Phnom Penh (FN), Dec. 2 - Former president of the dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) Kem Sokha's wills in opposing Sam Rainsy’s December conference is unintimidated, Sokha’s four lawyers wrote in the statement released on Sunday.

The statement was made in response to critics of Sam Rainsy’s supporters claiming that Kem Sokha’s lawyer Chan Chen does not speak the truth, which does not reflect Sokha’s true will.

It is worth noting that one of the co-lawyers Chan Chen told Fresh News that on 28 November 2018, his client announced to oppose former opposition leader Sam Rainsy’s conference to be held in December 2018 in US’s Atlanta, Georgia.

Cambodia National Rescue Party in US (CNRP-USA) also released a statement to support Kem Sokha in opposing Sam Rainsy’s conference.

A number of former opposition officials said the conference aimed to reinstate Sam Rainsy as president of the dissolved party, which caused disagreements among members.

"The organization of the Atlanta conference, held on 1-2 December, indicates that some supporters and leaders of CNRP have left and abandoned the party to join Sam Rainsy’s national rescue movement,” CNRP-USA wrote in the statement released on 30 November.
