(14 Nov 2019) Cambodia’s exiled oppositon leader arrived in Indonesia’s capital on Thursday.
Sam Rainsy said he will stay in Jakara for a few days and thanked the country’s lawmakers and the government for the invitation.
Meanwhile, a Cambodian government statement Wednesday night said it had fully defeated what it called an attempted coup d’etat by “rebel” Sam Rainsy.
It said that public order and security had been firmly assured throughout the country.
Sam Rainsy had said that he and exiled colleagues from his banned Cambodia National Rescue Party would return Saturday to lead a mass movement to unseat Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has held power for 34 years.
Hun Sen’s government barred Rainsy’s entry and advised airlines and neighboring countries to block his travel.
