Hun Sen, the prime minister of Cambodia, boasted Friday about trolling a conference call held by the opposition party two weeks ago, repeatedly seizing the presentation screen and trolled their chat, the Associated Press reports.
Sen’s political party, the Cambodian People’s Party, denied Sen had invaded the call of former members of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, a strong opposition party Sen had courts dissolve in 2017. However, video of the call had been making its rounds on the internet, and Sen boasted about it during a media event for the opening of a COVID vaccination campaign for children.
Sen can be seen in the video interrupting the speakers by taking over the screen. In the chat, Sen repeatedly complained that people made fun of him even though he was attempting to unify the nation. Sen apparently got the access code to the Zoom call when it was distributed by one of the participants to people interested in opposition to Sen.
“But morally, when people sneak a peak into our affairs, we are not happy,” Long Ry, a call organizer, said. “In politics, I think we should employ honest and straightforward methods, and not take advantages of others by secretly sneaking into their affairs.”
