Leading a Government Minister to Safety

5/7/97

The FUNCINPEC Co-Minister of Interior was trapped in an isolated setting and, fearful of being executed, would not disclose his location to Amb. Quinn so that he could come and protect him. Working with the Cambodian People’s Party Co-Minister of the Interior, Amb. Quinn obtains guarantees for his personal safety. With these assurances, Minister You Hockry leaves his hiding place and reaches the ambassador safely. This allows him to remain in Cambodia and continue in some small way with the coalition government.
