Kal's take on 'Khmerisation' blog and its readership management choice





Re: "I don't see Vietnamese protest or do any demonstration in Cambodia. I don't see Vietnamese in Cambodia post anything things...
That's what Khmer race is known for, a killer race...

I say, let's fix the Khmer race up.

-Drgunzet- "

....

I personally never realize how desperate Khmer[rization] is for readership [if any] and goes so far as to harboring and perhaps glorifying/revering a Viet[Yuon]?/ Viet sympathizer such as this individual known as Drgunzet to openly make such racist comment(s) vis-a-vis Khmer people day in and day out here on Khmerization blog...Furthermore, I have just found out on the main page of Khmerization blog that two of my favorite bloggers, (1) School of Vice, and (2) Jendhamuni [who are also the owner of KImediablogspot.com] are team members and contributors to this Khmerization blog as well.

As a Khmer national, I feel ashamed by all of this and I am protesting it by never again to being the reader of Khmerization.blogspot.com and KIMedia.blogspost.com.

Good luck to the rest of Khmer nationals!!!

‘Hell Life’: Prey Speu’s history of oppression


Detained Borei Keila activists scale a wall to escape from the Prey Speu Social Affairs Centre in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district in 2012. Pha Lina


Thu, 18 September 2014 ppp
Alice Cuddy and Sen David

Earlier this month, a group of homeless people were rounded up from the streets of Phnom Penh and taken to a detention centre they said offered meagre meals, uncomfortable conditions and no access to a bathroom.

Those detained – a group that included children – said they were treated like criminals, though their only crime was having nowhere to call home.

While the incident spurred criticism from NGOs and the United Nations, it was only the latest in a string of forced detentions at Por Sen Chey district's Prey Speu Social Affairs Centre, a place rife with allegations – spanning more than a decade – of abuse, rape and even murder.

On the very walls of the centre, messages of desperation speak of a history of horrors.

Photographs, captured by local rights group Licadho in 2008, show messages of “living in terror [and] under oppression”.

One detainee scratched the words “Hell Life” onto the wall of a room where the windows had been nailed shut.

Following allegations of abuse, Prey Speu officially shut down in June 2012, but was reopened last year, rebranded as the Por Sen Chey Vocational Training Centre.

In reality, the changes seem to have been only cosmetic.

Cambodia supports U.S. strategy against ISIS

Xinhua, 18-Sep-14

PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen announced Thursday that the country supported the U.S. President Barack Obama's strategy to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

"For our stance on ISIS, previously, we have subsequently condemned the killings of American and British journalists, and we will continue condemning such brutal crimes," he said during a national conference. "Cambodia has no possibility to send forces to directly fight with ISIS group in Iraq, but, mentally and politically, we support all activities that destroy terrorism groups -- not only ISIS, but also al-Qaida and other groups."

The prime minister said Cambodia would do all its best to prevent terrorists from taking Cambodian territory as their shelter or terrorism financing place, and would share information that could be useful in the campaign to fight against terrorism.

"We do not tolerate any terrorism act," he said. "In fact, Cambodia is not the target of terrorism attack, but we should not forget that more than 4 million foreign tourists have come to Cambodia each year and many foreign companies are doing businesses in Cambodia."

ISIS has recently claimed to have established an "Islamic Caliphate" in parts of Syria and Iraq.
The group, led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, said their goal is to establish an Islamic state in Iraq and Syria to fight the Shiite- led Iraqi central government and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose top ranks are from the Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.

‘No political angle’: Pranab allays China concerns over oil deal with Vietnam

President Pranab Mukherjee in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on Wednesday. (Source: PTI) 

Written by Abantika Ghosh
The Indian Express, September 18, 2014 2:07 am

President Pranab Mukherjee Wednesday sought to allay Chinese concerns over the India-Vietnam agreement on oil exploration, possibly in the South China Sea, saying ONGC Videsh has been carrying out operations in the region since 1988 and that it involved only commercial activities with no “political angle”.

The President was returning from a three-day state visit to Vietnam during which ONGC Videsh (OVL) and PetroVietnam signed a letter of intent (LoI) on oil exploration in the region. India’s relations with China and Vietnam, Mukherjee said, were independent of each other as New Delhi does not believe in looking at one country through the “prism” of another. Chinese President Xi Jinping is currently visiting India, and had a dinner meeting with PM Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.

PetroVietnam has offered seven new oil blocks to India, all of which are in territorial limits of Vietnam, clarified Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who was part of the delegation that accompanied the President.

China's President Arrives in India as Troops Face Off at Border

The Wall Street Journal, September 17, 2014

NEW DELHI—Indian and Chinese security forces were locked in a confrontation on their countries' disputed border Wednesday as China's president arrived in India on a trip aimed at boosting economic ties between the two Asian giants.

