Some family values!

What a hypocrite...
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen announced Tuesday that he is severing all ties with his adopted daughter because she is a lesbian and living with another woman.

He made the remark in a speech at graduation ceremonies at a Phnom Penh university.

But Hun Sen, who is usually silent about his family life, told students they should not discriminate against gays.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to appeal to parents and society not to discriminate against them," he told the graduating class, adding that "Most [gays] are good people and are not doing alcohol, drugs or racing vehicles [like many young people]."

He did not say why he felt his suggestion should not apply to his own family.

"My adopted daughter now has a wife. I'm quite disappointed," Hun Sen said.

The Prime Minister said that he intends to go to court to have his daughter, who he did not name, formally disowned so that she could not claim any inheritance.

"We are concerned that she might one day cause us trouble ... and try to stake her claim for a share of our assets," he said.
