The raid came hours after Sam Rainsy criticized the government's plan to hold elections next year.Sok Eysan, spokesman of the ruling Cambodian People's Party, disputed Sam Rainsy's claims, saying the political atmosphere is calm and the government is not impeding the activities of any people or political parties.
