What interests Hun Sen is to keep power, to stay in power. Hun Sen is at the head but also a prisoner of a system. Actually we have to reform the system and this requires a strong political will, it requires some sacrifices on the part of some people.

But many Cambodians do not believe peace is possible without justice.
