Cambodia Looks to Put Its Rice on the World’s Plate

Women working in a rice paddy in Phnom Penh. Cambodia’s rice industry has undergone a transformation,
and the product can now be found in high-end grocery markets in the West. Luc Forsyth for The New York Times

By LUKE HUNT, The New York Times, JULY 29, 2014

KBAL GOH, Cambodia — For as long as Cambodian rice farmers can remember, their product has had an unsavory reputation. Tough, dirty and unmilled, it was impossible to cook evenly, and even farmers traded it as pig feed in exchange for cash or better-quality rice from Vietnam or Thailand.

Even while Cambodia recovered from decades of war and other areas of agriculture flourished, rice production languished, a national embarrassment in a country where 80 percent of the population works in paddies. In 2009, Cambodia exported just 12,613 tons of milled rice, putting it at the bottom of the global heap.

But as Thailand, one of the world’s largest rice exporters, struggles with political instability, Cambodian exports have improved along with their quality; the rice can now be found in high-end grocery markets in the West. Last year, Cambodia was the world’s fifth-largest exporter of rice and the second-biggest exporter of premium jasmine rice. Sales of milled rice abroad reached 378,856 tons.

No one knows this transformation better than Bun Chan Tony. His six hectares, or about 15 acres, earn him $6,000 a year, substantially more than in the past.

“When the rains come and there is a lot of water, we plant rice. When it’s drier, we plant corn, but rice is a staple and people must have it,” said Mr. Tony, although he said he would prefer to grow more corn than rice, which he says requires more work.

KI reader, Bun Thoeun: Perspective on CPP and CNRP



There have been sharp criticism on Sam Rainsy after he went along with Hun Sen to amend the constitution in the sole purpose of breaking the political impasse after each General election.

Realistically, how many democratic countries in the world can get the 2/3 majority after the general election?

Very rare, almost none.

For example: In the United States, how many times that one party had won the election by 75% or more ?

It must be so few. I guess maybe 10%. So, if the United adopted such 2/3 majority like Cambodia, the United States would have been screw up after each election like Cambodia too.

In the spirit of trying to prevent Cambodia from having the sure political impasse after each election and also to give the opposition party a fair chance to win the election and being able to form the government, Sam Rainsy has initiated that change from the 2/3 to 50 + 1.

Here is an hypothetical scenario:

If Cambodia still keeps the 2/3 majority and the CNRP won the election less than the 2/3 majority.

The CNRP cannot form the government. Therefore, it needs the cooperation from the CPP.

As we know, the CPP will cooperate but ask the CNRP to let them (CPP) control all important departments such as Defense, Finance, Foreign Affair, Interior, etc….

The demand that the CNRP cannot accept.

Middle East Israeli fire kills refugees in Gaza UN school


At least 19 die in Jabaliya attack condemned by UN agency as "source of universal shame" that breaks international law.
AJ: 30 Jul 2014
Israeli shells have struck a UN school in the Gaza Strip, killing at least 19 people and wounding scores more, after Israeli ground troops made a significant push into the territory.

Wednesday’s shelling of the Jabaliya refugee camp was the second time in a week that a UN school sheltering hundreds of homeless Palestinians had been hit, with the latest violence pushing the Gaza death toll over 1,280.

Christopher Gunness, the UNRWA's spokesman, said the attack was a "source of universal shame" and blamed Israeli forces.

"We have visited the site and gathered evidence. We have analysed fragments, examined craters and other damage. Our initial assessment is that it was Israeli artillery that hit our school, in which 3,300 people had sought refuge.

"I condemn in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces. I call on the international community to take deliberate international political action to put an immediate end to the continuing carnage."

KRT’s second sub-trial to begin

The first hearing of the Khmer Rouge tribunal’s Case 002/02 was to be held today, marking the start of the sub-trial in which the gravest charges levied against the Democratic Kampuchea regime’s senior-most leaders will be heard.

With Case 002/01 – the first sub-trial in the court’s case against Khmer Rouge leaders Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan – having wrapped up last year and a verdict due on August 7, the court is to begin today to hammer out the logistics of hearing much of the remainder of the Case 002 indictment.

