Mu Sochua urges Obama to cancel visit to Cambodia…Melia, Shasha,Michelle will enjoy Angkor beauty

Look like she lost sleep and mildly depressed, US citizen/Phnom Penh MP Sokhua

30 September 2012

PHNOM PENH (Cambodia Herald) – Opposition Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Mu Sochua has appealed to US President Barack Obama to cancel his visit to Cambodia in November.

“Please don’t let a communist government consider his visit as support for human rights abuse and unfair elections,” she said, calling for electoral reform.

US Embassy spokesman Sean McIntosh said the White House had not yet officially announced the visit.

During a visit to Phnom Penh in July, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Obama was “looking forward” to visiting Cambodia for the East Asia Summit in November.

==================================================================================

Here is her message to President Obama:
TO CANCEL VISIT TO CAMBODIA IF NO ELECTIONS REFORMS
Dear Mr. President( crossedout) , inserted (Barack) in cursive hand written!
The Cambodian community in America wishes to draw your attention to the democratic deficit that exists in our country of origin.
(sic! shuh shhh I am the Cambodian Community in America)
The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Cambodia, Professor Surya P. Subedi, in July recommended thorough reform of the electoral system to allow meaningful national elections to take place in July 2013.
(sic! why only 2013 election,the rests were okayed by me!)
A key recommendation for the reform of the National Election Committee, which administers elections, to make it a neutral rather than a partisan organization, has been rejected by the Cambodian government.
You are due to visit Cambodia in November as the country holds the presidency of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in 2012.
We call on you to cancel this trip unless you receive binding assurances of electoral reform in line with the U.N. recommendations.
(sic! at my command you do what I say because I am Cambodian Community across USA)
(sic! her Excellency firmly stand on strong legs as US citizen and a royalist partisan origin to tell Mr.Obama to quit Cambodia trip,or else!)
This should include making it possible for Cambodians living abroad to exercise their voting rights, at least in the countries where Cambodia has diplomatic and/or consular representation. If assurances of democratic elections cannot be obtained, please do not allow an autocratic government to present your visit as an endorsement by the U.S. of human rights abuses and manipulated elections leading to a distortion of the will of the people.
Professor Subedi wrote in July that “If the electoral process is unable to command the trust and confidence of the electorate, the very foundation of the Cambodian political and constitutional architecture embodied in the Paris Peace Agreements will be shaken and the country may run the risk of a return to violence.”
Over the years America has given many Cambodians the chance to achieve a better life. While they have worked to do so, Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen has held uninterrupted power since 1985.
(sic! yeah Ted Ngoy was annointed Donut King in Long Beach and Cab driver Siv Sichan was appointed Deputy Assistant to President Bush H. and Bush G.(Pretzel) made Sichan UNESCO ambassador and presently a daytime cowboy in Texas and moonlight as writer on weekend)
Please, Mr. President, use your good offices to allow our compatriots back home the opportunity for self-determination that we, as Americans, now take for granted.
 
Sincerely,
MU, SOCHUA,
(US Citizen,opted out?)
MP CHAIR SECRETARIAT
CAMBODIAN MOVEMENT FOR NATIONAL RESCUE

 

OPINION:The Impulsive Mrs. Mua Sochua Can Be Perceived to Be Rude To the US President

Cambodian politicians who wish to communicate and to deal with the US government must understand the US politics and the US Foreign policies to a certain degree.

First, sending a “personal” letter to the US President just five weeks before the “always tough presidential election” in the US is wrong timing. The Cambodian parliamentary election is ten months away, on July 28 2013. What’s a rush to cause the Cambodian?

Opposition politician to disturb the US President who is on the last leg of his campaign for re-election. It is a totally abominable miscalculation when Mrs. Mua Sochu intended to use the Cambodian-American citizens to put pressure on President Obama who needs all the votes he can get from all American registered voters.

Second, Mrs. Mua Sochu didn’t make her homework properly. She should know that the majority of Cambodian- Americans in the US are registered and hard core republican voters.

Why? Because one of the Democratic Party’s policies is to create jobs and make the people living “on welfare” going to work and earn the living. Many first-generation of Cambodian- Americans do not like that. For many valid reasons, they wanted to stay on welfare. This is absolutely not the case of the second-generation Cambodian-Americans. However the Republican Party uses the welfare-program to attack the democrats, saying that it is a “democrat program” to make the people lazy and do not want to go to work. That is just a small “corner” of the US politics.

Third, what Mrs. Mua Sochu has done was to rouse Cambodian-Americans to utilize the “power” of the vote to pressure President Obama, on the basis of the report of Mr. Surya Sabedi who, despite his praise of the National Election Committee (NEC) and the Provincial Election Committee (PEC) for good jobs done during the June 2012 Commune Election (ref. paragraph 44 of his report presented in July, as also referred to by Mrs. Mua Sochu) and surprisingly following some kind of obscure logic, he ended up asking for reforms of NEC and PEC. In this matter, Mr. Surya Subedi is no different than a bad boy who wanted to destroy a good working toy and Mrs. Mua Sochua appreciates bad boy behavior.

