After Kem Sokha Meeting, US Advises Gov’t to Drop Charges

A day after having his court restrictions relaxed, opposition leader Kem Sokha on Monday met with the French and U.S. ambassadors at his home, though he refrained from speaking to journalists because he was unclear whether it would violate his ban on participating in politics.

Sokha was seen in public for the first time since he was arrested in September 2017 for allegedly working with the U.S. to overthrow the government. He was charged with treason and faces up to 30 years in jail.

The CNRP president, who was previously limited to staying within a 1 km radius around his house, can now travel around the country as long as he heeds summonses related to his ongoing case and does not participate in political activities.
