A Facebook user behind a slew of leaks seemingly aimed at damaging the opposition has released more material, publishing a letter from a senior CNRP official requesting that the party dissolve its executive committee in Preah Sihanouk province because of “nepotism”.
The user, Seiha, who has leaked online a raft of covertly recorded phone conversations featuring opposition figures, posted over the weekend a request from Cambodia National Rescue Party official Prince Sisowath Thomico sent to party leader Kem Sokha on March 11.
In the letter, Thomico, who is head of the party’s working group in Sihanoukville, explains that during his absence provincial officials had revised the makeup of the lower level district committees.
