Rainsy invited to return ... to prison


Recommended Posts

The government yesterday lifted its ban on former opposition leader Sam Rainsy returning to Cambodia. It also reversed its order that all airlines and international airports put Mr Rainsy on a no-fly list.


If the former CNRP leader were to fly home, however, he could expect to spend a long time in jail over a string of convictions. Mr Rainsy has been living in self-imposed exile in France.


In December last year he was sentenced to five years in jail for conspiring to forge a public document related to the border treaty with Vietnam. Two of his assistants, who are also overseas, were convicted on the same charge.  In March this year, he was also jailed for 20 months in absentia for accusing the government of being behind the murder of political and social analyst Kem Ley.
