Cambodia’s Constitution

What the head of the Anti-Corruption Unit says

Who is above the Constitution?

Let’s argue that the ACU chief is right that he ” can tap anyone ” . No, sir. Unless you have very strong evidence to justify taping of private phone conversations.

Extra marital affairs are evidence for phone taping.

Among the most justifiable reasons for taping are: terrorism, international crimes, corruption of high level officials in govt.

But even these reasons would have to be backed with very strong evidence .

Unless we can say : so what if I, the chief of ACU can tap anyone I want.

No, sir.

Unless we can say: every citizen is a suspect or enemy of the state?

is that the state we want to live in?
