Phnom Penh (FN), Dec. 4 - Kem Monovithya, Kem Sokha's daughter, called former opposition leader Sam Rainsy a lair responding to the comments made by Rainsy and his supporters towards Kem Sokha’s statements.

"Sam Rainsy has repeatedly lied to the public that Kem Sokha’s messages are fake or invalid, despite confirmation from Kem Sokha’s lawyers and family of their authenticity/sincerity. Since Kem Sokha imprisonment, Sam Rainsy has led smear campaign to undermine Kem Sokha’s side of CNRP labeling them as spies,” Kem Monovithya twitted.

"We would consider any opinion supposedly issued by president Kem Sokha – who is being held hostage by Hun Sen – as reflecting his true will only when he recovers full freedom and when he can publicly speak for himself,” Sam Rainsy replied to Kem Monovithya.

Sam Rainsy was appointed as Acting President of the dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) at the Atlanta Conference held on 1-2 December, which contradicted CNRP’s by-laws deposited at the Ministry of Interior.

CNRP members, including Kem Sokha's daughters, and particularly CNRP-USA released a statement to oppose Sam Rainsy’s conference held in US’s Atlanta, Georgia.

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 2 December 2018.
