Cambodian environmentalists charged with terrorism

Police allege the Mother Nature activists received terrorism financing from abroad to topple the government.

Cambodian authorities have arrested three people from the Mother Nature environmental group, charged them with terrorism and alleged their activities were “planned by foreign bosses abroad,” government-friendly media reported.

The Khmer Times said the three — Sun Ratha, an accountant; Ly Chandaravuth, a researcher; and Yim Leang Hy, a coordinator — were arrested two days ago by national police for being part of an illegal organization and using terrorist financing.

“All their activities are undertaken under the guise of helping the environment but actually incite the public to oppose and overthrow the government. This group operates with terror financing supplied to their bosses by foreigners,” Lt. Gen. Chhay Kim Khoeun told the newspaper.
