Phnom Penh, 20 Muharram 1437/2 November 2015 (MINA) – The U.N.’s Geneva-based Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has expressed concern over what it called an “organized attack” on two opposition parliamentarians during a pro-government rally in Cambodia.
Nhay Chamroeun and Kong Saphea were pulled from their cars and violently beaten by a mob Monday after a hundreds-strong crowd gathered outside the assembly calling on opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) deputy leader, Kem Sokha, to resign from his vice presidential position there, Anadolu Agency quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
Sokha was ousted by 68 ruling Cambodian People’s Party lawmakers in a vote held Friday, which was boycotted by all 55 CNRP members of parliament. (T/P010/R04)
