Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 24 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen criticized an apposition activist Sorn Dara for committing a serious moral offense by insulting his parents, speaking at the graduation of more than 7,000 RUPP students, held on Friday (Feb. 24) at Diamond Island Exhibition and Convention Center.

The premier’s remarks came after Sorn Dara's parents told media reporters about their son's disobedient behavior.

"If Sorn Dara even insulted his biological parents, how can he respect the nation and people," the premier underlined.

Activist Sorn Dara left Cambodia to live in France along with other opposition leaders after the CNRP was dissolved. After living abroad, he launched a series of media campaigns attacking the Royal Government.

In a video interview on 21 February 2022, Sorn Dara’s father urged his son to stop attacking premier Hun Sen, yet Sorn Dara refused.
