Local authorities set to tighten security, thwart ‘coup’ plots

The Ministry of Interior has instructed all municipal and provincial governors to tighten security and constantly monitor the activities of “coup” plotters in areas under their jurisdiction.

The order came as Sam Rainsy, the “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), released a new video clip on Facebook reiterating his promised return on November 9.
