IPU Resolutions on the case of Sam Rainsy (Bern, 19 October 2011)

Resolutions adopted unanimously by the IPU Governing Council [including the Cambodian delegation] at its 189th session (Bern, 19 October 2011). [Read the Resolution in French here].

The Inter-Parliamentary Union "Reaffirms that Mr. Sam Rainsy's gesture of pulling out temporary border markers was a political gesture, and that, consequently, the courts should never have been seized to resolve a political matter, which rather should have given rise to a debate within parliament."

The IPU "Deeply regrets that the Prime Minister's clear statement on the question of border post # 185, has not as yet led to any initiatives with a view to settling this case, which indisputably may impair the democratic process in Cambodia (...)."

The IPU "Calls once again on the authorities, including Parliament, to take action with a view to Mr. Sam Rainsy's rehabilitation so as to enable him to resume his rightful place as a member of the National Assembly and to stand as a candidate in the next parliamentary elections."
