PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Kem Sokha, first vice president of the National Assembly and deputy president of CNRP said Saturday that he is going to look into CNRP’s representative Mr. Son Chhay’s complaint.
Mr Son Chhay reprimanded two people and those who are in family favor at the national assembly. A few days ago, Mr. Son Chhay wrote a letter to general secretary of the National Assembly to explain irregularity, which has been occurring in the National Assembly.
“I do not comment. I have to investigate and do research on it,” said Mr. Kem Sokha .
Mr. Kem Sokha’s comments came after Mr. Son Chhay, deputy chairman of financial committee of the National Assembly submitted his letter to secretary general department of the National Assembly to investigate nepotism in the institution.
Mr. Son Chhay accused Mit Kerein, deputy secretary general of the National Assembly via his letter of using power to appoint many of his family members to work at the national assembly which he said leads to the lost of national budget and systematic corruption in this institution.
Most of Mr. Mit Karen’s family members are in the position of taking care of lawmakers’ salaries, general director of administrative and finance and internal audition at the National Assembly, according to Mr. Son Chhay.
