PM: Troops to Be Deployed Against Treason Case

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has announced that forces will be deployed to stop any actions attempting to topple the legal royal government.

Samdech Techo Hun Sen made the announcement while holding a get-together with 443 grade A students here at the Peace Palace, this morning.

Legal measures will be taken against any illegal acts committed by self-imposed exile Sam Rainsy without court's verdict, he stressed.

Sam Rain's promise to provide money for any soldiers who join hands with him, his insult on His Majesty the King are enough for the government to take legal action against him and his fellows, the Premier added.

Samdech Techo Hun Sen also reminded his appeal to all citizens, especially all supporters of the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) to support Ambok (Cambodia's traditional rice flakes) eating campaign in November.

According to Samdech Techo Hun Sen, this campaign will be held from Nov. 9 to 12, 2019 when the country will celebrate the Independence Day (Nov. 9) and the Water Festival (Nov. 10-12). This is a campaign to promote the defence of the nation, religion and the King.

Ork Ambok, along with Sampeas Preah Khe (Salutation of the moon), is a major event of the annual Water Festival. It is the offering of Ambok, coconut and banana to the moon.

To make Ambok, new harvest of paddy rice is fried in the husk and then pounded with a big pestle. The husks are removed, then the rest is Ambok. Cambodian people generally eat Ambok with coconut juice or banana.
