Cambodian opposition leader Kem Sokha still to face treason trial: PM

Cambodian opposition figure Kem Sokha, freshly freed from house arrest, will still stand trial for treason, strongman premier Hun Sen said Monday (Nov 18).

Kem Sokha, 66, is the co-founder of the banned Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), which was dissolved ahead of widely criticised elections last year.

Arrested in 2017 and accused of plotting to overthrow Hun Sen’s government, he was detained first in a remote prison and then under house arrest before his bail conditions were relaxed last week.
