Prime Minister Hun Sen warned today that he would take legal action against anyone who exaggerates his health woes.

During a meeting at the Council of Ministers, Hun Sen said any Facebook user who fabricates stories about his health was a criminal who destabilized national security, according to government spokesman Phay Siphan.

“The government will take serious actions against such a criminal act,” Siphan said.

Prime Minister Hun Sen canceled all his appointments last week, flying to Singapore for what he said were health checkups and treatment for a right shoulder sprain.
