Lawyer for Jailed Cambodian Union Leader Says His Client is Innocent

A detained Cambodian union leader who was deported from Thailand and formally charged for his involvement in the production of a documentary about sex trafficking plans to request bail, his lawyer said Friday.

Sam Titseyha told RFA’s Khmer Service that he will file to win release on bail for Rath Rott Mony next week.

Titseyha said because he was just assigned to the case, he does not have exact details, but maintained that Mony did not violate any laws and should not have been arrested. Authorities have claimed women who appeared in the documentary were paid and made up tragic stories of being sold into prostitution.