While Case 002/01 drew criticism for its relatively narrow focus, the scope of the case beginning today will include the allegations most commonly associated with the regime in the popular discourse.

Charges relating to genocide against the Vietnamese and the Cham, security centres such as the notorious S-21, the persecution of Buddhists and forced marriages and rape – among others – will all be on the table.

Much of the hearing, according to court legal communications officer Lars Olsen, will concern itself with setting that table.

“The parties will be invited to submit their views on the proposed witnesses from various parties. They will be discussing the sequencing of the trial; that is, when the different allegations will be heard.

Vietnam shouldn’t postpone legal fight against China till tomorrow: expert

Swiss lawyer Pierre Shifferli: As a lawyer, I see that China behaves as a robber. So Vietnam should file a lawsuit to an international court to demonstrate to the world that it has laws for itself.

China’s Haiyang Shiyou 981 oil rig became a hot topic during an international symposium held in Vietnam on Saturday despite the fact that drilling platform was moved out of the Southeast Asian country’s waters earlier this month. 

More than 30 scholars and experts from many countries in the world together with a number of local pundits partook in the “Legal issues regarding the incident of China’s placement of oil rig Haiyang Shiyou 981 in Vietnam’s Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf” conference in Ho Chi Minh City.

“The conference aims to create a forum for scholars and experts in the region and in the world to exchange views on the legal issues relating to China’s placement of the Haiyang Shiyou 981 oil rig in the East Sea and provide satisfactory solutions for relevant parties to settle the problems and eventually settle conflict to preserve the East Sea as an area of peace, cooperation, and prosperity,” the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law and the Vietnam Lawyers’ Association, the co-organizers, said.

Most of the attendees said that China did not respect international law through its oil rig deployment and Vietnam should continue its legal fight against its big neighbor in order to assert the country’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos.

Many expressed concerns that China could deploy other oil rigs to the waters again and advised the Southeast Asian country to prepare for all possible legal actions.

Prime Minister Hun Sen leaves the National Assembly in Phnom Penh on Monday after a meeting
with Sam Rainsy. Heng Chivoan

The Phnom Penh Post, Wed, 30 July 2014

Progress towards amending the constitution and election law – key prerequisites of a deal to bring the opposition party into parliament – hit a snag yesterday, with Cambodia National Rescue Party president Sam Rainsy saying the next steps depend on the ruling party.

Three working group meetings were held at the National Assembly aimed at amending the rules of parliament, the election law and the constitution.

The result today varied from one group to another,” Rainsy said. “The working group on the National Assembly has completed its work. The draft amendment has been completed. It will be submitted for approval when the National Assembly meets.

But the two working groups on the constitution and the election law have not moved forward very significantly,” he added.

The cross-party meetings yesterday followed the announcement on Monday that the president of the rights group Licadho, Pung Chhiv Kek, had accepted an offer to become the crucial ninth member of a reformed National Election Committee (NEC).

Vietnam’s Communists Urged to Sue China

China, Vietnam oil rig dispute, near Paracel Islands

Trung Nguyen, VOA, July 29, 2014

Dozens of prominent members of Vietnam's Communist Party (VCP), voicing concerns over China’s actions in the South China Sea, are calling on their leaders to file a legal case against Beijing with the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea.

The petition, obtained by VOA's Vietnamese service, has been sent to the Central Committee, the highest authority within the VCP. The move comes weeks after China moved a controversial oil rig away from disputed waters near the Paracel Islands, also claimed by Vietnam.

In an open letter, the senior members wrote that Hanoi has paid a high price for conceding too much to China’s demands.

“The more Vietnam steps back, the more China presses ahead,” they wrote, adding that only a legal move can prove Vietnam's legitimacy over the disputed waters.

Khmer Rouge defence wants government officials to testify

dpa, 30-Jul-14 04:33PM

Phnom Penh (dpa) -- Members of the Cambodian government should be called to testify in the case against two leaders of the former Khmer Rouge regime, the defence argued Wednesday.

A lawyer for Nuon Chea said those who were also former Khmer Rouge members would be able to provide "important testimony."

