My dear Kacvey,

What a sad day for Cambodia on this Monday 16 November 2015!

While France is still mourning the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday 13 November 2015, Cambodia starts to mourn the death of its democracy murdered by its own national assembly which is supposed to represent it and to uphold its value and honor for the people of the country.

The manipulation by the ruling party which holds the majority of seats at the national assembly to unconsciously, impudently and hastily strip the leader of the opposition of his parliamentary privileges and immunities is the confirmation that the autocrats in the country have collectively plunged the knife into the heart of democracy, spewing its blood into the Tonlé Buon Mouk.

Herodotus, once, said: “There is nothing more foolish, nothing more given to outrage than a useless mob.”
