Cambodian PM to change his official date of birth

PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen (pic) said here on Tuesday (May 17) that he has decided to change his official date of birth to the true date when he was born.

Speaking at a meeting with a group of anti-Covid-19 volunteer doctors, Hun Sen said his current official birth date was April 4, 1951, but his actual birth date was Aug 5, 1952, which was in a zodiac year of the dragon.

He said an administrative error was to blame for his using a wrong date of birth for several decades.
