‘Never-ending’: Cambodia spy case journalists face new probe

A two-year-old espionage case against two Cambodian journalists has been extended yet again, after a Phnom Penh judge on Thursday ordered a reinvestigation claiming there was not enough evidence for him to deliver a verdict.

Former Radio Free Asia (RFA) reporters Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin were arrested in a late-night raid in November 2017, during which police found standard reporting equipment like computers and phones.

They were accused of supplying information to a foreign state, a charge that carries a prison term of between seven and 15 years, and held in detention for nine months before being allowed bail.
