Opposition leader Kem Sokha was again questioned in court on Wednesday about whether foreigners, including former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, mediated the merger of Sokha and Sam Rainsy’s past political parties to create the now-banned CNRP.
Sokha, who was in court for the eleventh day of his trial for allegedly conspiring with a foreign power, is accused of working with the U.S. to overthrow the Cambodian government. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
Rainsy, who co-founded the CNRP with Sokha, lives abroad to avoid a slew of criminal charges that he says are politically motivated.
