“For sure, [civil] war will erupt if they [the opposition party] win the election,” Hun Sen, 62, said in a speech broadcast on national radio.
“He [Rainsy] has not won power, yet he announced that the members of the ruling government will be brought to trial. Problems will happen like during Pol Pot’s regime,” he warned, adding that “nobody will be waiting to be arrested”.
Coldly calculated words to engender fear in Cambodians, many of who know full well the terrors of war and the Pol Pot regime.
What a disgraceful threat.
