>104 people become [wasteful] personal advisors for Cambodian PM


Some people say Hun Sen (2nd left) needs so many advisors because he is too dumb. His previous advisors include the current president of South Korea, Mr. Lee Myung-bak (2nd right).

PHNOM PENH, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) — Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni has signed a royal decree appointing 104 people as personal advisors to Prime Minister Hun Sen, English-Khmer language newspaper the Cambodia Daily said Saturday.

The advisors have ranks equal to those of undersecretary of state, secretary of state and senior ministers, Cheam Yeap, lawmaker and member of the standing committee of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), was quoted as saying.

“When the term is finished, personal advisors must be dissolved. So Hun Sen must appoint new advisors for the new five-year term,” he said.

Hun Sen remained as premier, as the fourth government of the kingdom was just established in September.

According to the royal decree, the new group of personal advisors run the gamut of profession and experience, and include former commune and provincial officials, TV news anchors and directors, military officers and bankers.
