universal respect for human dignity, has been betrayed. In its place has been placed a price setting mechanism for people whom nations want to dump elsewhere.
Many parallels have been adduced. It has been described as a return to the transportation policy by which Australia was first settled. It has been seen as the reverse of the common surrogacy agreement by which a poor Asian woman is paid to bear a child for a wealthier Australian woman. Here a poor Asian country agrees is paid to rear the abused children of wealthy Australia.
The agreement itself does provide some benefits for refugees. But they are limited, falling short of full protection. And experience suggests that the promises made in them will not be expeditiously delivered.

Cambodia to give Nauru refugees 'realistic' picture of resettlement

Phnom Penh media is reporting officials will travel to Australia and Nauru as soon as this week to present options to refugees

Cambodian government officials will travel to Nauru as early as this week to give refugees there a “realistic” assessment of life in that country, the Phnom Penh Post has reported.
The unconfirmed reports suggest Cambodian officials will travel to Australia this week, before flying on to the tiny Pacific island to meet refugees to discuss their option to be resettled in south-east Asia.
Refugees on Nauru have been told they will never go to Australia. They will be allowed to resettle on Nauru on a five year visa, or can choose to be resettled in Cambodia.
Cambodian Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak said the refugees would be given an honest assessment of the country.
“This is not a trip to advertise [and] to attract tourists to Cambodia, this trip is to tell them about Cambodia,” he told the Post. “About life, about culture, about the history of Cambodia and where we came from. For example, the three years, eight months and 20 days [of the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s], how we suffered. The reality of Cambodia, not the advertising.
“Cambodia is like a developing country, not a developed country like where [they] want to stay. They want to go to Australia.”

Noodle soup sickens hundreds at Cambodia engagement party

PHNOM PENH (AFP) - Nearly 300 Cambodians were taken ill after eating homemade noodle soup at an engagement ceremony, police said Tuesday.
The victims suffered diarrhoea and vomiting after the party in a remote village in central Kampong Thom province on Sunday, local police chief Soeung Phea told AFP.
Those affected were mainly children but also included a pregnant woman. She became so weak that doctors decided to induce labour to save her twins - who were born safely.

CNRP Begins Registration for First Opposition TV Station មន្រ្តីបក្សប្រឆាំងថា​ទូរទស្សន៍ ​​CNRP នឹង​ផ្សាយ​ព័ត៌មាន​ខុស​ប្លែក​ពីទូរទស្សន៍ដទៃ​

Yim Sovann, The CNRP spokesman លោក យឹម សុវណ្ណ អ្នក​នាំពាក្យ​គណបក្ស​សង្រ្គោះជាតិ

CNRP spokesman Yim Sovann said Monday that a group of people close to the opposition party has applied to register a firm with the government that will operate the television license promised to the CNRP by Prime Minister Hun Sen during the political deadlock.
Mr. Hun Sen on June 10 pledged that the CNRP, whose 55 lawmakers were boycotting the National Assembly at the time, would be allowed a TV station if CNRP President Sam Rainsy registered a private company and then applied for a license.
Each of the country’s nine terrestrial TV stations are presently either owned or aligned with the ruling CPP, and the CNRP’s demand for a station of its own was one of its key demands during the yearlong deadlock after the disputed July 2013 election.
Mr. Sovann said that the opposition party earlier this month began the process of registering the company with the government.
“We have gotten together some individuals that are loyal to the party to register a company. It will be called Cambodian Independent Media,” Mr. Sovann explained. The application to register the firm had been sent to the Ministry of Commerce, he said.
“After the private company is registered, the management of the company will send a letter to the prime minister directly to ask for the license to operate the television station.”

Parties yet to agree on part of NEC draft law

Khmerization: The "election experience" requirement is designed to block the CNRP's candidates who mostly don't have election experience, and the "dual citizenship" ban is designed to block the appointment of Dr. Pung Chiv Kek.
Hopes that the ruling and opposition parties would finally reach full accord on a new National Election Committee draft law were dashed yesterday as talks foundered on the qualifications the secretary-general of the new institution must possess.
After a meeting that lasted more than two hours, Cambodian People’s Party working group chief Bin Chhin and his Cambodia National Rescue Party counterpart Kuoy Bunroeun said the parties had reached “90 per cent” agreement.
“But regarding the secretary-general and deputy secretaries-general [of the NEC], we have disagreed on the qualifications [they should have],” Chhin said.
The CPP wants to disallow candidates who have no election management experience and possess any citizenship other than Khmer. It also wants candidates to be at least 30 years old and hold a university degree in a specific field, such as law, diplomacy or economics.
The CNRP, on the other hand, wants an age limit of 25, no subject requirement for the university degree, no requirement that the candidate have election experience and for dual citizens to be considered.
“I want to have stability after the next election and no crises like in previous elections, that’s why we need to talk further details,” Bunroeun said.
“But there is no real problem because we have many formulas to choose from.”

‘Khmer for Khmer’ Group Says No Party Plans [So Monovithya's allegations against Kem Ley and Miss Thy Sovantha are baseless]

BY  AND  | OCTOBER 21, 2014
Attendees at a conference of a new political reform association called “Khmer for Khmer,” which met for the first time Sunday, hit back Monday at claims made by a CNRP public affairs officer that the group plans to form a new party to divide the opposition.
Kem Monovithya, the CNRP’s deputy director of public affairs and the daughter of the party’s vice president, Kem Sokha, wrote in a post on her Facebook page on Friday that the group, headed by political analyst Kem Ley, would split the united opposition party.
The group held a conference in Sihanoukville to hammer out the objectives and internal rules of the new association, which they say is only intended to be a network to monitor the country’s two major parties and hold them to account.
Cambodian Food and Service Workers’ Federation president Sar Mora, who attended the conference, said that the creation of a new party had not been discussed, but the CNRP’s shortcomings had.
“We have seen that most of people are very unhappy and disappointed with the CNRP since they don’t see any much improvement after those lawmakers took office at the National Assembly,” he said.
