Cambodian Police Arrest Four Opposition Activists Amid Phnom Penh Protests

Two are later released, with two others still held by Cambodia's National Police.

Cambodian police on Aug. 6 freed two of four opposition party activists detained on Tuesday as protests continue in the capital Phnom Penh calling for the release of arrested union leader Rong Chhun, Cambodian sources say.

Released on Thursday night were Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) officials Chhin Sovanna and Ouk Sam Onn, with party officials Chum Puthy and Chuop Pheng still held by the National Police Commission, sources said.

Chhin Sovanna’s son Chum Phuto told RFA’s Khmer Service on Thursday that his mother had arrived safely at home following her release, but that his father, Chum Phuty, was still in police custody.
