On 04 December 2007, Prince Thomico (pictured) indicated that there are several national leaders who want to see Prince Norodom Ranariddh stop being involved in politics so that he can return back to Cambodia.Prince Thomico’s declaration was published in today’s edition of the Rasmei Kampuchea newspaper. The prince said that Prince Ranariddh has two choices to return back to Cambodia: (1) he returns through the Funcinpec door, or (2) he quits politics and returns back home as a high-ranking royal family member.Prince Thomico said that he heard information from a number of national leaders who want to see Prince Ranariddh returning back home as a royal family member, and he would become a supreme advisor to the king. Prince Thomico said that Prince Ranariddh already knew about this issue, but that he did not provide a response yet because he wants to think about it first.Muth Chantha, NRP spokesman, reacted to the choices presented by Prince Thomico, saying that Prince Ranariddh would not occupy such an empty position (as supreme advisor to the king). Muth Chantha said that this position is like a statue position or a symbolic position only. He said that Prince Ranariddh still maintains his political stance.Regarding the proposal to have Prince Ranariddh returning through the Funcinpec door, Muth Chantha told Rasmei Kampuchea that, regarding the Funcinpec problem, he stopped talking about it long ago. Muth Chantha said that the prince no longer think about the Funcinpec anymore, and whoever wants to force him to return through Funcinpec’s door has bad intention because the Funcinpec already lost its own sovereignty.However, Prince Thomico believes that Funcinpec remains the only door for Prince Ranariddh to return back home to politics as usual. Prince Thomico said that he will try to meet Prince Ranariddh in Malaysia, but that up to now, Prince Ranariddh did not agree to this meeting. Prince Ranariddh told Prince Thomico: “Not yet, the timing is not there yet.”
