Facing arrest, Sam Rainsy says he will return to Cambodia Saturday

The two Cambodians who include an asylum seeker were detained on Monday night and were to be deported to their home country before an appeal was filed on Tuesday

Hun Sen's government deployed troops along its borders in response to Rainsy's announcement of his planned return.

On Sept. 24, he used social media to appeal to the Cambodian armed forces to support the people in overthrowing Prime Minister Hun Sen on November 9, the date of his scheduled return that coincides with independence day.

The government of Prime Minister Hun Sen has accused members of the dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) of plotting a coup and said they will be arrested if they try to enter the country.

The opposition politicians had said they hoped to return accompanied by a mass of followers, including from the huge community of Cambodian migrant workers in Thailand.

"We know that over 300 overseas Cambodians have already signed up, and are also on their way to Thailand or already there to join us to reach the border".

His return could be thwarted by Thailand, whose prime minister said on Wednesday he would not be allowed entry en route to Cambodia.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said he could not allow interference into the internal affairs of Cambodia, a fellow member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Last week, immigration police in Thailand deported the opposition party's vice president, Mu Sochua, when she arrived at Bangkok's global airport.

Supporters of Kem Sokha, leader of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, stand outside the Appeal Court during a bail hearing for the detained opposition leader in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on September 26, 2017.


"There are only three possibilities about the fate of a political leader in Cambodia".

Mu Sochua did not appear in court, and fled overseas instead.

"We are risking our lives".

However, Sochua emphasized that the plan will be realized again, based on the determination of the party and the people behind them.

"The Cambodian government has sent a request for all ASEAN member countries to arrest and deport Mu Sochua to Cambodia".

Sam Rainsy's party was touted as posing a threat to Hun Sen's ruling Cambodian People's Party in last year's general election, but it was dissolved ahead of the polls by the courts, which are viewed as doing the government's bidding.

On Monday, Malaysian authorities detained two Cambodian opposition activists while they were waiting to board a flight to Thailand.

She is one of several colleagues who are planning to return with Sam Rainsy, despite Cambodia's government also declaring them unwelcome.
