Appeal Court rejects request to halt reinvestigation of RFA case

The Appeal Court has upheld the reinvestigation order into a pornography case against two former Radio Free Asia journalists who are also accused of espionage.

Presiding Judge Plang Samnang announced the decision in the court on Monday, saying he could not accept the appeal made by Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin, who remain under investigation more than two years after their initial arrest.

“The court needs time to research and review the pornography video, whether and how they were distributed and who participated in taking the photos — whether Yeang Sothearin was involved or not,” Samnang said.
