Addressing to 15,000 workers from 17 factories in Phnom Penh on Wednesday, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen announced to the public that the convicted Sam Rainsy, former opposition leader, hacked his Facebook account.
“They can’t do anything, so they hacked my account; I hope that this cyber crime will be condemned by the world […],” said Prime Minister.
“They hacked to mislead the public on Cambodian elections. We know who did this! They even thanked Facebook friends; especially to the Philippines, India, and Indonesia. Who are you? You [Rainsy] have complained about that case to Facebook,” he added.
He stressed that Rainsy’s act was a serious crime, and he allowed the competent Cambodian authorities to do the work, as they also have a relationship with the international police.
