Cambodia threatens to expel UN envoy
Phnom Penh: The Cambodian government has threatened to expel a United Nations envoy if UN agencies continue "unacceptable interference" in the country, according to a letter seen on Monday.
The move came after UN agencies in Cambodia earlier this month urged "a transparent and participatory" process as Parliament debated a controversial anti-corruption law.
In a letter to UN resident coordinator Douglas Broderick, Foreign Minister Hor Namhong alleged his office had been guilty of "a flagrant and unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of Cambodia" with the statement.
"Any further repetition of such behaviour would compel the Royal Government of Cambodia to resort to a `persona non grata` decision," he said in the letter, dated March 20.
