The Appeal Court on Thursday rejected the plea for bail by Rath Rott Mony, a suspected filmmaker who has been “temporarily detained” over accusations of “incitement to discriminate” for his alleged role in a documentary shown last October by RT, formerly Russia Today.
On Wednesday, Judge Suos Sam Ath presided over the hearing of Rott Mony’s bail plea, with prosecutor Tan Senarong presenting the case. The closed-door session started at 10:30am and lasted for only 10 minutes.
The Appeal Court also announced on Thursday that it upholds a lower court’s ruling of keeping Rott Mony in custody.
