Hackers’ Lawyer Has Yet to Hear From Court

The lawyer representing two members of the hacking group Anonymous Cambodia accused of attacking 30 government websites and stealing data said Thursday he had yet to receive any documentation from the Phnom Penh Municipal Court about the charges his clients face.

“I have not received the filed complaint from the court, but I did meet my clients one time since they were arrested,” said Dim Chaoseng.

On April 7, Bun Khing Mongkul Panha, 21, and Chou Songheng, 21, were arrested and later charged with unauthorized access to an automated data processing system and obstructing the functioning of an automated data processing system.

Am Sam Ath, a senior investigator for the rights group Licadho, said Thursday that his organization had yet to visit the two men at Prey Sar prison.

“As the case work is still under investigation by the court, we have not had a chance to visit the suspects in prison yet,” he said.

Following the arrests, members of Anonymous have targeted the websites of pro-government groups.

In the past week, members have claimed to take at least four offline.
