the c and r b with came. so ha, who is facing trial in the country syringe? you're welcome. now human rights watch says that this trial is politically motivated and is about ensuring no one can challenge prime minister one sin at the ballot box. do you agree? yes, i do agree because the tire of me stuck on so car is just a pretext, was the pretext dude is over the only credible opposition party. so this opposition party the see in our feet that you're co founded with them soccer does not exist anymore. effective nika, border does not have an opposition and prime minister once, and has already been in power for about 36 years. does that make once an a dictator? yes, sir. because sir cambodia has a gun back duty period and
a leg and the comedy surgeon where there was only one party. it is a one party state. actually, it is not only a one party rule, but a one man, a rule. not since are your party, the c and r p was banned in 2017. as recert, cambodia does not have an opposition party. do you see that changing in the near term? as low as a mr. hutton, san ina power. there is. liter cheney at chance offer any change because now mr. hutton, san zera party controlled so 100 percent off of the seats, are abner parliament and the east no rear opposition. party. it is. we are fighting for the restoration of the only opposition party, which you use a to our control,
nearly half of the parliament before it's a arbitrary dissolution. so you have one party rule horn sir, and appears to be clinging on to power. what chance do you have or does the opposition have of restoring democracy to cambodia? it is sir the popular will because sir d a popular discontent isa growing, especially among the usa. those who are under $36.00 a year older. they have not seen any leader, but we still hadn't sand. so the same men in power for 16 for 36 years a. it's a bit too long. it is why the vast majority of the cambodian people want to. busy do see new leaders you face and a more democratic regime, but we're able to express this discontent when the rule is so absolute. how do you
see this situation changing? we hope that the international community, including the european union, including germany, real poacher for free and fair election in cambodia because the international community donor countries are such as the germany or do have a leverage. here to our pusher, mr. hutton saying that to organize a rear election so that the people can express themselves in a free way. have you seen any signals so far that countries like germany are using that influence to bring about change in cambodia? yes, sir. we have, i seen a german de german ambassador in cambodia visiting the gum, so car when he was in detention and he's still not
a free. he cannot leave the country. so germany and the european union continue to our press to pressure. we sell homes and to open up, he's a regime and especially to respect human rights in a more convincing manner. this should lead to the organization of free and fair election. and then we definitely will have a change antibiotic change in cambodia are one of talk a bit about opposition. unity i mean, or your colleague kim. so car with whom you go funded the keyboard to national rescue party the c and r p. he's facing jill time in cambodia while you are in exile in france, has thus led to differences between your 2. no, because we continued to share the same goal. good. same goal is to bring about a change in a change in the regime a democratic change. this is the common goal,
and we hatley continue to abide by the same strategy. the strategy become and saturday is to push for free and fair election so that we can have a democratic changer in a peaceful route in a non violent manner. but now we have to consider some practical tactical approaches. so, ah, how can we or pusher, or do have a free and fair election? these isa just a minor differences that we may have or, but within the open, you shouldn't be continued to share the same goal or at the same strategy. you tried to girl return to can border enter into 19, but couldn't to was stopped in thailand. a do have plans to go back? yes, sir. when data isa any, or open any d that i d? will you send dieters who are now in exile?
can go back, they will to do sole sam ramsey reliever over the timing, but thank you so much for joining us today, sir. thank you. ah. hong kong is calling thousands of hamsters and other small pets. after a covert 19 outbreak was traced to a pet shop in the city. or shop worker was among 2 people infected with the delta bad and which authorities believe good have been boss to them from hamsters. 11 of the ferry animals tested positive and the bad shrub. the animal gall has been ordered out of precaution, but it's also prompted a strong reaction against it. this is the pet shop where an employee and several hamsters tested positive for cove. it 19 help authority say they can't rule out any more to human transmission. week nights with the possibly dead i'm. the shopkeepers was in fact i'm was,
are actually infected from the am the hamsters. only the little pause pet shop seems to have been affected. but authorities now want to cold thousands of hamsters rabbits inching chillers across hong kong. they've also asked people who bought pads from little balls in december to give them back. so they can be put down the decision has sparked outrage, a petition to stop the coal gather to more than 20000 signatures on the 1st day. some experts say the calling is a sensible response, but say the fear of infection in homes was overblown. millions of people around the world have been infected by south come to millions of people around the world, have pets, and there has been, no cases are proven of pitts transmitting infection to other humans. the same theoretical risk is there, but it just,
it just doesn't happen. the hong kong pursues a so called 0 covert strategy that keeps cases low, but as left many wondering at what price and the devil's phoebe kong has more on the reaction in hong kong. the must calling has about criticism and outreach among animal welfare group and patch owners urging that government to seek for alternatives such a score and team. critics are also concerned that such a measure what even prompt more people to abandon the pat. it's by criticism government and i says and some local experts back that the sessions acuity and them also, they say it's nearly impossible to isolate and upset every single ham. so one by one while preventing cross infection among the animals. and jeremy for more is epidemiologist. professor ben calling here from the school of public health at the university of hong kong professor, calling. what is the risk of animal to human transmission advice of us of coven 19?
we think that the risk of a human getting infected from the pat it's very, very low. it may not be 0, but it's very, very low. on the other hand, as a number of documented occasions when humans have passed, in fact, like when you miss our past infection onto their pets. and in this case is not clear which way the transmission occurred, whether it's from hamster to human human to hamster. but we do know the hamsters have been infected. so her, the pet owners be what is that the pets could transmit the corona about us to them? well, i don't think so. i think it's one of many different risks that we face in most parts of the way we know on the corners around cove, it is around we could get infected in many different places. and now we can, we, can we a little bit about past, but i don't think it would be a major risk. so given the hong kong order to carla, some 2000 hamsters and other small animals, would you say that the territory has gone too far in implementing the 0 corporate
policy? well, i think the government and now looking at every possible risk of cobra getting in because they're very, very keen on getting case numbers down to 0 and keeping them as ever. and that means, but if, as presumed to be at risk of infection in the inbound hamsters in the future, then we need to be aware of that risk and try to minimize it mitigates it. but i think it is one of the limitations of a 0. cobit approach and now that we have vaccines available, i think we can look at maybe relaxing some policies. but in hong kong, the, the government still very, very strict about target. progressive calling from the school of public health at the university of hong kong. thank you. so much for joining us today. and that's it for today as well as more on our website. we'll see you tomorrow, bye. mm.
