Phnom Penh (FN), Oct. 7 – Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has urged the armed forces to take actions against former opposition leader Sam Rainsy and accomplices, who planned to topple the government on 9 November 2019.
The urge was made during a meeting with A graders, held Monday at the Peace Palace.
“Insulting His Majesty King and urging King to abdicate are not normal things; Rainsy’s goals are not only to eliminate Hun Sen but also His Majesty,” said the premier.
“9 November is Independence Day and the birth of Royal Cambodian Armed Forces. It is inappropriate for them to set such date to topple the government,” he added.
“Their specific goal does not focus on changing Hun Sen, but changing the constitutional monarchy regime,” the Strongman underlined.
The premier warned that those who involved in the plot to topple the government must not think the government is violating their rights.
“You pass the red line; you must be sentenced intolerably,” he warned.
