Cambodian opposition leader appeals against treason conviction

A top Cambodian opposition leader on Thursday appealed against his treason conviction for trying to topple long-ruling Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government, his lawyer said, criticising the verdict as “unjust”.

A court this month found Kem Sokha, a co-founder of the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), guilty of conspiring with foreign entities to overthrow Mr Hun Sen’s government.

Kem Sokha was sentenced to 27 years in prison and immediately placed under house arrest.
