Cambodian opposition sues election body over disputed election results
PHNOM PENH (AFP) - Cambodia's opposition said on Thursday that it had filed a lawsuit against the kingdom's poll authorities over strongman Prime Minister Hun Sen's disputed election win.
The Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) accused three top National Election Committee (NEC) officials and their accomplices of faking voter names on the electoral roll, using "fake election results" and abusing the election law.
"These are criminal offenses," senior CNRP official Kuy Bunroeun told AFP after the lawsuit was filed at the Phnom Penh Municipal court.
"We are filing a complaint to find justice for the people," he added. "The results are not acceptable."
