Cambodian official: Thai villagers who want to sue Prime Minister Hun Sen are driven by ignorance

A
Cambodian official has strongly reacted to the intention of Thai border
villagers who want to sue Prime Minister Hun Sen in the International
Court of Justice for loss of lives and damages to their properties
stemming from armed clashes from 4-7 February, calling their intention
as “ignorance”.

On Wednesday, the Bangkok Post reported
that Thai villagers from the border village of Phum Srol in Si Sa Ket’s
Kantharalak district plan to file a lawsuit with the International
Court of Justice (ICJ) against Prime Minister Hun Sen for 3 billion
Baht (about $100 million) for damages to property and loss of lives
caused by the armed clashes.

Mr. Tith Sothea (pictured),
spokesman for the Press and Quick Reaction Unit, said the Thai
villagers’ desire to sue Mr. Hun Sen was driven by ignorance of the
truth behind the origin of the Khmer-Thai conflict. “We
consider their action as driven by ignorance because they did not
understand the truth behind the armed clashes from 4-7 February. Those
villagers should sue their own government who instigated the aggression
war against Cambodia”,
he said.

Mr. Tith Sothea added
that Thai troops had fired artillery shells at Preah Vihear temple and
at thousands of Cambodian villagers who have been displaced by Thai
artillery shells. So, Cambodia is the victim.

Mr. Tith Sothea
said that those villagers had been fed with the wrong information
because Cambodia is the victim and only used its self-defence rights to
defend against the Thai invasion.