In the Himalayan region of Ladakh, Indian troops faced off against Chinese soldiers who last week began building a road in an area that India regards as its territory, an Indian official said.

Friction along the two nations' 2,200-mile-long border, much of which is undefined and contested, has mounted in recent years, India says. And it poses a serious hurdle to improving relations between Delhi and Beijing.

On Wednesday, however, the two sides seemed intent on deepening trade and investment links despite significant strategic misgivings, such as India's unease at China's increased Indian Ocean presence, and Beijing's concerns about India's growing ties with Japan and the U.S.

US Activists Disappointed With Opposition in Cambodia




Pin Sisovann, VOA Khmer, 17 September 2014

WASHINGTON DC— Cambodian human rights and democracy activists in the US have split opinions on the deal cut between the ruling party and the opposition in July, ending a political deadlock that had lasted since the July 2013 elections.

In a recent discussion in Virginia, outside Washington, many said they felt the Cambodia National Rescue Party had betrayed its US supporters in making the deal with the ruling Cambodian People’s Party.

Vann Sar, adviser to Cambodian Americans for Human Rights and Democracy, said the news from Phnom Penh of differing political opinions of the two parties is cause for concern for opposition supporters.

Xinhua, September 17, 2014

PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen's just-concluded visit to China's Nanning city for the 11th ASEAN-China Expo is a "success", contributing to further enhancing Cambodia's ties with China and ASEAN, a senior official said Tuesday.

"The prime minister's visit to Nanning is a success in terms of politics and economics," Kao Kim Hourn, minister attached to Prime Minister Hun Sen, told reporters at Phnom Penh International Airport upon Hun Sen's return from Nanning.

He said China has highly valued the presence of Hun Sen at the expo.

"The expo was a good opportunity for Prime Minister Hun Sen to hold bilateral talks with Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli to discuss cooperation and to seek aid for the development of Cambodia," he said.

The National Assembly will sit next month to amend the constitution and enshrine a revamped National Election Committee, opposition party officials said yesterday.

According to Cambodia National Rescue Party lawmaker and spokesman Yem Ponharith, working groups from the CNRP and ruling Cambodian People’s Party have finished debating exactly what will be added to the constitution.

“We have already finished the new constitutional draft [chapter], and the parliament will pass the amendment of the constitution in early October,” he explained.

Ponharith added that party working groups aimed to complete a new draft law governing the NEC by the end of the month.

Xinhua, September 17 2014

PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- Senior Cambodian officials on Tuesday vowed to further enhance cultural and people-to-people relations between Cambodia and China for the benefits of the two countries and peoples.

"Cambodia supports all activities to broaden cultural ties with China," Cambodian Minister of Culture and Fine Arts Phoeurng Sackona said during a meeting with Yu Zhou, deputy chief of Third Department of Beijing People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia.

"Cambodia and China are good brothers, friends and neighbors," she said. "A lot of Chinese expatriates are living and doing businesses in Cambodia, and they get along with the Cambodian people."

China targets online brokers

The Phnom Penh Post, Wed, 17 September 2014

Single Cambodian women are “extraordinary”, boasts a matchmaking website called rosebrides.com that offers 69 eligible Cambodian brides in search of a foreign husband.

Such online bride advertisements are the targets of a new anti-human-trafficking initiative in China, where police on Monday announced they would stamp out the marriage-brokering services to prevent the exploitation of women from poorer countries. And Cambodian officials are keen to help scrub the internet of profiteering brokers.

“We support the crackdown and elimination of these websites,” Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak said. “Marriage websites, and any kind of bride brokerage involving a middleman, is illegal in Cambodia.”

Yet ample bride-shopping opportunities for a quickfire, mail-order wedding persist. To get around the legality of selling brides, some websites disguise their services as dating sites. At rosebrides.com, “gentlemen” are warned that “mail order brides don’t exist”, but can peruse five searchable pages of Cambodian “mail order brides”. The women, aged 19-51, are arranged like items up for auction, with clickable mug shots and details on their height, weight and what kind of man they want.

Other sites offer group package tours catering to men from Singapore, China and Japan. In exchange for $5,000-$12,000, some pledge a 90 per cent success rate after the men take a five- to seven-day gander. Others guarantee the women’s virginity, and a few even promise a replacement wife if the first

Money still owed in Global Fund scandal

The Ministry of Health still owes $83,053 to the Global Fund, the remaining portion of $473,300 in misused funds identified by the international donor body in a damning corruption investigation last year.

The results of the more than two-year-long probe were released publicly in November and uncovered significant corruption in two ministry institutions.

All remaining funds are owed by the National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM), which was implicated in the most significant graft in the fund’s investigation, a fund spokesman said on Monday.

The Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) has yet to hold anyone to account for the corruption.

