Doubts over Hun Sen’s modest salary claims

Hun Sen shows his certificate of assets declaration
Non-government groups say the Cambodian Prime
Minister’s comments about his relatively modest salary don’t tell the
full story about his wealth.

More than 100,000 state officials
and heads of civilian organisations are required to declare their
property, vehicles, business interests and other assets under the
anti-graft law, passed in 2010. On the first of April, Prime Minister
Hun Sen declared his assets to the country’s new Anti-Corruption Unit.

Under
the law, that declaration remains confidential… However, afterwards,
Hun Sen told reporters he earned a monthly salary of 1,150 US dollars.
The comments were criticised by Mam Sitha, president of the
non-governmental group, Cambodia Independent Anti-Corruption Committee,
who said there was an “imbalance between the size of his salary and his
current wealth.”
