PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA: Cambodia’s royal palace officials has strongly denied a letter distributed to the press by former king Norodom Sihanouk indicating that his son, King Norodom Sihamoni, might abdicate.

The letter has caused a stir in Cambodia, which will have a national election in July.

In copies of the letter, handwritten in French, Sihanouk speaks of a looming crisis for the Cambodian monarchy “in the near or far future”, using the French words ‘chances’ and ‘deposee’

The palace did not say what the letter actually meant, while Sihanouk remained silent. (ANN/ AsiaNews)