"Everyone is equal before the law," Soun Visal told the court.

If granted, the motion could call into question whether the government would continue to cooperate with the special UN-backed tribunal. It also raises uncomfortable questions about the role of current officials during the brutal regime.

The lawyer specifically named National Assembly president Heng Samrin, Senate president Chea Sim and senator Ouk Bunchoeun.

Prime Minister Hun Sen, himself a former Khmer Rouge cadre, has repeatedly said the tribunal can only try senior leaders of the former regime.

Police shot dead a mentally ill man killing six-year boy

The Cambodia Herald, 30-Jul-14 03:36PM

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) – The police shot dead a mentally ill man who had killed his six-year old nephew in Tbong Khmom province.

Police shot dead Him Sokna, 22, when he attacked one of the police officer while he tried to escape after he killed his nephew in Kork commune of Punhea Kraek district, said Meach Min, a local police officer.

The suspect tied up his nephew, Pha Chharan, to a pole in a house and attacked the victim before he was gunned down, Min said.

The victim was seriously injured in neck, hand and thigh and he was hospitalized but the doctor could not save his life.

On laws, CNRP in familiar fight

Ou Virak
Laignee Barron The Phnom Penh Post
Wed, 30 July 2014

Long beyond the blaze of the campaign trail, the opposition party has continued promising to push its seven-point platform once lawmakers take their National Assembly seats.

But before the CNRP can battle for its $1.5 billion social and economic reform agenda on the assembly floor, it will first have to overturn regulations that, left as standing, would render the party effectively toothless.

In theory, the July 22 deal that ended the political deadlock appears to divvy assembly power between parties, splitting equally the chairmanships of the 10 commissions and electing an opposition vice president to counter the ruling party’s assembly president.

But according to Ou Virak, Cambodian Center for Human Rights, chairman, regulation loopholes rig the system in the ruling party’s favour.

“The president [of the National Assembly] has all the discretionary power, and unless that is changed, it will continue to limit the role of the opposition,” he said.

Corruption, aid and the new political outlook

By David Boyle, Koam Chanrasmey and Griff Tapper
The Phnom Penh Post, 2014-07-29 19:19

Sophal Ear, one of the foremost Cambodian political economists, sat down with State of Play to discuss his theories on how foreign aid has weakened governance in Cambodia and how these lessons might apply to political developments taking place now.

A former refugee who worked for the World Bank and United Nations, Ear completed a PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, and put the magnifying glass to development in his book Aid Dependence in Cambodia: How Foreign Assistance Undermines Democracy.

Ear is highly critical of error-ridden foreign aid projects in Cambodia that have taken little account of local perspectives while treating the country like a testing ground.

Wages do not compute: ILO

A garment worker holds a placard in front of the Ministry of Labour during a mass protest in Phnom Penh
earlier this year to demand a $160 minimum wage for the industry. Heng Chivoan

Sean Teehan, The Phnom Penh Post
Wed, 30 July 2014

NGOs say the Ministry of Labour’s use of its own method for determining the garment industry’s minimum wage is risking a repeat of the tensions that exploded in violent protests in January, when authorities killed at least five people.

More than six months after the Labour Ministry commissioned the International Labour Organization to help set a formula to calculate the garment sector’s minimum wage, the advice has not been heeded, ILO national project coordinator Tun Sophorn said.

“For this year, [the Labour Ministry] will use their own way in terms of minimum wage setting,” Sophorn said.

The minimum wage in the garment industry stands at $100 per month.

A 10-day nationwide strike to demand $160 ended abruptly on January 3 when government forces opened fire on unruly demonstrators in Phnom Penh, killing at least five people. Afterwards, ministry officials told unions and international buyers that the ILO would assist them in coming up with a steady formula to annually determine the minimum wage.

The Nation/ANN, 29-Jul-14 08:50 AM

BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN) -- Cambodia supports the Thai junta's campaign to confront head-on the country's myriad problems "on the path to full democracy", the head of a visiting military mission said Monday.

Deputy Prime Minister General Tea Banh, who is also Cambodia's defence minister and led the delegation of senior commanders, said Thailand under the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) was addressing the country's problems in a clear manner and with the aim of restoring peace and order.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has a good understanding of the Thai political situation, particularly the NCPO's attempts to solve various problems, Tea Banh said.

