Time’s list of 100 most influential people…where’s PhD.Hun Sen?

The list, now in its ninth year, recognises the activism, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals.

As Time managing editor Richard Stengel has said of the list in the past, “The Time 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it’s not a list of the smartest people in the world, it’s a list of the most influential people in the world.

“They’re scientists, they’re thinkers, they’re philosophers, they’re leaders, they’re icons, they’re artists, they’re visionaries.

“People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people.”

Check out which Asians make it into the list of the most influential.

Reader’s Pick: (Crook)Sondhi sentenced to 20 years in prison

The Criminal Court on Tuesday sentenced People’s Alliance for Democracy co-leader Sondhi Limthongkul, to 20 years in jail without parole for violating the Securities and Exchange Act, reports said.

Sondhi, a 64-year-old media mogul and a leader of the yellow shirt movement, was found guilty of verifying false documents, allowing Manager Media Group, a company in which he was one of the board members and held some shares, to seek loans amounting to 1.07 billion baht from Krung Thai Bank during 1996 and 1997.
The court found him guilty on 17 counts. On each count he was sentenced to five years imprisonment.
His 85-year jail term was halved to 42 years and six months because he confessed to the charges.
His jail term was further reduced because the law carries a maximum penalty of 20 years.

After the verdict was delivered, Sondhi went to the court basement, waiting to apply for bail.

PM-Prem meeting ‘acceptable’…Prem,the REAL King

 Bangkokpost, 27 April 2012

There was nothing wrong with the meeting between the prime minister and Privy Council chairman Prem Tinsulanonda, a prominent northern red-shirt activist said on Friday.

Petcharawat Watanapongsirikul, advisory chairman of the Rak Chiang Mai 51 group, was responding to criticism of Thursday’s event involving Yingluck Shinawatra by some factions in the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship.
Ms Yingluck and three of her deputies went to Gen Prem’s Si Sao Thewes residence in Bangkok on Thursday afternoon for a traditional Songkran rod nam dam hua blessing.
Mr Petcharawat said Ms Yingluck and the governing Pheu Thai Party must fulfill their promises made during the election campaign: to amend the 2007 charter, to create national reconciliation, to bring fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra home; and to implement their populist policies for the people.
Some red-shirts did not understand that the government and Pheu Thai must adapt to current conditions and also must abide by the demands of the majority of Thai people, he added.
Red-shirt critics of Ms Yingluck believe her government is becoming too friendly with elements that they blame for the coup that ousted her brother in 2006. They also feel she is not taking a sufficiently hard line on dealing with those responsible for the bloody end to the May 2010 red-shirt protests, in which 91 people died.
Promoting reconciliation is not about whitewashing the wrongs in connection with the 91 deaths, said Mr Petcharawat. It was aimed at healing and providing financial assistance for the victims of political violence.
Offenders must be held responsible for any wrongs they committed and must be punished, he added.
“The red-shirts should not rally against Gen Prem because the meeting between Ms Yingluck and the statesman and bringing about national reconciliation are different matters,” he said.
The red-shirts should stand firm on their stance to protect democracy and to act as guards to prevent powers from outside the system getting involved in politics. Politics is a matter for political parties, he added.
For example, Mr Petcharawat said, the red-shirts should not interfere with the coming byelection in Chiang Mai’s Constituency 3, to replace the disqualified MP Chinnitcha Wongsawat, daughter of former prime minister Somchai Wongsawat, who is married to the premier’s older sister.
It is the prerogative of the Pheu Thai Party to select a suitable candidate to run in the byelection and the red-shirts must respect the party’s decision.
Ms Yingluck insisted on Friday that she merely offered Gem Prem a Songkran blessing and that the meeting was non-political.
It is a Thai tradition that younger people should approach the more senior ones to ask for blessing during the Thai New Year festival, she said.
Asked about her 30-minute discussion with Gen Prem, Ms Yingluck said there was no discussion of politics because Gen Prem has never got involved in it.
The issues raised included ways to work to better help people in far South and other development projects on which Gen Prem had years of experience, she said.
Asked whether she had apologised to Gen Prem on behalf of her elder brother, Ms Yingluck did not answer.
Pheu Thai spokesman Prompong Nopparit on Friday said members of the public felt “sabai jai” (comfortable) with the meeting between the Yingluck cabinet members and Gen Prem.
Mr Prompong said people had expressed their views toward the meeting through the party, saying they felt at ease that the premier and her colleagues performed a traditional blessing for a “respected adult” without having any political agenda.
Mr Prompong said the meeting should not be used for any political purposes. He also claimed most supporters of the UDD were satisfied with the way Thursday’s event was conducted.

