Court Frees Cambodian Activist Charged With Insulting King

A Cambodian opposition activist facing rare charges of insulting the king was released on Tuesday after he issued a public apology to the monarch and long-ruling leader Hun Sen.

Two opposition figures — Yim Sinorn and Hun Kosal — were arrested last week and charged with insulting the king and incitement to commit serious unrest over posts on Facebook.

The pair wrote the posts after the king, Prime Minister Hun Sen and senior government officials attended a televised ceremony at Angkor Wat temple to light the torch for the upcoming Southeast Asia Games in Cambodia.
