Cambodia told not to prosecute UN staffer


UNITED NATIONS, United States: The UN has told the Cambodian government that a local UN employee charged in connection with a sex scandal involving an opposition lawmaker is immune from prosecution, a spokesman said Wednesday. The UN rights office staffer, Sally Soen, was charged on Monday with being an accomplice to an attempted bribe of a woman who was asked to deny an affair with the opposition member. Rights groups say the legal proceedings are the latest attempt by Prime Minister Hun Sen to undercut a resurgent opposition trying to end his 31-year grip on power.
