CAMBODIA: U.S. SANCTIONS HIT THEIR TARGETS

 Hun Sen has repeatedly said he doesn't care about US reactions to his authoritarian rule undermining democracy in Cambodia. But following the US decision to restrict visa issuance to CPP officials and their families and cronies, a Cambodian government spokesman quickly asked the US to reconsider its decision.

 Hun Sen, who has never cared about Cambodia's interests and the sufferings of the Cambodian people, is now starting to pay attention to US sanctions only because they hurt the personal interests of individuals associated with his regime. 

 CPP officials and their financial cronies like to visit and periodically stay in the US where they have bought expensive properties which are being looked after by their relatives or close friends on the spot. Those relatives or close friends have come to live in the US in increasing number thanks to political and administrative support and facilities provided by the Phnom Penh government. Corrupt CPP officials have hidden in the US a significant portion of their ill-gotten money. They have notably bought American businesses currently managed by frontmen which will help ensure their future in the US when Hun Sen has to step down. Therefore they must often come to the US to visit their families and to look after their properties and other assets -- which could be frozen by another series of US sanctions.

 The US State Department has definitely hit its target with its imposition of visa ban on Phnom Penh "government officials who have seriously violated human rights and undermined democracy in Cambodia." 

 The CPP government, in an attempt to recover rights for its leaders to visit the US, now says that it is willing to receive in Cambodia young "convicted" people. These are young people detained in the US who know nothing of Cambodia's history and sufferings.

 The US is fully aware of the travesty of democracy that has taken place in Cambodia and I believe that it will continue to react in an appropriate manner.
