Vietnam Embassy Says No to Father to Visit Tim Sakhorn

Wednesday, October 3, 2007 Translated from Khmer by Socheata from KI Media Son Chhay: VN allows Monk Tim Sakhorn’s father to meet him SRP MP Son Chhay said on Monday that Vietnam has authorized Monk Tim Sakhorn’s father to visit him in jail in Vietnam. Son Chhay said that he met with Nguyen Van Vu, the advisor of the Vietnamese embassy in Phnom Penh last Friday, and the Vietnamese embassy promised that it will allow Tim Thieng, Monk Tim Sakhorn’s father, to visit his son in jail. However, Trinh Ba Cam, the spokesman of the Vietnamese embassy, said that, according to the Vietnamese law, Monk Tim Sakhorn’s family cannot visit him in jail because he is still under investigation. Trinh Ba Cam said that Monk Tim Sakhorn’s father can visit him only after his sentence. Trinh Ba Cam indicated that Monk Tim Sakhorn is in good health and the news about his torture was an exaggeration.