(Kim Trang) Ieng Sary’s defence puts Pang’s role in spoitlight

By Kristin Lynch, the Phnom Penh Post 27 April 2012

For three hours yesterday at the Khmer Rouge tribunal, Ieng Sary de­fence counsel Michael Karnavas meticulously dissected more than three days’ worth of testimony by Saloth Ban, attempting to prove that Pol Pot’s nephew was speculating and consequently deal a blow to the strength of his testimony.

Former Khmer Rouge Foreign Minister Ieng Sary attends his trial at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, on the outskirts of Phnom Penh.

Earlier in the week, Saloth Ban, the former secretary-general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, testified that Ieng Sary, the ministry’s deputy prime minister, was the “real boss” and held “complete responsibility”, but yesterday, Karnavas attempted to disprove such claims, focusing on the role that Chhim Sam Aok, alias Pang, played in the regime.
Pang was the chairman of government office S-71, one of the two highest-level offices within the regime.
Saloth Ban’s responses to Karnavas’ interrogation painted a picture of a leader with “influence in every ministry”, who reported to no one and “could take people away as he pleased”.
Many Ministry of Foreign Affairs personnel, Saloth Ban said, were removed by Pang or his “people” and taken to re-education centres or the notorious S-21 prison, with what seemed like little oversight or challenge.
“Ieng Sary told me that when Pang arrived, I was to do whatever Pang needed”, Saloth Ban testified.
“Did Pang ever explain to you on whose authorisation he was requesting these people to be transferred out of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs?” Karnavas asked.
“No, he didn’t explain to me, and I did not ask him,” Saloth Ban replied.
Through a repetitive line of questioning, Karnavas attempted to demonstrate that Saloth Ban had limited first-hand knowledge about the inner workings of the regime and its decision-making process and had been making statements about such matters based on personal conclusion.
Earlier in the week, Saloth Ban had said that Pol Pot never acted alone when making decisions.

Chut Wutty’s wife says he was target(ed) for murder

the Phnom Penh Post,27 April 2012

The wife of slain environmental activist Chut Wutty today rejected early police accounts of the circumstances around his shooting death, saying she believed he had been targeted for death for his work in protecting Cambodia’s endangered forests.

Speaking to the Post by phone, 40-year-old Sam Chanthy, said that her husband had been at the exact site of his death in Koh Kong province little more than a month ago, where he had been in conflict with military police officers as he attempted to examine a cache of illegally logged timber.
“I think there were third persons involved with my husband’s killing. They prepared a plot to kill him because his work was affecting their interests.
“Those people were not happy with my husband and his work …so they planned to kill him when he went there again,” she said, referring to Veal Bei Point in Mondul Seima district’s Bak Khlang commune.
In Kong Chit, Koh Kong-based coordinator for rights group Licahdo, said that according to a copy of the police report he had seen, military police officer In Rattana shot Chut Wutty, then committed suicide by shooting himself twice with his own AK-47 rifle, first in the stomach and then the chest.
“I think this report is unbelievable. We will continue to investigate and research about it,” he said.
According to the report, when Chut Wutty attempted to drive away after refusing to turn over his camera’s memory card, In Rattana fired a single bullet, which entered the activist’s body at the knee and traveled upward into his stomach, killing him instantly.
While police say a gun was found in Chut Wutty’s possession, there was no indication it had been fired.
Thong Narong, commander of the Koh Kong provincial military police, refused to divulge details of the emerging police narrative of events, but confirmed to the Post that a medical examination had revealed a single AK-47 bullet had struck Chut Wutty in the knee, while In Rattana was wounded in the stomach and chest.
Two Cambodia Daily journalists who had accompanied Chut Wutty on the trip, Phorn Bopha and Olesia Plokhii, were released this morning following police questioning, he added.
Speaking to the Post, Phorn Bopha said that she and her colleague had been released at 9:30 a.m.
“I am safe and was not wounded,” she said by telephone. “We now are traveling back to Phnom Penh.”
Chut Wutty’s family, meanwhile, claimed his body in Koh Kong today and said that it will arrive at his birthplace – Svay Meash village, in Ksach Kandal district’s Vihear Sour commune – at about 7:30 this evening.
“I am still in shock that my husband was killed. His death is a big loss in my family and also the loss of a valuable and great person in Cambodia,” Sam Chanthy said.   “To find truth and justice for my husband, I would like to ask the concerned authorities and human rights groups…especially Prime Minister Hun Sen, to take action and arrest the persons who were involved or behind my husband’s killing.”
A funeral service is planned for Sunday.
