Phnom Penh (FN), Aug. 31 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen apologized the governments of South Korea, Japan, and Thailand and asked them not to file complaints against workers who quitted their jobs due to Khem Veasna’s propaganda.
The premier spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony of two new flyovers on Wednesday (Aug 31) in Phnom Penh.
“I would like to ask the governments of South Korea, Japan and Thailand for apology due to labor shortages resulted from the quitting Cambodian workers who trusted the propaganda made by a political party leader Khem Veasna,” the premier underlined.
LDP leader Khem Veasna has been spreading superstitious propaganda to his supporters that at the end of August 2022 or soon, there will be floods all over the world, including Cambodia. Only at Kulen Mountain [where his land locates] is a safe place to settle. As a result, his supporters who are working and living in Cambodia, South Korea, Japan and Thailand decided to quit their jobs and pack to settle at Veasna’s land near Kulen Mountain, Siem Reap province.
On 31 August 2022, Siem Reap authorities decided to put Khem Veasna’s land on lockdown, so Veasna’s supporters are no longer allowed to enter, but to leave.
