Mam Sonando arrested on Sunday morning [... under trumped up charges]

Phnom Penh – Cops dressed in civilian and in uniform clothes came to the house of Mam Sonando, which also serves as the office of the Beehive radio station located in Thnot Chrum village, Boeung Tompun commune, Meanchey district, Phnom Penh, to arrest him. Mam Sonando is also the president of the Democrat Association and owner of the Beehive 105 FM radio station. According to Mrs. Din Phanara, Mam Sonando’s wife, the arrest was made at 9AM on Sunday 15 July 2012.

Din Phanara indicated that when the cops came to arrest Mam Sonando at home, they read to him the court order issued by the Phnom Penh municipal court which accused Mam Sonando of involvement with land dispute in Kratie province.

As of this morning, the cops took Mam Sonando from his home to the Phnom Penh police headquarters for questioning.

Mam Sonando arrived in Phnom Penh on 10 PM on 12 July 2012, following his visit in the US. He was not arrested at his arrival at the Phnom Penh airport where he was greeted by family members and members of the Democrat Association. At that time, civil society organizations and reporters were closely observing his arrival in Phnom Penh.

In his interview with reporters, Mam Sonando said that he was not afraid of being arrested by the cops because he is not involved with any case where he would incite people to grab land, accusations that were leveled against villagers in Kampong Damrey commune, Chhlong district, Kratie province.

In this land dispute case, Hun Xen announced that legal actions will be taken against the president of the Democrat Association and he claimed that the latter incited people to grab land in anarchy. Because of that, the government had to send cops and soldiers to raid the villagers and this action led to the killing a young teenager on 16 May 2012. Several villagers were also arrested during the raid while a large number of them fled.

Five members of the Democrat Association branch, including Bun Ratha, were pursued by the cops following a court order. The five were accused of being leaders in the land dispute and they incited people to grab land and form a secession zone in Proma village, Kampong Damrey commune, Chhlong district, Kratie province.

Up to now, 4 of the accused came out to confess and the cops used them as witnesses to level charge against Mam Sonando, the president of the Democrat Association.

Mam Sonando, an activist critical of the border issues, was arrested and sent to jail by Hun Xen’s regime on 2004. Prior to his arrest, Mam Sonando left Cambodia to visit France and the US since 12 March 2012.

Whatever it is, you must use a diplomatic dialogue, don't ever abuse the power just because you have the top seat. Respect one another is very significant. After all, we all are Khmers, or if one is committed to work for the benefit of khmer citizens and has evidence to prove it,then, he/she is considered as khmer nationalist. There is no other excuses for arresting him/her and let other nations take advantage of our downfall. We have all kinds of races in the West and most of whom are working for the benefit of the West and off course we have been considered as their own citizens as well. We must learn to'respect/accept common ground and reserve differences' Zhou. PM must learn to include all of our khmer nationalists from across the glob and must acknowledge that you yourself alone can not run the nation. Everything else is fake, just 'look at the past and you will see the future' some philosophy scholars. Do not value money more than the benefit of national interest. For life is too short, you must learn to do the right and the right thing will save you, your family members and our nation. Again if you arrest this man, I urge to release immediately for our national interest and also for a good role model as a good leader should do. You can not arest a person without evidence to prove it. Even if he said something relating to the political issues, still, everyone has the right to do so in order to improve the quality of life for everyone. Most critical analysis would allow you to see a bigger pictures, e,g. 360degree angle. So, be smarter PM, because if you apply your aggresiveness, than the whole world will watch over you. Best is to use a deplomatic dialogue and discuss on what went wrong and if posible please say sorry to one another so that the public can learn from you both as well.

Hun Sen's priority for development is to kill all nation lovers and replace them with stupid CPP followers who would work blindly without questioning. CPP is the party listens to Vietnam and subdues their own kind in order to defend Vietnam's political goals.

Is Hun Sen really the man for our beloved nation???? Do we really want this man anymore???? Is he really help or hurt Cambodia in the long run???? Please help answer my questions!!! Thank you very much...
