Cambodian Police Arrest CNRP Official Keo Thai Without Warrant

An official of the outlawed opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) was arrested and detained Thursday by police in his house in Cambodia’s Komapong Chhnang province, the latest target of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s crackdown against CNRP members.

Court officials and police stormed the residence of CNRP Provincial Chief Keo Thai without an arrest warrant and took him into custody, his family told RFA’s Khmer Service.

Keo Thai’s daughter, Keo Chan Rachana, told RFA that she had no idea what crime her father is accused of. She said her father, an English teacher, had been doing his job remotely through online classes when schools were ordered to close due to COVID-19 outbreaks in the country.
