28 Opposition Officials Summoned for Incitement in Kampong Cham: CNRP

As many as 28 former opposition party members from Kampong Chamhave been summoned to appear in the provincial court over accusations of incitement, while a former CNRP district councilor for Phnom Penh also faces questioning for alleged incitement to disturb social security in the capital, the CNRP said.

Senior CNRP officials living outside Cambodia provided a list of 28 former opposition party members from six districts in Kampong Cham — including commune councilors, provincial youth party members, a deputy village chief, commune chief and other representatives — who were allegedly summoned between August 3 and September 2 on accusations of incitement to commit felonies, with one accused of plotting.

Chhorn Chandet, the provincial court’s acting chief of secretariat, said he was aware of 11 accused or witnesses being summoned in late August when asked about summonses for ex-CNRP officials, though he could not provide any of their names. Additionally, he confirmed that two people among the list of 28 names, Loch Sophal and Muth Sok Khem, were summoned to show up on Wednesday, based on a court order from Kampong Cham deputy court prosecutor Sothea Piseth dated August 4.