Fourth, needless to speak on behalf of the US, but speculating on the reactions of the US falls within “the freedom of speech,” the American way, when talking about Mrs. Mua Sochu’s letter: “We call on you to cancel this trip unless you receive binding assurances of electoral reform in line with the U.N. recommendations,” the tone and the expression are a little bit rude and arrogant and will not be well received. Another point to be made is that the American people would not appreciate their government taking action that is being viewed as the initiative of the U.N.

Fifth, the relevancy of the “UN” in Cambodia, 20 years after UNTAC administration of Cambodia for a very limited time has been put into question by many. Why the U.N. is still treating Cambodia as a child? At least U.N. should speak with the International Republican Institute (IRI) and get current information about the political trends in Cambodia, as the IRI has conducted survey every year. There are still many ways that the U.N. could be helpful to Cambodia.

Phnom Penh Court of First Instance’s Building Inaugurated…say what?

Arraignment Hearing Court,may be? Or Court for the First timers?

AKP Phnom Penh, September 28, 2012 –

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister H.E. Sok An presided over here yesterday the inauguration ceremony of the office building of Phnom Penh Court of First Instance and Prosecution at Phnom Penh Court of First Instance.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, H.E. Sok An, also Minister in charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers and co-Chairman of the Council for judicial and legal reform, expressed the royal government’s attention to the judicial and legal reform with an aim to enhance the independence and impartiality of the judicial system.

According to a report presented at the event, the six-floor building was constructed at a total cost of over US$2.7 million. The construction last one year and a half, from June 2010 to December 2012.

Cambodia Marks International Deaf Day…Cambodia everyday is blind day

AKP Phnom Penh, September 28, 2012 –

Cambodia marked here yesterday the International Day for the Deaf (Sept. 24) at Kien Khlaing National Rehabilitation Center for the Disabled under the presidency of H.E. Ith Sam Heng, Minister of Social Affairs, Veterans, and Youth Rehabilitation.

Over 400 people, including government officials, representatives of relevant organizations and institutions and persons with disabilities, attended the event.

Addressing the function, H.E. Ith Sam Heng highly praised and valued the Disabled People Foundation as well as national and international development partners for their endeavors to jointly organize this solemn ceremony.

He also informed the participants of the Royal Government of Cambodia’s endeavors to integrate the disabled into the society as well as to increase the intervention in the field of social affairs in order to enhance the job opportunities, strengthen the rehabilitation program for the disabled, and raise their wellbeing.

Cambodia to levy economic land concessions tax..Keat Chhon brilliant idea

PHNOM PENH, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday ordered investors in economic land concessions (ELC) to pay tax from the sixth year of their investment in a bid to speed up their agricultural production.

“The premier decided that investment companies receiving ELCs must pay the land tax of 5 U.S. dollars a hectare to the government from their 6th year of investment,” said the statement released after the Council of Ministers meeting. “The 5 U.S. dollar tax per hectare will be increased by 1 percent every year.”

According to the Agriculture Ministry, as of 2011, the country has granted 1.19 million hectares of ELC to 118 investment firms including 41 domestic companies and 77 foreign firms from China, Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, the United States, Malaysia, India, Singapore, Israel, Australia and Sweden.

Cambodia began to grant ELC to investors in 1993, aiming at boosting agricultural exports such as rubber, palm oil, sugar cane and cassava.

A company could get maximum 10,000 hectares of ELC for maximum 99 years. However, in May 2012, Hun Sen ordered a temporary halt to granting ELC to new local and foreign firms in order to strengthen the effective management of the granted ELC.

Cambodia’s Anti-Corruption Unit receives 800 complaints in 8 months…all ministry heads included by Chinese New Yearr

PHNOM PENH, Sept. 27, (Xinhua) — Cambodia’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) has received about 800 corruption-related complaints in the first eight months of this year, exceeding the whole last year of only 700 cases, Om Yintieng, ACU’s Chairman, said Thursday.

“Among the 800 complaints, a half of them are made in conditions of anonymity,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an anti-corruption seminar. “So far, we have investigated about 30 percent of the complaints, and in some cases, arrests will be made next week or next month.”

Cambodia is riddled with bribery and corruption. The Government of Cambodia sees corruption as obstacles to economic development, rule of law, democracy, social stability, as well as the main cause of poverty.

The country made the anti-corruption law and promulgated it on April 17, 2010; then, in the same year, the ACU was launched.

Since the launch, a number of corrupt officials in ministries and armed forces, and court judges and prosecutors have been brought to court for punishment.

According to the law, a corrupt official will be jailed between 5 years and 15 years.
