Cambodia drops charges against youth leader

Yim Sinorn and nine others accused of conspiracy to commit treason had pleaded for clemency.

A municipal court in Phnom Penh has dropped arrest warrants and charges of conspiracy to commit treason against Yim Sinorn and nine others from the court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP).

This follows an intervention by Prime Minister Hun Sen, who referred a clemency plea from Yim Sinorn, the South Korea-based former youth president of the CNRP, and former party members to the justice ministry.

Yim Sinorn had written in a letter to Hun Sen that he and the other former members of CNRP had led a non-violent movement and never supported the “-Repatriation Movement in November 2019 as stated in the charges against them.
