Verdict in Trial of RFA Reporters in Cambodia Now Due on Oct. 3

The verdict in the trial of two former Radio Free Asia journalists charged with espionage and the production of pornography will be announced on Oct 3, Cambodia’s Ministry of Justice and the reporters’ lawyer, Sam Chamroeun, told RFA’s Khmer Service on Monday.

The trial of Yeang Sothearin and Uon Chhin concluded on Aug. 9 and a verdict was expected on Aug. 30, but it was indefinitely delayed, with the judge saying he was busy in a workshop at the ministry of justice.

“I hope the news of upcoming verdict announcement on October 3rd will truly happen and we hope that the court will give true justice to both of us,” Yeang Sothearin told RFA.
