Local authorities in Cambodia have begun ejecting commune-level members of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) from their jobs and destroying all visible signs of the country’s largest opposition party. The purge follows a decision by the Supreme Court to outlaw the party for allegedly planning a “colour revolution” against Prime Minister Hun Sen. CNRP leader Sam Rainsy, who is in self-imposed exile, said that with an election due next year voters would not accept the “hellish decision of the hellish court that followed the hellish government of Hun Sen.”
