Phnom Penh (FN), Nov. 9 – As of 4 p.m on 9 November 2019, Phnom Penh and Khmer-Thai borders are at ease; no any incidents or unusual mass gatherings, senior official of General Commissariat of National Police told Fresh News on Saturday afternoon.
“Overall, the situation across Cambodia is calm as usual; especially Phnom Penh and Khmer-Thai border. Cambodian people are enjoying eating ambok under the slogan [ambok khmer for the defence of Nation, Religion and King],” said the source.
It is worth recalling that the outlawed opposition leader Sam Rainsy announced the overthrow of the Royal Government of Cambodia through his repatriation on 9 November 2019, departing from Thai territory to Cambodia through Poi Pet's border.
Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha has responded that the Thai government will not allow Sam Rainsy and his accomplices to use Thai territory against the legitimate Cambodian government.
“According to our commitment to ASEAN, we will not interfere in each other’s internal affairs, and we will not allow an anti-government person to use Thailand for activism,” Prayut said.
Rainsy himself, on November 7, 2019, also announced an unclear postponement of his repatriation after Thai Airlines banned Rainsy from boarding, as his booking was not valid.