Former CNM director Duong Socheat and an unidentified deputy director were found to have obtained improper commissions from mosquito net suppliers between 2006 and 2011 worth $410,782.

Naga eyeing institute land [The vices' revenge?]

NagaCorp, the parent company of Phnom Penh’s NagaWorld casino, has confirmed that it is eyeing land occupied by the Buddhist Institute for a new hotel development, a revelation that comes mere months after the government proclaimed in no uncertain terms that the institute was there to stay.

The expression of interest, made in a conference call with NagaCorp investors on August 7, confirms the suspicions of activist monks, but the government says no concrete proposal has come its way.

Philip Lee, chief financial officer of NagaCorp, told investors and analysts during the August conference call that the company had plans for Naga3 – a hotel without gaming operations – which, if approved, would result in relocating the Buddhist Institute not far from its current location.

“Now, it is important to note that … presently Naga3 is very much in planning. It is conceptual. We are in discussions with the authorities to develop that location,” Lee is quoted as saying in the call’s transcript, which has since been removed from the company’s website.

“So we are working – we have proposed or at least to build Naga3, which will comprise – in the centre, you see that pyramidal kind of structure.… And on the left of it, the white structure would be the new office of the Buddhist Institute.”

Rights Group Slams ‘Crisis’ of Police Abuse in Vietnam

Police abuse and torture is rampant throughout one party communist Vietnam, a U.S.-based rights group said Tuesday, citing a “surprisingly high number” of deaths in custody involving young detainees.

Abuses in 44 of Vietnam’s 58 provinces have been documented in a four-year study up to July this year, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said, calling on the authoritarian government in Hanoi to take action to end the “human rights crisis.”

“Police severely abused people in custody in every region of Vietnam,” said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at HRW, in the report entitled “Public Insecurity: Deaths in Custody and Police Brutality in Vietnam.”

“The Vietnam government has a human rights crisis on its hands and should investigate and start holding abusive police accountable.”

In the cases of deaths in custody, police frequently provided causes “that strained credulity and gave the appearance of systematic cover-ups,” said the report, which draws on HRW’s review of abuse cases reported by state media, independent bloggers and citizen journalists, and foreign news agencies.

“A surprisingly large number of people—many of them young and healthy in their 20s and 30s—allegedly died from medical problems in custody,” the report said.

Loved and Hated, Former Premier of Thailand Is Erased From Textbook


By THOMAS FULLERSEPT. 15, 2014

BANGKOK — His legacy is inseparable from the past decade of political tumult in Thailand, but high school students will not find the name Thaksin Shinawatra in the history textbooks that the country’s military junta recently ordered schools to use.

Mr. Thaksin’s name was scrubbed from the book by the Ministry of Education, said the textbook’s author, Thanom Anarmwat.

“The officials at the ministry just deleted it, cut it,” he said.

Mr. Thaksin (pronounced TAHK-sin) elicits love or hate in Thailand and not much in between.

To members of the Bangkok establishment who supported the May military coup, which ousted an elected government backed by Mr. Thaksin, he is seen as venal, corrupt and, perhaps most of all, a threat to their power.

To his supporters, Mr. Thaksin was the first politician in Thailand to focus on the needs of voters outside Bangkok and gain their allegiance by delivering universal health care, microloans and more efficient government services.

The generals, who have seized power twice in the past decade, say they are not taking sides. But in addition to abolishing elections and banning political activities, they have purged the bureaucracy of those seen to be loyal to Mr. Thaksin.

The Education Ministry’s order last month that all public high schools use the new textbook is part of a broader effort to instill patriotism in Thai youth. The junta has ordered a new school curriculum that underlines what are seen to be the unifying themes of the monarchy and the glories of the ancient kingdoms of Siam, as Thailand was formerly known.

There are numerous examples, especially in Asia, of government deletions of undesirable facts and faces from official history. In China, history textbooks do not mention the military crackdown on the 1989 protests in Tiananmen Square, and many young people know little or nothing about it. In North Korea, the uncle of Kim Jong-un, the country’s leader, was edited out of state television footage after the uncle was executed last year.

Thai history textbooks have very little coverage of the leftist movements of the 1960s and 1970s and the government’s efforts to suppress them.

But in today’s Thailand — plugged into the world, freewheeling and linked through social media technologies beyond the government’s control — it is unclear to what degree the military can erase the society’s deep divisions from the public’s consciousness.

“This is very much the usual practice of Thai elite,” said Charnvit Kasetsiri, former rector of the prestigious Thammasat University. “But it will be difficult because of social media and because it is not that easy to control the thinking of the masses, especially educated youth.”

Chris Baker, a leading authority on Thai history, sees the historical censorship as misguided.

“Snipping history like this is straight out of the handbook of totalitarian regimes,” he said. “I think doing this in a society that has become as open as Thailand is counterproductive, because people will notice the absence.”
