This news was happened last week. I try not to have any opinion and wanted to be neutral. But I couldn’t help to stay away from it. I have to get it off from my chest.
I am quoting from PM Hun Sen in response to RFA reporter’s question on terminating position of Tourism Minister who was currently held by a member of FUNCINPEC party. PM Hun Sen then appointed his own CPP party to the position post. The reporter was questioning if this act would end the relationship between the two parties.
PM Hun Sen shot back in fiery anger and pointed a finger straight to the reporter:
“From the name ‘RFA’ when asking questions, let me use one word to describe and go ahead broadcast it ! The name ‘RFA’ not only the radio station itself but also its reporter who asking question is ‘insolent’…I’ve seen your RFA station is very insolent and far beyond. Moreover, its reporter asking questions also very insolent ! “
RFA reporter by his pen name Keo Nimol now is in hiding for fear of his life after he asked the question to the prime minister. He was so afraid. PM Hun Sen bodyguards were circling around him.
The reporter was just merely asking the question. PM Hun Sen is appeared as the insolent one. He should control his temper answered the question calmly.
