In Cambodia, the case of ABC’s legal violation become controversy in the face of power abusing and political bias.
Autocratic regime has always used vertical power and such direct intervention resulted in corruptions, ineffective public servicing, and authoritarianism. When ABC private ambulance violated the Health Department’s procedures and regulations encouraged a director to implement them by taking that ambulance into custody waiting for court’s decision. Hence, one ABC Radio’s sympathizer complained in Hun Sen’s facebook page made him to call in show of ABC Radio and demanded to return the ambulance including a promise to provide two more. In the meantime, Hun Sen threatened to fire that director.
This practice is absolutely indicating the nature of autocracy.
