UN asked to intervene in CNRP journo’s arrest

Mu Sochua, the vice-president of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) has requested UN Women executive director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka to intervene in the case of former CNRP news presenter Yu Chantheany.

On September 13, Chantheany was charged with “conspiracy and incitement to provoke serious chaos to national and social security” and placed in pre-trial detention the next day.

In the letter obtained by The Post on Thursday, Sohua called on UN Women to raise its voice and take action to secure Chantheany’s “immediate and unconditional release”.
