Former RFA Reporters in Cambodia Appeal Court’s Decision to Reinvestigate Their Case

Two former Radio Free Asia reporters charged in Cambodia with espionage and the production of pornography have appealed a court’s decision on Oct. 3 to reinvestigate their case, saying the continued delays in reaching a verdict in their trial have left them stressed and unable to work.

Speaking on Thursday to RFA’s Khmer Service, Sam Chamroeun—an attorney for Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin—said he had filed an appeal on Oct. 14, urging the court to quickly conclude the case against his clients based on evidence already collected.

“We don’t know now when the court will be able to begin a new trial [based on the results of a new investigation],” he said.
