Three Cambodian Opposition Members Held ‘Unfairly’ at Risk of Poor Health, Lawyer Says

Three Cambodian political opposition figures arrested last week on charges of treason after they posted information on the COVID-19 outbreak in the country have been unfairly detained and may suffer damaged health in custody, a lawyer for the group said.

Speaking to RFA’s Khmer Service, attorney Sam Sokong said that two of the men, Keo Thai and Yim Sareth, are at particular risk of poor health, as they have high blood pressure and must take medication every day.
