Appeal Court to Hear Petition From Kem Sokha Lawyers

The Appeal Court will hear arguments next week from Kem Sokha’s lawyers, who are opposing a decision by lower court judges to accept new evidence submitted by the prosecution in the opposition leader’s stalled treason trial.

In a court order dated Saturday, Appeal Court prosecutor Tan Senarong summoned Sokha, president of the outlawed main opposition CNRP, for a hearing on May 13.

Sokha has been on trial since January for allegedly conspiring with a foreign power to overthrow the government, a charge which he denies. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
