Defense Lawyers Undecided on Kem Sokha’s Participation in January Trial

A lawyer for opposition leader Kem Sokha said the legal team had yet to decide if the former lawmaker would attend the January 15 trial that will rule on whether he conspired with a foreign power to overthrow the government.

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court has set January 15, 2020, as the date for Kem Sokha’s treason trial, more than two years after he was first arrested in a midnight raid at his residence in September 2017.

Chan Chen, one of Sokha’s lawyers, said the legal team had not discussed whether Kem Sokha would attend the trial, but that the lawyers would definitely be present in court on January 15.
