The three-day demonstration held by the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) in Phnom Penh ended without any violence on October 25.

Starting on October 23, the opposition party’s protest aimed to submit a petition that asked the UN and the signatories of the 1991 Paris Peace Agreement for Cambodia to intervene and review irregularities in the country’s fifth legislature election in July, as well as ensure the validity of the agreement.

CNRP President Sam Rainsy on October 25 led a march of protestors to the embassies of Australia, Russia , Japan , Indonesia and China to hand over the petition.

Earlier, on October 23 the protestors marched to the United Nations Human Rights office in Cambodia to deliver the petition. On October 24 they also went to the embassies of France , the United Kingdom and the United States.

The Cambodian Interior Ministry allowed the CNRP to stage the demonstration from October 23 at the park during daytime only, and groups of up to 1,000 only were permitted. However, about 30,000 protestors joined the gathering.

About 1,000 policemen and military personnel were deployed to ensure order and security during the protest.-VNA
