AKP Phnom Penh, October 16, 2012 –

The Kingdom of Cambodia is going to hold the official mourning period for King-Father Norodom Sihanouk for a week from Oct. 17 to 23 when his body reaches the country, according to a government’s directive issued yesterday evening.

National flags must be flying at 1/3 below the top of the mast across the country during the mourning period, while all entertainment activities including TV and radio entertainment programs have to be postponed, said the directive signed by Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen.

The directive also advised the overseas Cambodian embassies and consulates to prepare a place so that people can pay their last respect to the King-Father and a condolence book as well as to display King-Father’s photos.

The King-Father’s body will be exhibited at the Royal Palace for at least three months before being cremated, underlined the directive, adding that during this period, civil servants, citizens and foreign friends can pay their last respect to the King-Father.

King-Father Norodom Sihanouk passed away in the early morning of Oct. 15 in Beijing, China at 01:20 am (local time in Phnom Penh) at the age of 90 from natural causes.

His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni and Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen arrived in Beijing on Monday afternoon to bring the King-Father’s body home for a traditional funeral at the Royal Palace.
