Police are looking for the people responsible for creating and posting online an audio clip in which Prime Minister Hun Sen appeared to admit his party had lost last month’s national election, an official said Wednesday. In a clip posted on Facebook, Mr. Hun Sen is heard saying, “The CPP has lost the election,” and calling for low-level officials to take note of that fact. The ruling CPP on Tuesday called for whoever made the tape—an edited portion of a speech in May in which Mr. Hun Sen quoted opposition candidate Prince Sisowath Thomico at length—to be punished.
