Phnom Penh (FN), Jan. 13 – A Cambodian-American Richardson, who is currently living in Cambodia, said that Hun Manet’s West Point degree is not a second-class degree as alleged by convict Sam Rainsy, former opposition leader of the court-dissolved CNRP.

In a video interview with Fresh News released on 12 January 2022, Richardson considered Rainsy's allegation “a scam to cause chaos in the kingdom”.

Richardson requested Facebook to block and remove Sam Rainsy’s Facebook page for distorting information regarding West Point degree.

Below is Richardson's video statement.
