Cambodian opposition leader barred from entering Thailand

Issued: 14 August 2003

Sam Ransy, Cambodian opposition leader has been barred from entering Thailand where he planned to deliver a speech on the aftermath of national elections.

The Cambodian opposition leader has been due to address the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand on the political stalemate in Cambodia, whose Prime Minister Hun Sen is attempting to form a coalition after July 27 elections.

On his disembarking from the aircraft coming from Singapore to Bangkok late Wednesday, Sam Ransy was told by the Thai immigration officials that an order had come from the office of the Thai Prime Minister saying he was not allowed to enter Thailand while saying that his presence and public speech could create trouble. He then flew to Paris instead.

Following the national July 27 election in Cambodia, Hun Sen's Cambodian People's Party won a majority of the vote but not enough to rule in its own rights. The opposition parties, the Sam Ransy Party and the FUNCINPEC Party were asked to joined force with Hun Sen, but both have refused, resulting in the deadlock in Cambodian political scene.