The visiting Cambodians said they hoped the two countries would still be good neighbours.

The Thai Defence Ministry's guests included the chiefs of Cambodia's three military branches as well as Lt-General Hun Manet, the eldest son of Hun Sen.

International experts call for ASEAN unity to settle sea disputes

Viet Nam News/ANN, 29-Jul-14

HO CHI MINH CITY (Viet Nam News/ANN) — Exploitation of seabed oil and gas resources is one of several major contentious issues complicating the tense South China Sea (East Sea) situation, a retired US diplomat said at an international conference held at Ton Duc Thang University in HCM city over the weekend.

David Brown, an independent researcher, citing US Energy Information Administration data, said that oil and gas resources in the South China Sea were equivalent to 11 billion barrels of oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of gas.

However, in November 2012, the China National Offshore Oil Company estimated that the area holds even more, about 125 billion barrels of oil and 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in undiscovered resources.

China, which faces an increasing demand for oil and gas, consumed 3.5 billion barrels of oil in 2011.

By 2035, China's demand for oil and other liquid fuels is expected to grow by 70 per cent to six billion barrels annually and will be slightly greater than the US, according to British Petroleum's (BP) annual statistical review.

Tourists to Cambodia's Preah Vihear heritage site up 53 pct in first quarter

Xinhua, 29-Jul-14

PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- Cambodia's world heritage Preah Vihear temple greeted 63,610 local and foreign visitors in the first half of 2014, up 53 percent over the same period last year, a report from the Preah Vihear provincial tourism department showed Tuesday.

The temple welcomed about 56,870 local visitors and 6,740 foreigners during the January-June period this year, up 56 percent and 28 percent respectively, compared with the same period last year, the report said.

 You Sovan, deputy chief of the Preah Vihear provincial tourism department, attributed the growth to the temple's world heritage status and good security at the temple.

"I think that the temple can be Cambodia's 2nd largest tourist destination in the future after the Angkor Wat world heritage site, " he said.

Preah Vihear, a Hindu temple, is situated on the top of a 525- meter cliff in the Dangrek Mountains bordering Thailand.

Meanwhile, dear friends of the freedom, let our minds not be trapped in this area alone about who will become what and to do what. But let's also awaken to the one thing that we all seem to neglect and not bring up more often to the spotlight in our discourse.

That one thing is the urgent fact of the creepy but indefinite danger to our national ID posed by our next door the Yuon whose ambition of expansionism is a real and immediate threat against us which is undeniably a crime against humanity - by its true definition and real result.

Therefore, dear friends, let's focus more intensely on this threat by bringing it up more often at home or in our conversation and discourse through internet to alarm the Khmer present and future leaders and all Khmers at home and abroad the absolute truth of this great and present danger.

If we neglect and continue to live like frogs then the creepy movement of the Yuon's ill ambition may succeed. If that happens and it passes the point of no return we may die standing. So let's keep our minds be more aware of this fact and act upon it by bringing more discussion on this. Many thanks & God bless.

Personal opinion from KI reader, Bun Thoeun

Personal opinion:

If Ms. Pung Chhiv Kek was not forced out (Hun Sen will tell her to act sick and get out of the NEC) of the NEC, the probability or chance for the CNRP to win this upcoming election will be extremely high or certain.

A new problem would arise after the CNRP won the election: Hun Sen will not relinquish his power.

I would like to elaborate on how to make Hun Sen transfer the power to the CNRP.

The CNRP should learn from its past experience after it made all peaceful demonstrations against Hun Sen – Hun Sen Euy Chos Chenh Touv - and got fruitless result, frustrating and alienating many of its supporters.

The key for success is to prepare FROM NOW.

Here are the steps that the CNRP should do after the CNRP OFFICIALLY won the next election and Hun Sen refuses to step down.

I said yesterday that it would require at least 100,000 determined Khmer people, particularly the youths, to make peaceful demonstration demanding for Hun Sen to respect the people’s wills. People have voted Hun Sen out.
