Mr. Sam Rainsy (pictured), president of the Sam Rainsy Party (SRP), has said that the Parliamentary Permanent Committee's decision to lift his parliamentary immunity is undemocratic, unconstitutional and contravenes judicial process.

He added that the lifting of his parliamentary immunity is politically-motivated because the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) wants to supress the MP's freedom of expression.

Mr. Sam Rainsy said that he has written a letter to King Sihamoni requesting for a royal pardon by proposing to divert the 10 million riels fines ($2,500) to charity. He added that the fines will be paid to Kantha Bopha Children's Hospital to help the poor families who cannot afford to get treatments for their children at the hospital.
