In an interview, Prince Narindrapong told RFA that he admired the Khmer Rouge and that he opposed a Khmer Rouge tribunal. “I think Pol Pot was a patriot because Pol Pot liberated the nation from US imperialism,” he told RFA. Although he had a claim to the throne, Prince Narindrapong wanted to see the monarchy abolished after King Sihanouk finishes his rule, RFA said.
