After threatening to sue Sacrava for drawing political satirical caricatures of Mr. Hor Namhong, Mr. David Meas (pictured), presumably under instructions from Mr. Hor Namhong, is threatening to sue Khmerization. Khmerization believes that this kind of litigation threat is an intimidation against Khmerization into silence and an infringement on Khmerization’s freedom of speech. The articles published at Khmerization are published and posted at The Cambodia Daily website, The Phnom Penh Post website, Everyday.com.kh website etc. Unless David Meas and Hor Namhong can successfully intimidate these websites to remove the articles in question from their sites, Khmerization has no obligation to remove them from this site. Also, I wish to inform Mr. David Meas that I have no obligation to elect any lawyer to represent me in this matter as has been requested by you. And thank you Mr. David Meas and Mr. Hor Namhong for giving this blog prominence.
The following is a letter from Mr. David Meas to Khmerization:
I am acting as French counsel for Foreign Minister of Cambodia, Mr. Hor Namhong.
I have noted that on your web site, named Khmerization.blogpost.com, the following articles are advertised, namely:
The content of those articles could be sanctioned by a court of law, as being in particular libelous, slanderous and defamatory for Mr. Hor Namhong.
In this respect, I draw your attention to the fact that in a 1991 judgement, the Paris courts ruled that similar allegations were defamatory for Mr. Hor Namhong.
Therefore I put you on notice, on behalf of Mr. Hor Namhong, to immediately take all measures so that those articles, and other articles which would be in the same vein, be deleted from your web site.
Mr. Hor Namhong obviously reserves all his rights against you and any other participants or contributors to this matter. Please indicate me the name of your attorney-at-law in this matter.
Attorney at Law
